See What the Pros Say

From landing a paid internship to learning how the real world works, our alumni are our biggest raving fans.

Ampersand has given me the opportunity to better myself in every way and provided me with a process that enhanced both my strengths and weaknesses. With the projects I was given, I was able to develop my design talents and my communication skills by using Adobe and Canva. My internship experience was both instructive and eye-opening. My supervisors taught me step-by-step how to complete each task, and once I got the hang of it, they gave me the flexibility to do tasks that involved creativity. I'm especially proud of my social assets because it allowed me to utilize my imagination and envision how I wanted to develop a specific template while still adhering to the company's branding guidelines."

Allison McKinney
Compass, Intern

As we wrap up the experience in the platform, I’m walking away with the skills I need to get my dream job, like creating a strong resume and tailoring it to a job description, putting together a detailed portfolio, and activating my network on LinkedIn and beyond. I developed my professional communication and presentation skills, learned about SEO and blog writing, and built connections with my managers that will help me in my exploration of potential careers."

Cameron Cole
Willamette University, Sophomore

Ampersand has been beyond helpful throughout this entire process. They were always available to answer any questions I had and gave me the confidence I needed to be a better intern. I appreciated the career help that I was given by Scott. It made me realize that I really can achieve any career path I want if I put in the work on my LinkedIn and polish up my resume, as well as grow my network. I also enjoyed my weekly meeting with Scott to catch up on my progress at my internship. These sessions gave me the confidence boost I needed and also clear up any questions I had about literally anything."

My daughter did go back to school with "umph" in her step thanks to Ampersand's Achieve Bootcamp program this summer. She is also articulating what she wants so much more effectively. I think her work with your team helped her clarify her thoughts and asks of what she will want in a job.

The mentor sessions with my Ampersand coach were the greatest tool I had when learning how to ask for help or express that I’m having difficulties with my manager. I was able to meet up in our one-on-one sessions and have my coach walk me through how to address the challenges I’m facing and what plan of action we would take to overcome them. I learned through the Ampersand program that asking for help or not knowing something is okay and it's better that you ask and that you put that forward so that you can be at your professional best.
