Saying Goodbye To GBSN

Allyson FreedmanStepping into Global Business School Network’s doors four months ago, I could barely even edit a video. Now, I’m piecing together full-fledged mini-movies effortlessly.

Global Business School Network gave me the perfect internship. From writing blogs on Case Method Month to sharpening my computer skills, GBSN provided the tools I need to become a stronger journalist, professional and teammate.

From day one, I was treated like a real employee. Rather than spending tedious hours sorting the mail or memorizing coffee orders, I was given valuable tasks that have properly prepared me for the world of work. As a graduating senior, GBSN has served as the ideal segue from college life to my first job. GBSN has strengthened my abilities in writing, reporting, researching, editing and computer programming. Every skill I acquired at GBSN will enhance my professional life and give me a leg up on my first job.

Page has served as an amazing mentor this semester. After learning so much from her, she has become one of my role models. From editing my articles to walking my through website designs, Page has tailored my internship to help me exceed my potential. She was always had time to tutor me, no matter how swamped she was with her own work. Every intern should be lucky to have a boss like Page.

I have also absolutely loved working with Sarah, Guy and Nora. Working in a small office, everyone was really close. From birthday lunches to staff meetings, it was a pleasure to work with each staff member, and I hope everyone stay in touch.

Leaving GBSN is bittersweet. I have valued my entire experience here, and I will miss everyone in the office. As I say goodbye to GBSN, I leave with more professional skills than I could have ever imagined. I have become more confident in my own capabilities as an employee and feel ready for my first job out of college. Working with GBSN is an honor, and words cannot describe how much I have loved interning here. Thanks for the opportunity!


Allyson Freedman has spent the last semester working in GBSN's Washington DC office as an intern in the Communications department.  She is a senior at George Washington University and has interests in journalism and nonprofit communications.
