Brenda Capuano

From Brenda:

"It has been my pleasure meeting and assisting students who are eager to apply the skills that they have learned at SUNY Orange to a rewarding internship. Internships are perceived as today's interviews! If you want to gain work experience, apply classroom skills, network with professionals, and market yourself in real time; then consider an internship. I look forward to helping students increase their chances of being hired by obtaining internship experiences."

Donald Green

From Don:

"I know first-hand how valuable a Career & Internship Services office can be to a young adult looking to get on a career track. One of my own children graduated from a good four-year school with two Bachelor's degrees and couldn't find any work in his field. Somewhat in desperation, he went back to the Career Services office at his college and they ended up getting him a three month internship. That was about six years ago. They kept extending the internship and increasing his responsibilities and eventually hired him full time. He's still there."

Dorian DeBlasio

From Dorian:

"Watching the students come in with questions and go out with answers, with resumes, and with leads on a new career is a real pleasure to see. It's nice to work in an office where you feel as if you really make a difference in the lives of so many people."
