Meet Our Summer Interns Turned Full-Time Employees

Summer internships are a great way for college students to get their feet wet in the real world and life after college. It's also beneficial for those who may not know exactly what position or field they want to get into after graduation. 

Rockstar Interns Turned Full-Time Employees

Not all summer internships turn into full-time jobs, but it sure is nice when they do! GradGuard was fortunate to have several interns who started in May 2021 continue their internship long past the summer, and throughout the school year. After graduating, the three of them officially became full-time employees this summer.

We are thrilled to welcome Elie, Darique, and Emily to the GradGuard team as Membership Experience Specialists! They're a core part of our membership experience team that's committed to ensuring current and future members have the best experience with GradGuard.  

Get to know a little bit about them below.
