"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."

"Ascent 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. 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."

"Ascent has given me the opportunity to better myself in every way and provided me with a process that enhanced both my strengths and weaknesses. I was able to develop my design talents. 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."
