NCCC Success Stories

Employers SAY...

"He was a phenomenal intern for us. To be honest, at first I was a bit nervous about how we would communicate and relate to each other, but it was really a non-issue throughout his whole internship. Not only did he have a fantastic work ethic but his designs were great—the communication was really not an issue at all. We used instant message and e-mail and we would use whiteboards and it was just very smooth.""
