Fall Career Week nets student impressive internship

Tracy Donhardt | October 31, 2017

My name is Becky Acker, and I am an English Studies major, IUPUI class of 2020. I just started my internship with a non-profit organization called “Word As Bond” which provides free writing workshops to writers in high school and above. This organization came across my radar when I attended the IUPUI Career Week Panel, “The Write Career for You.” One of the founders of  “Word As Bond” was speaking on the panel, and after the event I went up and introduced myself, we set up a meeting, and now I am an intern! My internship involves communication, social media management, and web design, and you can check us out at We’re always looking for new writers to participate in our events! I’m so grateful that the career programming here at IUPUI granted me access to this wonderful opportunity.
