GMCC Internship Collaborative

The GMCC Internship Collaborative, launched in Spring 2023, aims to provide students with practical work experience and insights into the chamber's operations. Partnering with CT State Manchester, we offer internship opportunities during the fall, spring, and summer semesters through their co-op program model. This collaboration enables interns to engage in a variety of tasks, including administrative duties, social media and marketing projects, and support for our four major events. Interns also attend events and serve as ambassadors for the chamber. This program fosters mentorship, professional skill development, and community involvement, benefiting both the students and our chamber.

Marketing and Administrative Assistant
Former GMCC Marketing Intern of Spring '23

In the Spring semester of 2023, I enrolled in Manchester Community College (now CT State Manchester) and majoring in Communications. As a student I dedicated most of my time to volunteerism, which lead to a meaningful professional introduction to Millie the GMCC’s President, while volunteering at MACC Charities’ 50th Anniversary Gala. I was given the opportunity as an intern position and welcomed to the team!

During my internship, I gained knowledge and refined the skills I had gained at CT State. I gave this internship my all, and I am glad it paid off! Now I am GMCC’s Marketing and Administrative Assistant and a CT State graduate!

After the success of my internship, the Chamber is opening its doors and welcoming in more CT State Manchester students! Through the GMCC Internship Collaborative, our mission is to provide students with opportunities that will open doors to their dream careers.
