The internship experience at Jackson Community College enabled the investigator to experience the actual functions of a community college counselor. It provided an opportunity to interact with staff members, interview different employers, and present placement information for students and faculty. Many times during the internship there were opportunities to plan specific objectives and implement them. Completing the actual objectives and responsibilities of a counselor in a community college setting has been extremely valuable. A traditional college class could not have duplicated these types of experiences.
