What does Clark’s management major and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) have in common? Chris Nguyen ’23!

This summer, Chris is working a Project Management Intern for DESE. While the connection between Chris’s academic studies and DESE’s industry might not seem immediately clear, he applied for this internship because it would allow him to explore different fields and find out his strengths, talents, and interests.

As a summer intern, Chris has acquired valuable leadership experience & learned how to effectively and efficiently communicate using online platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Throughout his internship, Chris has leaned on his alumni mentor, Emilee Cocuzzo ’18, MBA ’19, for advice and insights to make the most of this opportunity. He encourages all Clark students to use #ClarkCONNECT to build their support system by connecting with alumni mentors!
