After graduating from Muhlenberg College where I double majored in Business Administration and International Studies, I decided to apply to Career Israel. Although it was not my area of studies, I had become very interested in water technologies after a trip to Bangladesh. I wanted to get involved in water technologies and to learn the industry. I wanted to gain some experience and learn how to apply ideas from industrial water technologies to solutions for third world countries.
In Israel, the concept of an intern is a novel idea; companies don’t always know how an internship is structured which has turned out be a fantastic benefit. I interned at Whitewater Security in Tel Aviv, and I was given much more responsibility at my internship at Whitewater’s Quality and Security division than I had at any previous internships in America. I was fortunate to be able to learn the water industry through reading periodicals and writing executive summaries for the top executives at Whitewater. I was also given major assignments researching water utilities in North America and around the world to identify potential clients.
