HawkForce Alumni Feedback

“I absolutely loved the work environment at Ohio Real Title. I know this is a great experience and helped to clarify what I want to do with my life. My advice to other HawkForce applicants is to take any opportunity available to you. “ 
Jack Kovac ’20
“I know that it is extremely uncommon to have an internship opportunity right after my first year of college and I was extremely grateful to have the opportunity to participate in one this summer. I believe this internship made my Hawken education feel more even more valuable than it already was.”
Jordan Slaughter ’20
“I didn’t want to fight for 'internship spots' at my college and knew HawkForce would help me find a more personalized experience that fit my interests.”
