COLE WELLMAN (AT 2455)
"In regard to my internship at Ameritas:
I am honored and extremely grateful to be a part of The Experience Company. The organization has progressed so far in an extremely brief period of time. It was only August 2017 when the internship program was formally established, and within months undergraduates were being placed at various companies around the state. I personally benefited greatly from this initiative, as I was hired as an intern by Ameritas Investment Corp. in February of this year.
Prior to obtaining help from The Experience Company, I submitted my resume to Ameritas online, through their application portal. For weeks I heard nothing and got no response. When two of the board members for The Experience Company, Steve Anderson and Conner Dana, heard about this struggle, they decided to kick things up a notch. They leveraged their personal networks, and within a few weeks I was able to obtain an interview, and later an internship offer. Without their help, I am confident that none of this would have been possible. I cannot thank them enough.
This story is one of the clearest examples of how The Experience Company facilitates leadership and personal development: by connecting qualified candidates with incredible opportunities. I am excited to see the program continue to grow and shape new leaders at the University of Nebraska."
