These are their stories.

Ashley Griffith is a graduate student in the Master of Health Administration program at Indiana University Fairbanks School of Public Health. After graduation in 2017, she hopes to land a fellowship position in a not-for-profit health system.

Indiana INTERNnet: What got you interested in HR?

Ashley Griffith: I wanted to see how a health system ran from a system-wide perspective.

Write a Compelling Internship Posting, Part I

Summer internship season is quickly approaching. This is Part I of a three-part series on crafting internship postings that will attract qualified candidates on Indiana INTERNnet and elsewhere.
