Internships often lead to careers. For example, a past participant in the Maryland Internship Program (MIP) had this to say:

“I completed the MIP back in 2011-2012 and was placed [in the Maryland General Assembly]. I was then lucky enough to be asked back for the following session as an intern, and was then offered the position of Legislative Aid for the 2014 session. Without the MIP I might not have discovered my passion for state politics, and not be sitting where I am today. Thank you again for putting together such a wonderful program.”
