Cameron Mitchell '19

CHARLOTTE, N.C. / February 11, 2020 - Before the start of the fall semester, Cameron Mitchell ’19 learned he was selected to intern for Congresswoman Alma Adams. Mitchell, a Charlotte native, served as Congressional Press Intern to Adams, who serves North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District in which Johnson C. Smith is located. Mitchell learned about this opportunity through an email sent from The Center for Career and Professional Development, which provides students with career readiness, internship opportunities, resume workshops and professional clothing at JCSU.

“I was able to gain a personal experience with how congress works on a district level, as well as a national level,” Mitchell expressed. 

During his internship, Mitchell attended events with Adams, work and assisted staff with general clerical duties, researched news articles and assisted with set up for events. 

Mitchell, who graduated as a major in Interdisciplinary Studies major with concentrations in Public Leadership and Sustainability, emphasized the experience students gain during internships.

“The experience you gain is unmatched. Internships can easily blossom into job opportunities or added people to your network,” he said. 

Mitchell finished his internship and graduated December 2019.
