Student Painters gave me the opportunity of a life-time, to run my own exterior painting company. My summer as a Branch Manager has allowed me to run a $70,000 business while profiting $12,000. Honestly the profit is not why I took this internship. The experience this internship gives you is worth much more than money. The skills you gain through Student Painters are the most real world skills you need to pair with the book knowledge that any business school teaches students. You can be the best student in the world but sometimes those lessons do not quite translate perfectly to the real world and Student Painters gives you the opportunity to have problem solving skills to figure out how to translate those gaps.
