Charles Wilson ’17, B.S. Social Science: Psychology

“I attribute my post-graduation success to the invaluable experience I received through RSU’s internship program. Following my internship with Rogers County Youth Services, I was hired as a direct care staff member. After graduation in 2017, I began working as the Mayes County Care Coordinator with YouthCare of Oklahoma. The time I spent at my internship sites equipped me with an array of transferable skills and vast knowledge of work in the field of behavioral and mental health. The internship experience put me a step ahead in my field and opened the door for me to quickly transfer into a bachelor’s level position post-graduation. I am confident that I acquired my current position because of my internships and know that I would not have gained such success without the valuable experience I received in the RSU internship program.”
