University of Delaware - Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics

By Imani Gibbs November 5, 2021

Each summer, students from the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics gain valuable professional-level exposure through internships. This year, young scholars were able to traverse the complications of the COVID-19 pandemic by pursuing an array of internships, externships and other professional development opportunities. Each profile of this series will detail a Lerner student’s experiences working on business-oriented projects.

Luke Sinibaldi, Class of 2022 economics major with a minor in professional selling and sales management, spent his summer interning as a legal intern at Eyet Law.

Lerner: How did you find out about this internship? Why did you choose it?

Sinibaldi: I found out about this internship from a family member who knew the attorney I worked under. I chose this internship because I am a law school hopeful.

Lerner: Did the coronavirus pandemic impact your internship search and working experience? If so, how?

Sinibaldi: Yes, there were very few internships anywhere. I had to interview online.

Lerner: What did you learn from this internship that you think you would not have learned elsewhere?

Sinibaldi: The true legal process and what goes into legal research.

Lerner: What is an example of a time where you were able to apply what you’ve learned at Lerner to your role?

Sinibaldi: Pay attention to detail.

Lerner: How do you think this internship will aid you with your professional goals?

Sinibaldi: Not many undergraduates get a prestigious internship such as this. This internship gives me an upper hand in the law school application process.

Lerner: What are your plans or next steps in your career once your internship is over?

Sinibaldi: My plans are to become a lawyer.
