Our internship program started in 1982 at A.E. Schwartz & Associates, a small Boston-based comprehensive management, training, and organizational development/consulting company. According to the CEO of both A.E. Schwartz & Associates and HIMC, "we've refined our internship program over many years and it remains an integral part of our core, our development, and our giving back. As HIMC grows, we promise our interns hands-on projects giving them the opportunity to learn through doing and to make real-world contributions.”
Our mentorship approach provides for a mutually beneficial relationship between our executives and interns. Additionally, we never give up our interns mind-numbing office work. Rather, we assign interns to projects that match their unique abilities and enable them to contribute to our business in a meaningful way.

What was most impressive about working with Andrew was his personal commitment to making internships a true learning experience. Andrew is an unbelievably busy person who still finds the time to be very personally involved in his interns' development. He is sincerely interested in helping interns meet their career goals. Andrew will give you as much work as you can handle and the trust and guidance for you to carry it out. Almost as soon as I began working with him, Andrew gave me a manual to work on and scenarios to write. My brain was exercised as often if not more than my copy editing skills. The office is also a very exciting and dynamic environment, full of interesting people who are all busy with their own projects. Every time I talk to Andrew, he is brimming over with news of the office and the web site. An internship working with Andrew is sure to be a rewarding one for motivated individuals, no matter what their interests. Aubrey Spath, Harvard University
This past summer has been one of the most unique experiences of my life. As a member of the sales and marketing department I was able to work first hand with actual projects and did not perform clerical tasks. I was an integral member in a team that produced a business plan for venture capital and also assisted in the development and marketing of several different products. Most importantly I was able to work side by side with Andrew Schwartz and learn the industry through his experienced eyes. It was truly a great learning experience. Adam Scott, Washington University, St. Louis
This is no typical paper-shuffling internship. People are given a great deal of responsibility over their work, which fosters a sense of pride and achievement. To make things even better, there's a fantabulous camaraderie in the office and the change to work with a spectacular group of people. I feel I am very lucky to benefit from such an opportunity. Christina Neamtu, Harvard University
I entered the internship with the expectation of learning about business, sharpening my sales skills and improving my written and oral communication skills. I also wished to develop writing and editing abilities. Time spent is well worth it as Andrew provides the proper mix of guidance and autonomy allowing you to develop at your own pace. My work centered mainly on networking with potential clients. I greatly improved my telephone skills, gained confidence in dealing with people, learned how to manage my time and how to effectively organize my work. I recommend the experience to anyone interested in learning about the business and/or anyone interested in developing their interpersonal and managerial skills. John Harnett, Boston University MBA
I would tell a prospective intern that his or her work will be relevant. The value of the experience I received there cannot be measured. I feel that this internship will give me a great advantage over others who have had other internships, or who haven't experienced one. Mr. Schwartz's hands-on approach was extremely helpful. He was readily available for questions, and provided frequent feedback that helped me grow as a writer. I have matured greatly as a writer. The novelty of the abundance of work overwhelmed me at times, but it will benefit me greatly in the long run. I will be prepared to take on a plethora of work that any future profession may require. It has been a gratifying experience. I have received my name on a couple of projects which will be extremely useful in procuring a position in the future. I would recommend this internship to anyone who aspires to get a step up on the competition in the marketplace. Jason Morris, Brandeis University
