Of course you are expected to return if the company pays for it, if you don’t return you have to pay back the Tuition. But you can intern elsewhere during your summer

Most campuses only prohibit same-industry summer recruiting for sponsored students.

Yes - otherwise why would they pay for it? 😅 If you don’t return, you just pay the money back (tuition, stipend, other bonuses). Obviously leadership won’t be happy since they’ve made an investment in you and are hoping that you’ll stick around for the long term Expectation is that you intern elsewhere over the summer though - there’s no point in you interning at a place you’ve already worked

like

Yes. You’re expected to return for 2 years or you have to pay them back. There are a couple different ways the sponsorship can be structured, for some you can intern wherever, for some you have to intern at McK over the summer

I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then.

I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)
