Episode #46: Elise Gelwicks – Internship Expert, Founder of InternView

Elise Gelwicks, the Internship Expert, Author, and Founder of InternView joins the show to share her journey from the Fortune 500 and management consulting to designing meaningful internships and personal development workshops for companies. Elise and I were classmates at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. I remember her being super smart and well-liked, someone who was destined for great things. When I heard she was leaving her corporate and consulting jobs in order to go all in on her passion, I got super pumped and knew we needed to catch up for an interview! Elise is one of the most genuine, self-aware, helpful, and bright leaders you’ll ever meet. This episode covers everything from how she got the idea for InternView to how to win a raffle. Here’s a small sample of what you will hear in this episode:

  • How to start a business and write a book in college
  • Lessons from the Fortune 500 and management consulting
  • How Elise started InternView
  • Elise’s favorite workshop to lead
  • How to create an effective internship program
  • Networking tips to advance your career
  • How Elise feels about the ending of The Sopranos (no spoilers)
