Three internships, a variety of extracurricular activities and a competitive drive make for an excellent résumé and a well-rounded college graduate. 

Miller’s hospitality management internship with The Westin Hotel in Hilton Head, S.C., is the one Miller feels gave him the best experience. Miller’s other internships were with Marathon Petroleum Co. and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. 


“These three internships gave me industry experience, even before I graduated, that I used as a competitive advantage over other graduates when competing for a full-time position,” said Miller. ​
