  • Meet Heritage’s Facebook Featured Fan, Noelle Clemente

    Each week, The Heritage Foundation highlights one of its more than 275,000 Facebook Fans on its “Featured Fan” page. This week’s fan is Noelle Clemente, a former intern in The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program. Read her story, below, and be sure to become a fan on Facebook!

    “I guess I’m just worried about my future,” Dustin Hoffman’s character famously repeated in the classic 1967 film “The Graduate.” More than four decades later, Noelle Clemente had similar concerns after graduating from Elon University in May 2010. Amid a terrible economy and out-of-control deficits, how would she find a job?

    Fortunately, The Heritage Foundation’s internship program offered Noelle, 22, a place to turn during her intense post-graduation job search. As a Broadcast Services intern who later transitioned to a research assistant role in the Center for Media and Public Policy, Noelle was able to apply her journalism degree to learning more about the intricacies of Capitol Hill at The Heritage Foundation’s Washington headquarters.

    “The opportunity to learn from and work with such well-respected experts in D.C. was a huge part of why the internship was so beneficial,” Noelle told The Heritage Foundation. “I was connected with what’s going on online and in news outlets – that’s probably the most valuable to me. My supervisors were great and they really included me in what they were doing.”

      I blog on foreclosures and have started gathering economic news for my newer blog. It is a HUGE concern that people who are educated woudl not be able to find a job quickly once graduated. I think many turn down jobs that they don't feel would pay enough or perhaps they expect too much just out of school. It is GREAT that Heritage had an internship available for her. KUDOS
