«Welcome to the fourth edition of the TIP Book! The Tufts Career Center is excited to provide you with internship profiles packed with helpful advice ...»

-- [ Page 10 ] --

I mainly helped the post doctoral fellow with four ongoing projects. The experiments included immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, ELISA, Bradford assay, spleen harvest (from mice), Treg isolation, bone marrow monocyte isolation, peritoneal macrophage isolation, and RT/qPCR. Since each experiment required incubation times, I worked on multiple experiments during the day and switched from one experiment to the other. After completing the experiments, I performed data analysis either during breaks between experiments or during off-hours. Also, there were weekly lab meetings and biweekly 1:1 meetings with the principal investigator. Later on, I received my own intern and was responsible for mentoring her, explaining each experiment and answering any questions.

How did you find your internship?

I was granted this internship after multiple attempts. I emailed the professor during my junior year of high school, but was under 18 and not allowed to conduct research. Each year I emailed, but the lab was full. Through much persistence, I was able to work in the professor's lab for this summer. It is imperative to be proactive and email professors doing research that you are interested in.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed the remarkable amount of independence I had. After the postdoc gave brief overviews of each experiment, I completed them alone. I had both the independence to do experiments and also the liberty to ask whichever questions I wanted, no matter how stupid. The environment was free of hostility, and I felt like if I wanted to better understand a journal, propose ideas, or ask a simple question, I could do so freely.

What do you find challenging?

Although I enjoyed the independence, I also experienced the stress associated with it. Since I had control over my experiments, and had many going concurrently, much focus was required. As a result, mistakes were easily made and could result in restarting the entire experiment. Also, I might complete a 2-3 day experiment with inconclusive results and have to repeat the experiment. Furthermore, all my free time was decided by experiments, including lunch, so it was sometimes ~15 minutes.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

I would suggest reading journals during off-hours and continually thinking of ideas for the project. Many projects will reach a bump in the road, and by your creativity, you can think of an experiment that will solve the problem. For instance, my team was having trouble elucidating the mechanism for a certain phenomenon, and eventually, my intern and I proposed a mechanism and ran a pilot experiment. Also, I would highly suggest taking advantage of all the people in the lab, asking career advice (or any type of advice) to get valuable input.

About the Organization Columbia University Medical Center has been praised consistently for the quality, innovation, and academic rigor of its educational programs and for the unsurpassed excellence and international prominence of its faculty.

Referral from Jo Williams, Drama Department Production Manager What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed working with equity theatre professionals on a large-scale production that reaches an audience of around 50,000 people over the course of a three-week run.

What do you find challenging?

It was a lot of physical labor and heavy lifting, in addition to the unpredictability of working outside, rain or shine.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Summer theatre internships start taking applications in January; start early and utilize every connection you have. Theatre is 20% what you know and 80% who you know.

How did you find your internship?

It was through a mentor referral.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Just getting to see how a TV show works and all the different components that go into making a show. I also enjoyed the nature of it; everyone was in a good mood, and overall, it was a fun environment to be in.

What do you find challenging?

On slow days, it was hard to stay focused and busy as our work was dictated by the amount of stuff that needed to get done that day.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Get to know as many people as you can. Try and expose yourself to many different staff members. There are so many different positions, such as editors, writers, producers, etc.

Consortium on Gender, Security, and Human Rights | http://genderandsecurity.org

• Rachel Canowitz (Sociology, Drama, 2017)

• Summer Intern

• Full-time, 35 hours per week

• Unpaid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I work as an Intern Assistant, so I send emails on behalf of the Staff, balance the schedule, and act as a liaison between the interns and the Director. I also help with the Filmography project, so I research filmrelated resources, analyze their relevance to the Consortium's work, and provide them to the greater Research Hub.

How did you find your internship?Jumbo Jobs

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The Consortium employs a large group of interns who are assigned to projects and jobs that match their unique skills and interests. If you do not enjoy a project, you can be removed from it. If you need more work, they will find something for you to do. There is a broad range of topics to be covered, so the learning possibilities are endless.

What do you find challenging?

The entire staff is only three (incredibly hard-working and nonetheless attentive) people, so it can sometimes be difficult to feel heard or ask for more work as they try their best to accommodate everyone.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

If you are working at a small NGO (or any small non-profit), chances are good that you will have opportunities to do the real, meaningful work of the organization. In order to get this good work, you must express self-sufficiency and a genuine passion for the goals of the organization; it can be very easy to slip into mindless work.

About the Organization Consortium on Gender, Security, and Human Rights Boston, MA Our mission is to create a more peaceful, just, and gender equitable world through programs designed to produce cutting edge gender analysis of war and peacebuilding, transform gender and security research and policy agendas, and foster innovative education, activism, and practice.

Consulate General of France in Chicago | www.consulfrance-chicago.org  Hannah Gersten (French, International Relations, 2016)  Cultural Service Intern;

 Part-time, 32 hours per week  Unpaid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I am responsible for writing newsletters summarizing French cultural events in the Midwest that are disseminated to 8,000 people. In addition, I translate documents such as emails, press releases, and brochures; update the website FrenchCulture.org with upcoming French cultural events taking place in the Midwest; and complete other administrative tasks such as updating calendars, sending emails, taking notes during meetings, and editing documents.

How did you find your internship?

I sent a spontaneous application to the Cultural Service in March with my resume and cover letter and was contacted early in the summer about working as an intern.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I love having the opportunity to speak French at work and keep up to date on the French cultural events happening in my area after spending a year abroad in Paris. I've learned so much about international and multilingual workplace dynamics, the life of diplomats, and the day-to-day happenings in

international diplomatic organizations. Plus, I've genuinely enjoyed the projects that our office supports:

film festivals, cultural celebrations, educational materials, university outreach, and art exhibits.

What do you find challenging?

It is certainly a challenge to balance my workload. Depending on which project we're working on, I could be overwhelmed on a certain day and left with nothing to do the next. My supervisors have been great about providing me with long-term projects and allowing me the independence to create my own schedule and spread out the work. I find it extremely helpful to ask my supervisors which work should be prioritized and if any projects are urgent so that I am able to organize myself.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

I encourage all future interns to develop their own personal projects (something they enjoy doing) within the activities of the Cultural Service. Because I am passionate about French culture, I have thoroughly enjoyed writing and publishing newsletters and website articles that advertise events happening in the Midwest. Plus, my superiors have noticed that I'm competent in this skill, and they've given me more independence to do the work!

About the Organization The Cultural Service at the Consulate General of France in Chicago is a division of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. The Cultural Services was first imagined in the 1930s, and in 1945, General de Gaulle appointed the first Cultural Counselor, with the mission of providing Americans (individuals and organizations) with access and resources to engage with French culture and promote it in their own communities. Today, under the leadership of Antonin Baudry, the French Cultural Services provides a platform for exchange and innovation between French and American artists, intellectuals, educators, students, the tech community, and the general public. Based in NYC, DC, and eight other U.S.

cities including Chicago, the Cultural Services develops the cultural economy by focusing on six principal fields of action: the arts, literature, cinema, the digital sphere, French language and higher education.

Corporate Accountability International | www.stopcorporateabuse.org

• Natanya Trazenfeld (Community Health, International Relations, 2017)

• Non-Profit Administration Internship

• Part-time, 27 hours per week

• Unpaid; Received travel stipend What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I was an intern in the recruitment department. My main responsibilities were to screen all candidates applying for jobs and internships, coordinate the fall intern recruitment program, and increase the visibility of the organization's job openings through job sites and listservs.

How did you find your internship?Jumbo Jobs

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The two best parts were the other interns and the orientation. There were sixteen summer interns, and we all got along incredibly well since we have shared political and academic interests. Especially for a summer internship, making friends was a huge bonus. Secondly, the orientation is incredibly comprehensive. Learning the history of the organization, campaign organizing skills, and the purpose for our mission made the work so much more meaningful and rewarding.

What do you find challenging?

Everyone in the organization contributes toward development efforts and campaign actions. This means periodic phone-banking to ask members to take action or donate money. Making these strong asks can be uncomfortable for some people.
