«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 15 ] --

I most enjoy feeling included within my team and meeting other interns. I love how the HR department hosts various programs for the interns to meet with leaders and network.

What do you find challenging?

The hardest thing about this internship is figuring out the relationship between the tasks assigned and their purpose or what the end goal of the assignment is.

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

Don't be afraid to ask questions when you don't know the answer to something and try to follow up with people as often as possible. There is a lot of work to be done and everyone’s time is constricted.

Application deadlines vary so contact the HR representative.

About the OrganizationGuardian LifeNew York, NY

How does a company get to be over 150 years old, while still staying relevant to today? The answer lies in maintaining a strong set of values while keeping our clients’ needs primary in everything we do. As a mutual insurance company, we are owned by our policyholders who share in Guardian’s actual financial results through annual dividends. These payments are determined by the firm’s profits, and Guardian has paid a dividend every year since 1868. We take the very long view, invest soundly, and maintain a strong capital base that enables us to meet our insurance commitments today and far into the future.

Our sole responsibility is to our clients and policyholders, and that is reflected in everything we do.

Guardian | www.guardianlife.com

• Matt Paleologopoulos (Computer Science, Quantitative Economics, 2017)

• IT Development Intern

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

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

I do database related tasks primarily for an application that my team is working on, which could be anything from writing code to providing documentation. Basically, my team will give me work to do based on project needs.

How did you find your internship?

Tufts Sci-Tech Career Fair. I also saw a posting on Jumbo Jobs.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I liked pretty much all aspects of the internship, but I most appreciated that I contributed meaningful work. The work I have been doing is actually set to go into production for the application, which is awesome to see, and I feel like I will come away with actual, relevant experience.

What do you find challenging?

I work with databases, which I learned about briefly in class but I had to learn a lot about here. The people around me did a great job of helping me learn what I needed to, so even though it was challenging it wasn't frustrating or unnecessarily difficult.

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

For the application deadline, I would visit the booth at the career fair and be sure to follow up with an email. The program at Guardian did a good job of providing opportunities to be involved, such as talking to leaders in the company and networking events. It was easy for me to be more involved just through taking advantage of these opportunities.

The Hague Institute for Global Justice | http://thehagueinstituteforglobaljustice.org  Samuel Berzok (Political Science, 2016)  Summer Fellow  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Paid; Received grant from the IGL What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I mainly assist with research going on in the three program areas of the think tank: Conflict Prevention, Rule of Law, and Global Governance. Additionally, I provided event support and social media assistance.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through a friend who was involved in the Tufts Institute for Global Leadership.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Gaining perspective on global peace issues from a Eurocentric viewpoint prompted me to change my views as an American citizen.

What do you find challenging?

There was a learning curve in the level of research because I was the single undergraduate summer fellow while the others were prepared for graduate/professional level research.

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

Be on top of your assignments and be friendly to your coworkers. This was by far one of the best office environments I've worked in because everyone was friendly with each other inside and outside of the office. Applications are collected during the spring semester.





About the Organization The Hague Institute for Global Justice The Hague, Netherlands The Hague Institute for Global Justice is an independent, nonpartisan organization established to conduct interdisciplinary policy-relevant research, develop practitioner tools, and convene experts, practitioners and policymakers to facilitate knowledge sharing.

Harvard Medical School | http://neuro.hms.harvard.edu

• Helen Schmidt (Biology, 2017)

• Research Assistant

• Full-time, 35-40 hours per week

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

I assist a graduate student with her research project by sorting, observing, dissecting, and imaging fly brains. I also have independent projects as part of her thesis topic where I use the resources of the lab to follow information I find interesting.

How did you find your internship?

I found this internship through a friend who attends Harvard University and emailed the director of the lab to set it up.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I have a lot of freedom to pursue side project, and there has never been something I haven't been allowed to take part in. Everyone in the lab is more than happy to teach me as many techniques and pieces of information as I request, regardless of its relevance to my projects.

What do you find challenging?

It's difficult working with graduate students because of how much time they commit to their projects and how much they know about their research. It's tough to start in the middle, but it's also a great, challenging experience if you're considering grad school.

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

Ask a lot of questions, ask about other events going on (like thesis defenses or seminar talks), do more than what's expected of you and get help from everyone in the lab, not just the mentor you're working under.

The Home for Little Wanderers | www.thehome.org  H. Gemma Stern (Psychology, Child Development, 2016)  Undergraduate Intern/ Direct Care Counselor;

 Full-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving grant/financial assistance (Forest Foundation) What do you do as an intern at this organization?

The Home for Little Wanderers is a large organization that serves 7,000 kids. I spend 3 days a week at Harrington House, a group home for children who have experienced traumatic events, had attachments to primary caretakers disrupted, or have not had the opportunity to form healthy attachments. I work directly with the kids on things like homework help, crisis intervention, hanging out, art projects and offsite trips. I participate in staff meetings where we discuss treatment plans, and I also complete other projects (e.g., creating a program brochure, visual behavior charts, welcome packets). I am also in The Home Corporate Office 2 days a week, where I work with the Fundraising and Communications team on projects and learn what it takes to run a program like Harrington House.

How did you find your internship?

The Psychology Department sends out emails with internship/research opportunities. The original job was unpaid and part-time. However, through other Tufts students, I heard about the Forest Foundation, which funds undergrads working in non-profits over the summer. I got very lucky and both organizations (The Home and Forest Foundation) were willing to make an internship that worked for me.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The Home for Little Wanderers cares A LOT about their interns. All interns (and new employees) participate in a 3 week training program. I am now certified in CPR, First Aid, and Therapeutic Crisis Interventions (certifications that will serve me well in the future). Additionally, the Forest Foundation provides a lot of support for grant recipients. I feel extremely supported and that I am learning a lot -both are wonderful organizations. I also really enjoy splitting my time between working directly with the kids at Harrington House and working in more of an administrative position at the head offices. I am able to figure out which parts of the job I enjoy the most and I am never bored. My supervisors have helped me explore my passions and tailor my work to things I find interesting.

What do you find challenging?

Working with children in Harrington House residential home has been one of the biggest challenges I have faced. This work is emotional. Almost all of the children come from abusive pasts and it is heartwrenching to hear their stories. This work is emotionally draining, and I advise anyone looking into this internship to make sure you are in a place where you can take this on emotionally.

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

1) IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WORKING AT A NON-PROFIT, APPLY FOR THE FOREST FOUNDATION

GRANT!! APPLY EARLY! The deadline is not until March, but I applied early Jan. and was accepted to the program in Feb. (rolling acceptance). 2) The Home has over 100 interns. Look into all the options. They are a wonderful organization! 3) If you are working directly with children, make sure you can take on this emotional toll, and make sure you have supportive people you can talk to during your internship.

About the Organization The Home for Little Wanderers; Boston, MA The Home provides a seamless continuum of vital programs & services for every stage of child & family development. Serving children from birth to 22, we make a positive impact on 7,000+ lives each year through behavioral health services, therapeutic residential and special ed, adoption & foster care.
