«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 16 ] --

I compiled and analyzed data on international trade topics ranging from international markets and geopolitical relations to corporate structure and foreign tax systems. I also attended many events and composed reports on congressional hearings and various think-tank and government agency events.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship on the liberal arts career network website (LACN), a Career Center resource.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed the very broad exposure to Washington D.C. and many different areas of policy. Some days I would be covering the Iran nuclear deal and others I would be monitoring the upcoming presidential elections. Every day was different, and I was always learning about new things.

What do you find challenging?

A lot of this internship involved researching and writing about highly technical and legal aspects of international trade. I didn't have a strong background in this before coming to IBC, so at the beginning I had a steep learning curve.

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

Take advantage of all of the networking opportunities that you get by being in DC; that being said, don't forget to network with your peers. In the long run, those will be the most useful connections.

• Anonymous (Biomedical Engineering, 2016)

• Research Intern

• Full-time, 42 hours per week

• Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I write graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for the laser and data acquisition systems, assist in experiments, prepare solutions and buffers, and take optoacoustic spectral data measurements on marker dye candidates.

How did you find your internship?

Professor referral What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I really enjoyed talking with research scientists around the institute about their roles, backgrounds, and plans, while learning about new techniques and their projects. IBMI has graduate students and postdocs with a variety of backgrounds because biomedical imaging is so multi-disciplinary, and it's really amazing to see everyone working together to solve problems.

What do you find challenging?

My limited background in optics and imaging made me unprepared for a lot of the technical aspects of the internship. This was more of a learning experience than an official position, though, and in the end I definitely learned a lot about both acoustics and optics. Another challenge was that the field is very new, so the experiments we did would often yield inconclusive results.

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

Ask questions and dabble around the office to learn from everyone. People are always happy to teach you something.

Institute for Music and Neurologic Function | http://musictherapy.imnf.org

• Brian Aronow (Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Jazz Performance at New England Conservatory, 2017)

• Research Volunteer

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

• Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I assist my supervisor with article evaluations, reference sheets, and technical support. The research we were supposed to conduct together got off track due to some delays with funding. I have also been working with some patients as a music therapy assistant in group and individual settings with my supervisor.

How did you find your internship?

Family friend referral and emails What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy the patients I get to interact with on a daily basis. I also enjoy how much I've learned about the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and music all within one domain.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging part is remaining patient with several aspects of my job. Not only with patient interactions, but the lack of funding to the IMNF (non-profit) slows down much of the progress. What takes a day in college might take a week to get done here, and that can be very frustrating!

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

Don't force yourself to like every single aspect of your job; set your goal to complete the internship even when you can be frustrated. I'm very glad that I did this internship, but I’m also going to be very happy when it is finally completed.

Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston | www.icaboston.org

• Casey Betts (Art History, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, 2016)

• Curatorial Intern

• Part-time, 14 hours per week

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

I assist the curatorial department at the ICA and work closely with the curatorial assistants. My tasks are mostly administrative, such as compiling exhibition history of artists and aiding in correspondences with museum donors, other museums and art historical institutions, and individuals/institutions that loan artworks to the museum. I also work with the museum's permanent collection.

How did you find your internship?

ICA / Boston website What do you enjoy most about your internship?

As someone interested in museum work, it is good for me to see how a curatorial department functions and the day-to-day tasks involved in organizing an exhibition and maintaining a contemporary art collection.

What do you find challenging?

It can be difficult to get attention from everyone in the department, especially more seasoned curators, because they are incredibly busy. I force myself to ask questions when I am curious about anything rather than waiting for something to be explained at random, because that is the best way for me to learn.

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

As I said, ask questions! Although it may feel like you are inconveniencing someone, it actually shows initiative and interest when you inquire about something you or someone else is working on at the museum.
