About the Organization National LGBTQ Task Force New York, NY The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice, and equality for LGBTQ people. We’re building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I am researching the energy performance of homes built for the Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition. In addition to my research, I regularly meet with my two research mentors, go to professional development classes, and attend talks about research at NREL in various fields.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship (Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship) on the NREL website.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

This internship has been an amazing experience. It is great to work at a place where advanced renewable energy research is being performed. Outside of work, it has been great hiking, biking, and exploring the Colorado outdoors.

What do you find challenging?

The internship program requirements are to write a research paper and present at a poster session at the end of the summer. Initially I found all the technical writing that I was required to do challenging, but I have improved tremendously over the course of the summer.

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

If you want to get scientific research experience, national laboratories are a great place to get an internship. The application requires several essays and a couple of letters of recommendation, so make sure you get an early start on it.

About the Organization National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Golden, CO At NREL, we focus on creative answers to today's energy challenges.

• Sofia Augustine-Adams (International Letters and Visual Studies, CMS, 2016)

• Audience Engagement and Media Intern

• Part-time, 25 hours per week

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

As an intern at NECIR, I work as part of the audience engagement and outreach team and as a multimedia creator. I do research on which publications and organizations will be interested in our stories, I run our Instagram account, and I get to create visual content to go with the investigations. I shoot both photos and videos that are incorporated into stories.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through the Experimental College at Tufts.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I love that I am getting hands-on journalism experience. For example, I photographed Massachusetts fishermen who were fishing in lakes with mercury warnings for an investigation on potentially rising mercury levels in MA. I am not often stuck getting coffee or sitting in the office.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging part about this internship is that it is unpaid. I have to balance my time between this internship and jobs that pay.

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

The most important element when applying for internships or jobs similar to this one is having a story, documentary, photo essay, or other product that you have produced and completed. Being able to show a potential employer that you have past experience while showcasing your skills and interests proves to employers that they will not have to train you from scratch, and that you can start producing interesting content right away.

New England Wildlife Center | http://wildlife-education-center.com

• Laura Coughlin (Biochemistry, 2016)

• Wildlife Rehabilitation Medicine Intern

• Full-time, 55 hours per week

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

The Center strives to immerse its interns in all aspects of wildlife medicine, so interns are involved in everything from determining treatment plans for newly admitted animals to administering medications to basic care of the animals (feeding, cleaning cages, etc.). I also assist vets during surgeries by monitoring anesthesia and assist vet techs in performing radiographs and blood diagnostics.

How did you find your internship?

I found this internship when I was looking through the TIP Book Profiles from past years.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I really enjoy getting the opportunity to work with so many different species of animals. Every day of work is different; people are always finding different animals that are orphaned or injured and bringing them to the Center for care. Just today, I've provided care for several raccoons, squirrels, red tailed hawks and a great blue heron, and those are just a few of the many animals currently at the Center. In addition, the job itself is incredibly rewarding. To watch an animal come in with an injury and then be able to release that animal back into the wild after several weeks of care is an amazing experience.

What do you find challenging?

The hours are challenging. They are advertised as 9 - 5 pm, but be prepared to stay much longer, as the vets and interns work until everything is done for the day. Most days the interns did not get out of work until 8pm or later, which can be frustrating, as you sort of miss out on a relaxing summer where you get to have a social life. But that being said, I believe the internship is completely worth it. The staff are extremely supportive, and you get tons of hands-on experience. It just would've been nice to know exactly what I was getting myself into before I started the internship.

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

Ask questions. The first few weeks of the internship are very overwhelming because interns are thrown into helping with meds and procedures and animal care from day one. I found it helpful to ask questions because there's so much that you're learning in such a short period of time. The vets and vet techs are really dedicated to helping interns learn as much as they can during their internships, so they're a great resource not only for help, but also for information about career paths and vet medicine in general. The deadline for summer interns is February 15, and winter/fall interns are accepted on a rolling basis.

About the Organization New England Wildlife Center; Weymouth, MA New England Wildlife Center is a non-profit that uses humane care of injured and orphaned wildlife as a platform for teaching conservation and basic biology to K-12 students and veterinary medicine to undergraduate students. As the only wildlife hospital in the metro-Boston area, it operates on the principle that every animal deserves care and has provided treatment for over 100,000 wild animals since its founding.

• Michael Wang (American Studies, Community Health, Chinese, 2017)

• Health Policy Intern

• Full-time, 50 hours per week

• Unpaid but receiving Tisch Summer Fellow grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I enhance the knowledge base and capacities of the Center for Evaluation and Applied Research in regards to policy issues relevant to the LGBTQ immigrant population in New York State. I conduct literature reviews and assist in the development of policy recommendations for public health interventions by reviewing and analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data; prepare briefing papers for supervisor conferences by consolidating extensive overviews, talking points, hot topic sheets, and profiles; and compile relevant data and draft reports and policy proposals in regards to the impact of housing insecurity and domestic violence on the mental health of New York immigrants. I also engage with New York community members and leaders by consulting neighborhood organizations.

How did you find your internship?

Tisch Summer Fellow What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The staff and work environment What do you find challenging?

Finding direction and a long-term project at the beginning of my internship What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Research the organization and current initiatives beforehand to get an idea of work that you would like to get involved in.

New York Yankees | www.yankees.com

• Matthew Yaspan (Computer Science, Economics, 2016)

• Statistical Analyst

• Full-time, 30 hours per week

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

I create and test statistical models that evaluate baseball players and baseball strategies; and I provide statistical descriptions of players or strategies to give the rest of the team a better sense of the information involved in decision making.

How did you find your internship?

I applied online through the MLB Team Jobs site.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

First and foremost, I love baseball, so going to work at Yankee Stadium every day is sort of like going to Disney World every day. I enjoy that I am not treated with kid gloves as an intern. After about an hour of on-boarding, I was an analyst.

What do you find challenging?

Like I said above, I was thrown right into a project about an hour into being employed by the Yankees.

So when I encounter errors in my code that I don't understand or my results are off that can be tough.

Still, I receive plenty of help.

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

Work hard to make yourself a good analyst before even applying. There's an unlimited supply of people who want to work for a professional sports team. You need to show from the get-go how good you are and that you can help immediately.
