«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 23 ] --

Because I was a Next Generation Scholar, I had already developed a relationship with the program. The Executive Director approached me with the internship opportunity, and knowing the flexibility I had with the program, I knew I would gain insight on different aspects of psychology.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy being able to help rising seniors work through their college essays and read the finished products, knowing that I played a role in putting moments of their lives into perspective and helping them develop their writing skills.

What do you find challenging?

I found it difficult to act as an authority figure for students with whom I attended classes during my time in the program. In the beginning, I definitely struggled with creating boundaries and developing a student-teacher relationship; however, I strived to find a happy medium.

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

Since working in a non-profit like Next Generation Scholars allows one to explore issues in low-income communities through psychological, economic, sociological, and medical lenses, I would take advantage of the interaction with younger students and their families.

NGP VAN | www.ngpvan.com

• Alice Lee (Computer Science, ELS, 2017)

• Developer Intern

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

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

I am part of a development team working on projects in the same capacity as any junior hire.

How did you find your internship?

A family friend mentioned they were looking for interns so I cold applied.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I like the team I'm working with and the general atmosphere.

What do you find challenging?

Learning a new code base in a new language takes a certain amount of ramp-up time.

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

The interviews are all coding based but not terribly difficult. Make sure you read the prompts in full and pay attention to details.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I work on the Ecommerce Feature Development team. Two other interns and I are spending the summer iteratively prototyping a web-based service that would provide product lookup to Nordstrom customers.

Each day, I meet with my co-interns, our mentors, and work on our code base to improve our project.

How did you find your internship?

A listing found on Indeed.com, a job search engine.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

There are many different sectors of technology at Nordstrom outside of the website (Ecommerce) team, and I love that I was assigned to work on customer-facing technology. In addition, our manager opted to assign us a project as opposed to simply doing small tasks with pre-existing code. This has made for a more independent and exciting experience.

What do you find challenging?

The greatest skill I have had to hone this summer is communication and collaboration on a team headed for a common goal. It is not hard to communicate successfully, but I underestimated just how large of a component it is to success. Knowing how to take the initiative to ask for help is important, as is knowing how to discuss project details with team members who do not always have the same vision as you.

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

Internships are out there, and you don't always have to have an "in" with a company to get an interview.

I recommend reading online about what computer science student resume should contain and having multiple people proof yours by September or October. Apply to internships before, during, and after Thanksgiving; look out for December 1st deadlines in particular.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey's Office | www.mass.gov/norfolkda

• Manal Cheema (Political Science, Cognitive and Brain Sciences, 2017)

• Special Victims Unit Intern

• Part-time, 24 hours a week hours per week

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

I assisted with daily case intake and management, researched case law and statutes, as well as prepared documents for court proceedings. I worked closely with the Administrative Assistant and Victim Witness Advocates in the unit, serving as the only intern, and took responsibility for managing the victim's hotline. Finally, I created and updated the 2013 database of all cases related to the Special Victims Unit.

How did you find your internship?Through the Norfolk DA Website

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy the learning experience of having so much exposure to these types of cases as well as being introduced to criminal law. I live in this district, so it has been fascinating to see what types of crimes take place in the town I live in and the surrounding towns.

What do you find challenging?

I find the material I work with to be the most challenging. Sexual assault and other abuse cases, especially when it concerns children, are quite jarring to read and work with. However, the office is comforting and the advocates and staff are always willing to talk about the cases.

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

I would recommend that you get to know the victim witness advocates as much as you can. The stronger your relationship is, the more likely they are willing to bring you to their court sessions, which is a wonderful opportunity. If you can, go to the weekly field trips put on by the Internship program, as they bring you to different courts, jails, and fascinating presentations by state troopers and attorneys. The application deadline is generally around February 6.

About the Organization Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey's Office Canton, MA The Family Violence/Special Victims Unit handles cases of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, child abuse, elder and disabled person abuse. The unit is comprised of specially-trained assistant district attorneys, victim witness advocates, and state police troopers.

How did you find your internship?

I was referred to Northlight by Dr. Heather Nathans of the Department of Drama and Dance.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

It is a thrill to be so intimately involved with Northlight's staff and productions. The environment at the theatre is inclusive, and the plays being produced here are both engaging and entertaining. To be a part at all is an honor; to be so important is a thrill.

What do you find challenging?

It took a little while get accustomed to both Northlight and the theatre industry at large, but I got into the rhythm eventually and became incredibly comfortable with the staff.

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

If you want to intern at a theatre, read their mission statement and look at their previous seasons to make sure you agree with their artistic ethos. It makes a huge difference if you enjoy the plays you're working on.

About the Organization Northlight Theatre Skokie, IL Northlight Theatre aspires to promote change of perspective and encourage compassion by exploring the depth of our humanity across a bold spectrum of theatrical experiences, reflecting our community to the world and the world to our community.

The opportunity to interact with the constituents. Individuals are often frustrated with the bureaucracy which characterizes many government agencies and they are incredibly thankful to have us to advocate for them on their behalf.

What do you find challenging?

This internship involves a lot of writing, which I enjoy but can also be difficult as there is a lot of research that goes into the memos and letters.

Be patient! It can be difficult to find a government internship, especially one that includes a stipend.
