PerkinElmer, Inc. | www.perkinelmer.com  Meredith B. Reynolds (Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, 2017)  Supplier Quality Engineering Intern  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Paid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I spent about 1/3 of my time in the office working on a large process improvement project to update SolidWorks drawings for The Twister III product line (Microplate Handler Robot). I also worked on several smaller projects to update quality documents and procedures. The other 2/3 of the time I completed daily tasks in incoming inspection such as inspecting parts from vendors, writing notifications for nonconforming parts, and communicating with manufacturing/engineering/purchasing to resolve quality issues.

How did you find your internship?

I had heard of the company because my father worked at a company called Zymark, and in 2003, Zymark was acquired by Caliper Life Sciences. Caliper Life Sciences was acquired by PerkinElmer in 2011. I checked the company website frequently for internships and applied as soon as internships were posted in the spring. A few days later HR called and I visited the same week for an onsite interview.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed working with people in many areas of the company such as purchasing, engineering, manufacturing, and shipping. Throughout the summer, I met about 75 people including two Tufts alumni and another Tufts student! I was never bored because there was always more work to do, and I enjoyed having a lot of responsibility. My manager was approachable and once made me laugh so hard that I cried. There were two other interns who I worked with in the quality group (out of 20 interns total).

Lunchtime activities were also a plus: beach volleyball, running group, employee BBQs, gardening, and Yoga/CrossFit classes.

What do you find challenging?

The company is extremely busy so I had to be proactive to accomplish tasks. I also found it challenging to leave something unfinished when a more urgent project/task arose.

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

The summer goes by fast, so talk with your manager at the beginning of the internship about what they would like you to accomplish and what you want to accomplish. Become invested in what you are doing;

people around you can tell if you care about it. Ask questions. Be a team member. Take every opportunity possible to learn. Exceed expectations. Represent Tufts! There’s no set application deadline, but check the company website frequently during the spring semester (March/April) for intern openings.

Port of Oakland | www.portofoakland.com

• Molly Greer (Geology, Environmental Studies, 2016)

• Engineering/Geomatics Summer Intern

• Part-time, 25 hours per week

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

As an intern I helped with ongoing land surveying projects around the Port of Oakland. The main project that we worked on was laying out monument points on port property to discern where property lines exist because there is not a good record.

How did you find your internship?

Port of Oakland website What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed that I was able to spend the entirety of most days outside working with the equipment.

Additionally, the internship program provided entrenchment experiences with each of the three parts of the Port of Oakland.

What do you find challenging?

As a non-engineer, learning a completely new field was challenging. I had to learn to set up equipment that I had not used before, and at times I did not entirely understand what we were working on.

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

I would advise people to apply for positions even if they don't meet all of the requirements. I applied for this position because it sounded interesting and because I knew that it would be a valuable experience. I am not an engineer with academic experience, but I still got the position and have learned a lot from it.

Protobrand | www.protobrand.com

• Raffi Chilingaryan (Economics, Finance and ELS minors, 2017)

• Analyst Intern

• Full-time, 35 hours per week

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

I help the research team at Protobrand develop, analyze, and gain insight from surveys built to conduct consumer behavior and brand perception research.

How did you find your internship?

A listing site: Indeed.com What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The thing I was most happy about at Protobrand was the level of trust that the research team put in me and the responsibility I was given to make a real impact on the company.

What do you find challenging?

There is constantly work to do. I am assisting the research team with their projects as well as working on my own independent project for the company. Doing my own project justice while helping the other analysts out requires a lot of mental energy.

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

Be yourself and have fun with people. It is natural to feel intimidated by senior staff in the first few days or weeks, but having positive relationships with your advisors is extremely important so that you can make the most of them as a resource.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

The Public Defender Service (PDS) provides legal representation to people charged in felony criminal cases who cannot afford an attorney. I assist my supervising staff investigator and my supervising attorneys in investigating specific cases. My tasks include gathering documents, serving subpoenas, finding and interviewing witnesses, and documenting crime scenes.

How did you find your internship?

This internship is listed in the legal jobs and internships section of the Tufts pre-law webpage.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The work that I do actually matters. I cannot overstate how rewarding it is to interview a witness or find a crucial piece of information that helps my supervising attorney build a case. Our clients are incredibly disadvantaged and to know that I'm helping them is a fantastic feeling.

What do you find challenging?

It can be frustrating to spend all day trying to find witnesses and records, only to come up emptyhanded. That's part of the job, but it's not enjoyable to return to the office after a long day driving around DC with seemingly nothing new to show for your efforts.

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

Apply early, as it's typically a competitive position. There's a schedule on the PDS website with all the various application deadlines. If you're accepted, make the most of it. Volunteer for new tasks, ask your attorneys to give you meaningful work, and generally try to squeeze every inch of experience out of your time.

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

I manage social media for the Garden Justice Legal Initiative (GJLI). Also, I organize and prepare for events which includes making flyers and print materials. Outside of my normal workday, such as during the evening or on weekends, I set up, attend, and break down events. I also visit gardens and farms.

How did you find your internship?

Organization website What do you enjoy most about your internship?

My supervisor Kirtrina is INCREDIBLE! My favorite part is getting to know the food justice community in Philadelphia by attending events and gardens/farms.

What do you find challenging?

Being in an office all summer and working on the computer a lot.

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

Apply early! I applied in December and had my summer pretty much set up before spring semester, which made the spring less stressful. Get to know the other interns - I started enjoying the office SO MUCH more when I began going to lunch with other folks in the office and becoming friends with them!

It made the atmosphere a lot more welcoming.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I did passage research, fact checking, blog writing, and a number of clerical tasks. This changed somewhat, depending on which projects the company was working on at the time of the internship.

How did you find your internship?

I googled publishing jobs in Boston and applied to essentially everywhere that I could find.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The people were nice and appreciative of my work. They were also very responsive to feedback, which showed an effort to help me enjoy the internship.

What do you find challenging?

There are a lot of detailed requirements in educational publishing that make finding passages or graphics that meet all of the standards quite difficult.

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

Consider what you're learning on every task you perform. I did a very clerical-based task for about two weeks, but it helped when I realized that through it I was learning a lot about educational standards, which is important for the field of K-12 textbooks.
