«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 ...»

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through the National Science Foundation (NSF) website, where they have a list of Research Experiences for Undergrads (REUs) at various universities throughout the country.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed learning how to do research. I had not conducted research before, and having my own project was really cool. Additionally, I enjoyed living in a different part of the country and learning about the culture and environment there.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging part of my internship was figuring out if unexpected results were due to equipment failures or to the actual test results. Part of this was due to adding components to my experiment that were also new to my professor and research mentor.

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

To make the most of a research-related internship, I would advise someone to take a risk and try something new for the summer. I never would have thought that I'd move to New Mexico for the summer to research turfgrass, but it turned out to be really interesting and was an awesome experience!

About the Organization ReNUWIt Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) Las Cruces, NM We are an interdisciplinary, multi-institution research center whose goal is to change the ways in which we manage urban water. Our vision is of safe, sustainable urban water infrastructures enabled by technological advances in natural and engineered systems, and informed by a deeper understanding of institutional frameworks.

The Right Question Institute | http://rightquestion.org

• Jonathan Moore (American Studies, Mass Media & Communications, 2017)

• Intern

• Full-time, 37 hours per week

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

My logistical work related to RQI's Summer Conference: preparing nametags and folders, editing and organizing itineraries, etc. My communications assignments entailed assisting with the organization's Twitter and ensuring the success of event technologies for participants.

How did you find your internship?I found my internship via Jumbo Jobs.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoyed working with the interns and staff as a hierarchical, creative and collaborative team. Creating outreach strategy and imagining new ways to support educators in the field was a truly rewarding experience, albeit only for the summer.

What do you find challenging?

Working independently can become trying over time if workload is minimal.

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

Be thoughtful about how important you want your contribution to be before accepting an internship, regardless of how superficially consistent with your intentions it appears to be.

About the OrganizationThe Right Question InstituteCambridge, MA

The Right Question Institute aims to make democracy work better by teaching a strategy that allows anyone, no matter their educational, income or literacy level, to learn to ask better questions and participate more effectively in decisions that affect them. The Right Question Strategy teaches two foundational skills: how to formulate questions (taught via our Question Formulation Technique™) and how to focus on decisions and use specific criteria for accountable decision-making (by using our Framework for Accountable Decision-Making). Despite their significance, these skills are rarely explicitly taught. We have designed simple methods to help individuals learn them and then teach others.

Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies (Cohen Lab) | http://rtc.sfsu.edu  Anonymous (Environmental Studies, Biopsychology, 2017)  Undergraduate Research Intern  Full-time, a little under 40 hours per week  Unpaid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I am working on a project that the lab had underway, but had recently set aside: analyzing tunicate (marine organisms) from Philippines samples from 2014 and 2015. This analysis includes barcoding the CO1 region of the mitochondrial DNA and comparing the samples to known gene sequences. My daily tasks include DNA extraction, precipitation, pcr, gel electrophoresis, and gene sequencing as well as minimal field work for various other projects in the lab (seastars and other tunicate field experiments).

How did you find your internship?

A teacher from my high school put me in contact with the lab, but there are also several internship programs that one can apply to that will connect you with a lab at the RTC. (REU and STAR are a few.) What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Since no one else is working on this project, I get to take complete ownership of it, and I feel very independent with access to many of the machines in the lab that I have been trained to use. I also have the support of the head of the lab and grad students that can help me if I ever get stuck or need advice. I have very much enjoyed putting my theoretical science background from Tufts into play every day with concrete lab work and exploring on my own.





What do you find challenging?

Since most of what I am doing is new research, I am sometimes on my own to figure things out. I have to use several different primers depending on the particular species of our sample, and sometimes the primers don't work (many new primers have only been developed recently). As with biology in general, a lot of it is trial and error, which can become frustrating, but there are many people in the lab who you can reach out to if you ever get stuck.

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

I would reach out to specific primary investigators/head of labs if you are interested in a particular category of research. Ask where they need help, but also advocate for what you really want to do in the lab. I talked to the PI of the Cohen lab on the phone about several ongoing projects, and I was encouraged to get more detail and choose the one I inevitably worked on, which made it more rewarding.

About the Organization Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies (Cohen Lab) Tiburon, CA RTC is a multi-institutional center for marine and coastal research, education and public outreach. We have strong partnerships with the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center’s San Francisco Bay research laboratory for marine invasive species and estuarine ecology, both located on our campus. Our professors and affiliated researchers have a long track record of excellence in the marine sciences, publishing cutting edge research in leading scientific publications and winning numerous, highly competitive grants and awards.

Ropes & Gray LLP | www.ropesgray.com

• Erica Warfield (International Relations, Economics minor, 2016)

• Strategic Initiatives Intern

• Full-time, 35 hours per week

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

As a strategy intern at a global law firm, one of my key tasks is supporting the firm's geographical expansion. This summer I have been doing research on the legal market in areas where the firm has recently opened offices or plans to potentially expand in the future.

How did you find your internship?Jumbo Jobs

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I have really enjoyed getting to know the firm from a 360-degree perspective, since strategy is involved with so many different areas within the firm. Rather than learn about a specific practice area, I have been given the chance to touch on a lot of them.

What do you find challenging?

It can be very hard to coordinate with other members of the strategy team because everyone is so busy with different deadlines. Our meetings often got moved around when a project took priority.

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

I think it is important to branch out of your specific job function and get to know others working around you. Learning about various jobs can help you find things you might be interested in. Applications for this position were due around February/March.

Sandia National Labs | www.sandia.gov

• Raewyn Duvall (Computer Science, 2016)

• Technical Student Intern

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

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

Do awesome research for national security issues facing our country today. (That's literally all I can say.) How did you find your internship?

My sister works there.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

You're working with brilliant and fun people. From going out for drinks to exploring the national parks around the area, and from playing board games every Thursday evening to trying greeb chili in every food, everyone at Sandia loves to have a good time. There's always something to learn from even just a simple conversation with them.

What do you find challenging?

Because we're working on new and classified material, not all the information needed for the research is public, so we’re continually coming up with original ideas for everything or hoping someone in the office knows. Google, alas, is not a reliable tool anymore.

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

Apply early (the deadline is in February, but the application opens in September)! Also, be totally down for intense research and not knowing what you're doing at all.

About the Organization Sandia National Labs Albuquerque, NM Exceptional service in the national interest.

How did you find your internship?Imaginet e-mail newsletter

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I loved being able to work in and explore different domains at the internship and find what really interested me. I was fortunate to work on a very social account and participated in photoshoots, content concepting, and client-facing meetings/pitches. I also gained a lot of experience in social analytics and creative. I came in knowing nothing about advertising and was quickly taken aback by how creative and detailed working with an agency is. I really enjoyed every second of my internship. The Intern Project is something I'm extremely proud of, and the internship program itself is a great way to not only immerse yourself in an agency environment, but also to surround yourself with people who are continually thinking out of the box and trying to launch the next big thing. The work culture at Sapient is amazing and extremely collaborative.

What do you find challenging?

Balancing mentor work with work on the intern project was challenging.

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

Reach out and meet every person that interests you, as well as people who are in domains you don't know much about. Everyone in the New York office was so helpful and willing to speak with any intern throughout the entire summer. Be sure to network and learn from people at Sapient; they are such an innovative agency with great thinkers and problem solvers.
