«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 26 ] --

I found my internship through Imaginet, Tufts' Marketing and Advertising club.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy SapientNitro's culture. The office has a work hard, play hard mentality and everyone is willing to talk frankly about their experiences in the industry. Crafting and delivering a client pitch was also a highlight of the internship. My fellow interns and I operated like a mini-agency throughout the summer to produce this final project.

What do you find challenging?

Balancing my standard responsibilities with my desire to explore different domains within the agency is sometimes difficult. That said, most people in the office are happy to share their expertise and explain what they do.

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

Be persistent throughout the application process. Once you're there, take initiative and talk to people at the company. Keep track of what you accomplish each day so that you can adjust your experience to meet your expectations.

Seeding Change: A Center for Asian American Movement Building | www.seeding-change.org  Wayne Yeh (American Studies, Asian American Studies minor, 2016)  Seeding Change Fellow  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

The Seeding Change Fellowship is organized by the Chinese Progressive Association in San Francisco, and 26 fellows are placed at 12 host site grassroots organizations in six states across the country. I was placed at the Chinese Progressive Association in Boston's Chinatown, where I supported the Chinatown stabilization campaign, translated for Chinese tenants facing eviction, designed newsletters, and supported the Chinatown Community Land Trust.

How did you find your internship?

Through current Asian American students at Tufts and also through people I met during my time as a Tisch Summer Fellow at the Chinese Progressive Association in Boston What do you enjoy most about your internship?

This fellowship provided an opportunity for Asian American activists and organizers from across the country to come together and share our experiences and strategies. I enjoyed being part of a larger movement while building intergenerational relationships.

What do you find challenging?

It was challenging to engage with and feel knowledgeable about what other fellows were doing at their respective sites across the country. We had weekly webinars where all the fellows would come together and debrief around a certain topic. This certainly made all of our work feel more connected toward a larger social movement.

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

For people interested in activist and organizing spaces, I would suggest finding organizations that have already been well-established in the community you wish to work with. I would highly encourage students of color who are interested in working with low-income communities of color and grassroots organizations to personally reach out to me.

About the Organization The National Fellowship Program for Asian American Organizing and Civic Engagement develops the leadership of a new generation of activists and organizers who are deeply invested in building the power of and improving the lives of working-class Asian immigrant communities. Running from June to August, the fellowship program provides 10 weeks of intensive training, ground work, and reflection.

Beginning with a week-long training and orientation, fellows come together to orient themselves to the theory behind the community work as well as build community with each other. The bulk of the fellowship is on the ground work with host organizations. Placed at grassroots organizations across the country, fellows will develop an understanding of organizing work in a local context, develop and strengthen their organizing skills, and connect theory with practice.

Self Help Graphics & Art | www.selfhelpgraphics.com  Alexia Sanchez (American Studies, 2016)  Intern  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I work with the organization’s youth and community art programs. The majority of my time is directed at the S.O.Y. Artista Program (Summer of Youth Artist Program), a five-week art training for local youth ages 12 to 18. During the program I work side by side with artists who are instructing the workshops. My responsibilities include assisting the instructors with their weekly lesson plans, budgeting for and distributing art supplies to each workshop, and assisting with the student evaluations and the end-ofprogram exhibition. I also provided hands-on support during Self Help Graphics & Art's summer artwork exhibition, which serves as the main fundraising tool for the organization and an opportunity to sell and showcase SHG artists’ work from the previous year.





How did you find your internship?

Google: I specifically looked for art centers that catered to a Latino population.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I want to pursue an art career and my internship supervisor is very supportive of it. He allows me to work on projects alongside the students during their S.O.Y Artista workshops. I was also able to meet several Chicano artists who came into the office to drop off their prints or use the space to do artwork.

When artists come over, my internship supervisor makes sure to introduce me and sometimes asks them to teach me some basic art techniques.

What do you find challenging?

One of my major responsibilities was assisting the S.O.Y Artista instructors with their silk screening, watercolor, printmaking, photography, and mixed media workshops. Several of these art mediums were completely new to me, but to make the correct supply orders for each class and to be of assistance, it was important for me to become familiar with a wide array of art materials and techniques.

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

Self Help Graphics recruits undergraduate students every year for the Getty Multicultural Summer Internship Program. The application deadline is in early May and more information can be found on their website. This intern will mostly work on the development and organization of Self Help Graphics & Art's print inventory. But if you are interested in art programing and working directly with youth, contact Joel Garcia, Director of Programs & Operations, and express your interest.

About the OrganizationSelf Help Graphics & Art (Boyle Heights, CA)

Incorporated in 1973, Self Help Graphics & Art is the leading non-profit visual arts center serving the predominantly Latino community of Los Angeles. Self Help Graphics' mission is to drive the creation of new work by Chicano and Latino artists through fine art printmaking and multiple visual art forms.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I run experiments with rats, which includes manipulating specific regions of the hippocampus by performing cannula lesions.

How did you find your internship?

I contacted the professor directly.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I get to experience the workload that a Ph.D. student has to endure for a very short period of time.

What do you find challenging?

Giving up many other priorities to focus on the lab work was a challenge.

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

Be ready to put in many hours of work and sacrifice other parts of your everyday life. If you’re interested and feel qualified, applying by March is a safe choice.

About the Organization Seoul National University Lee Lab Seoul, Korea The goals of research in our laboratory are to translate neurobiological and neurophysiological observations into cognitive and mental phenomena. In particular, we want to elucidate how the brain learns a new event in the external world and retrieves the memory of the event effectively to produce adaptive behavior. Our main techniques are to train and test laboratory animals in various goal-directed memory tasks and to monitor electrophysiological activities of a large number of single units simultaneously as well as local field activities in neural networks.

Shire Plc | www.shire.com

• Jacob Isaacson (Chemical Engineering, Engineering Management, ELS, 2017)

• Analytical Development Intern

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

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

The Analytical Development department at Shire does laboratory experiments to determine the structure and function information of drug candidates. I work in the lab trying to develop a charge profile for one of Shire's drug candidates in order to determine the different ways it is glycosylated, which can have an effect on its function.

How did you find your internship?

My girlfriend works in a lab at Northeastern and forwarded me an email about the job from one of the people who works in her lab. The person who works in her lab is a friend of the hiring manager, who sent out the email to some of his friends. The job was never posted online.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Spending time in the lab makes the day go by really quickly. I get to think analytically and apply the science that I have learned at Tufts to make conclusions based on my own experiments, and I design new experiments to learn more about the drug.

What do you find challenging?

The science is really challenging. The people at Shire have high standards when it comes to lab work, and everyone works extremely hard. Shire definitely has a fast-paced culture, and most of the full-time employees and contractors work 60+ hours per week.

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

Talk to as many people as you can. It is easy to get tunnel vision and focus too much on your project, your group, and your department. Look outside of what is immediately around you to see if there is something that interests you elsewhere in the company.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

As an intern at Silicon Labs, I worked on developing the test framework for radio chips, and later, on development for their new radio software interface. Each day consisted of working on code and meeting with engineers and mentors at the company.

How did you find your internship?

Engineering Boutique Career Fair at Harvard last fall What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The office was very welcoming. Everyone I worked with wanted to make sure I had a good experience and got to work on real projects that would get used by both employees and customers.

What do you find challenging?

The internship was primarily about software support for chips, and as an EE, I don't do as much coding as a CS major. I did a lot more coding than I expected (all of the time), but I caught on fairly quickly and it was still enjoyable.

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

Reach out and talk to people. Ask them how they got to where they are. Ask them for advice about graduate school. Ask them why your project isn't working when it was working five minutes ago. They are probably more than happy to help you and talk to you.
