«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 29 ] --

The freedom I have at TED took some getting used to. In my previous internships, I had more guidance and specific tasks to complete on a daily basis. Here, I am kind of on my own to organize my time and make the most of my day. It's been a really great learning experience, and I now know it is something I will look for in a future job.

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

Don't be afraid to introduce yourself –TEDs workspace is such an awesome environment with so many cool and interesting people that I was initially intimidated to introduce myself to members of other teams. Once I got over this, I was able to meet so many and learn about all the cool stuff they were doing at TED.

• Jane Acker (Quantitative Economics, Philosophy, Dance, 2017)

• Account Executive Intern/Account Assistant

• Full-time, 50 hours per week

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

I manage over 150 projects by trafficking, contacting clients, briefing creatives, and tracking budgets and billing forecasts.

Other tasks included basic illustration and Photoshop use, photography, creation of pitch decks, attending client meetings, recruiting, and editing.

How did you find your internship?Family referral

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The small agency environment gave me exposure to both the delivery and client service side of marketing. There are hundreds of active projects with tight deadlines, and the team is very close, so it was both exciting and deeply rewarding to be needed and challenged daily.

What do you find challenging?

The internship was originally supposed to be part-time, so I was not prepared to be working more than 40 hours a week. It was an intense taste of the working world, where client interactions could be very challenging at times—client service requires true patience and humility) What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Be organized, but you will make mistakes. The atmosphere is very supportive and casual (ping pong table, kegs, etc.), and they really live by the core values described below. Don't ask too many questions – just embrace the creative process. They are always looking for Web Design, Graphic Design, and Account Executive Interns, so I would recommend contacting Torque in March or April expressing interest in one of the positions.

• Molly Greer (Geology, Environmental Studies, 2016)

• Student Intern

• Part-time, 16 hours per week

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

As an intern at Towill, I assisted with many mapping projects. Some of my responsibilities were matching aerial photographs with known ids from Google Earth, distinguishing structures in LiDAR data, and working with the project manager on other aspects of ongoing projects.

How did you find your internship?

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

At Towill, I was able to learn about a different aspect of mapping -- and with that, many new softwares.

What do you find challenging?

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

Ask a lot of questions because the people you are working with do not expect you to understand everything that you are doing.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I work on my team's research projects; specifically, I created a website to disseminate research components and results. In addition, I designed mobile maker kits for use in urban elementary schools as part of the project and to exist beyond the project. I also helped with smaller tasks like revising an evaluation system and transcribing video.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship in mid-April, pretty late in the game. I became friendly with a TA for a class that I enjoyed and she recommended me for the position; she is friends with the graduate student who hired me and with whom I now work.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I love the CEEO work environment! There are many undergrad interns here, so even though I'm the only undergrad on my project, I'm surrounded by people creating, learning and having fun. (And there are Legos everywhere!) I enjoy working with my supervisors; they're kind, intelligent, and helpful. Access to the Makerspace is a great perk. The engineering education research and work done here is fascinating and even groundbreaking, which is very exciting to be around.

What do you find challenging?

I am part of a team that consists of two professors and one PhD student. Both professors operate remotely, although one comes in roughly every other week, and the graduate student is not usually in every day. Not having collaborators around me on a regular basis is a challenge -- it's harder to get feedback and bounce decisions off of people (and motivate myself) if most communication is over email with delays.

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

Get on a project that will motivate and fulfill you. Since what you work on is determined by who hires you, talk to professors (your potential employers) ahead of time about what they would expect of you.

Tufts Medical Center; Center for Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health | research.tufts-nemc.org/cear4/Home.aspx  Eitan Scheinthal (Economics, 2016)  Research Assistant  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Paid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

The primary responsibilities as an intern at CEVR include conducting health economic research using data from published medical journals.

How did you find your internship?

The economics department sent out an email with the job posting.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The ability to work closely with well-accomplished superiors in an environment that has access to a surplus of health information provided me with an excellent opportunity to learn more about the field and conduct my own research projects. Moreover, the internship functioned as a program with plenty of lecturers delivering interesting talks.

What do you find challenging?

A steep learning curve exists if your prior knowledge about health economics is limited.

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

This internship has been, historically, reluctant to accept undergraduate students to the internship program.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I caught butterflies, fed butterflies, counted eggs, learned how to sex them, raised caterpillars, and took care of plants for the caterpillars/butterflies.

How did you find your internship?

Through my advisor, Dr. Frances Chew What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Being able to learn outside! I enjoyed learning ecological methods of research and learning about butterfly anatomy and metamorphosis.

What do you find challenging?

Sometimes when research only requires maintaining the specimens one is studying, even short hours every day seem tedious, but it is doable.

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

Read more about the organisms in advance! Email the professors you want to research with far in advance, probably early the semester before.

About the Organization Tufts University – Chew Lab Medford, MA Natalie Kerr and Dr. Frances Chew research the effects of butterfly wing condition on fecundity of butterflies, specifically Pieris rapae and Pieris oleracea.
