About the Organization U.S. Department of Energy Washington, DC Recognizing that unbiased policy analysis will provide the best foundation for least cost, highest impact ways to transform our energy systems, Secretary Moniz launched the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis (EPSA) within the Department of Energy in August 2013. EPSA advises the Secretary and senior leadership in DOE on critical energy issues and policies through analysis of and recommendations on the range of energy subsectors – from fossil fuels and renewable resources to transmission and distribution to efficiency and end uses. EPSA synthesizes and analyzes information from and collaborates with the Department’s program offices and the national labs. It also works with stakeholders from industry and NGOs and our Congressional, state, local and tribal partners to develop a more comprehensive, integrated and analytically based understanding of energy systems, various jurisdictions, and impacts to its participants. To develop policy responses to these issues and prepare for others, EPSA has teams focused on several policy areas, including climate environment and efficiency, energy security, finance, incentives and program analysis, and state and local cooperation.

U.S. Department of State – Near Eastern Affairs Bureau | www.state.gov

• Eloise Harnett (International Relations, Arabic, 2016)

• Iraq Program 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 in the Near Eastern Affairs Bureau within the State Department in the Iraq Assignments Office.

The responsibilities of my office are to organize the advertising, hiring and tracking of all Foreign Service officers interested in working in Iraq, as well as those currently stationed in Iraq. My job includes creating profiles for all interested Foreign Service officers and tracking all information on the posts they are planning to pursue. Once all of this information is organized, I send various documents to our embassies and consulates in Iraq. The staff in Iraq then communicate with me about who they are interested in hiring, and I send out these selection notices.

How did you find your internship?

I found it on state.gov, listed with all of the summer internships.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

Working at the State Department gives you access to incredible events, lectures and daily opportunities to learn. I loved being able to attend events and meet people outside of my office.

What do you find challenging?

Due to the bureaucracy of such a large organization, I was often frustrated that I wasn't able to take initiative on certain projects.

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

Start looking early! The State Department internship program has an incredibly early application process. The application isn't difficult; just try to get it done early.

About the Organization U.S. Department of State – Near Eastern Affairs Bureau Washington, DC The Department's mission is to shape and sustain a peaceful, prosperous, just, and democratic world and foster conditions for stability and progress for the benefit of the American people and people everywhere.

U.S. Department of State (Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration) | www.state.gov/j/prm/index.htm  Katie Saviano (International Relations, Arabic, 2017)  Junior Program Officer  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I am responsible for updating the USRAP Manual as needed; gathering, consolidating, and analyzing data on completed USCIS circuit rides; and analyzing and drafting standardized policy for expedite procedure.

I also attend meetings and conferences for my office and complete write-ups for the bureau. I work closely with the overseas program officers in my office and have worked on significant projects for the MENA and East Asia regions.

How did you find your internship?

I heard about the State Department Student Internship Program from another Tufts student. For summer internships, the application deadline is in mid-October.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

There was an expectation that I would be well-versed on current affairs, humanitarian aid and development, refugee law, and migration policy. During my first week, my only project was to become knowledgeable. I spent my days interviewing employees to learn about their portfolios, attending meetings, reading reports, and asking questions. This expectation was a theme throughout my internship. I loved that there was such a focus on learning; not only was I expected to understand and analyze my bureau’s programs, I was also encouraged to go to any talk or event at the State Department that interested me. As a result, I feel that it was truly an opportunity to learn and be engaged.

What do you find challenging?

The expectation level is extremely high, and it took a few weeks to become accustomed to my supervisor’s standards. However, it was extremely rewarding to know that I produced high quality work.

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

The deadline is in mid-October and you are notified of the decision in mid-December. When you put down your preferences for bureaus, spend time on your statement of interest, as this is a major component of your application and it is read seriously. While at State, conduct as many informational interviews as possible! There is an incredible opportunity to speak to people with whom you share interests. You have an high level of access, and employees will be very candid with you regarding their careers, portfolios, and opinions on current events. After a few weeks, I started cold-emailing people who had portfolios I was interested in (the Desk Officer for Tunisia, for example), and every single person I emailed got back to me. I also recommend meeting as many of the interns at State as possible -these are people who share similar interests and are probably a few years older (many State interns are grad students) and thus, will have their own advice to offer. Plus, networking with other students is one of the best types of networking, as these people could be your colleagues in the future.

U.S. Department of State, U.S. Mission to the EU | http://useu.usmission.gov  Allison Aaronson (International Relations, 2017)  Public Affairs Intern  Full-time, 45-50 hours per week;

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

I proposed, wrote, edited, and promoted a weeklong blog series on the transatlantic trade relationship;

conducted research on the mission’s social media community; assisted with special projects, including the visit of Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and the 10th Round of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) Negotiations; compiled a summary of relevant news stories to keep the Ambassador and other staff updated on current events in the EU and member states; organized a breakfast briefing series with EU Interns; coordinated logistics, managed protocol, assisted with social media, and performed various tasks for mission events involving policymakers, press, and Think Tanks.

How did you find your internship? Former supervisor referral What do you enjoy most about your internship?

My position gave me access to high-level events and inspiring connections that helped me learn about the world and myself. I learned so much from my many colleagues (there are over 800 U.S. staff at USEU, U.S. Embassy to Belgium, and U.S. Mission to NATO) as well as the people I met through events. I am amazed by how many busy and important people took time to mentor me, and I gained a lot of confidence in networking and communication skills.

What do you find challenging?

This is an obvious one, but the bureaucracy of the U.S. government can feel crippling to passion and drive. Things move slowly, everything must be cleared before taking action, and international time differences are difficult to manage. My only other complaint is that there was negligible support for interns in terms of housing, transportation, building community, and other challenges of moving to a new country. In the end, I felt empowered that I was able to figure it out on my own while balancing a demanding job. I worked overtime a fair amount, but that was my decision as I wanted to be included in as many projects as possible. I could have maintained normal working hours if I had prioritized it.

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

If you want to work for the State Dept., you need to apply early; the deadline is in November or December. Most positions require U.S. citizenship. Given the volume of applications, any way you can connect with someone within a particular mission or embassy beforehand will drastically improve your chances. In addition, the security clearance process is rather long and invasive, and it's not unheard of for interns to be denied clearance and left stranded for summer plans. That being said, it's an incredible opportunity to live/work abroad, get an insider's view on the U.S., and make connections (that's the big one). I think this internship would be really hard if it’s your first time living independently abroad, but it’s a good follow-up to study abroad. Also, most other interns were in the process of getting/had already obtained MA or JD degrees, so be realistic about which positions you apply to (e.g., legal interns are in law school). If you are thinking about joining the Foreign Service, I definitely recommend the internship, as it’s important to get a sense of the unique foreign service lifestyle.

U.S. Department of State, Ukrainian Embassy | http://ukraine.usembassy.gov  Christopher Jarmas (International Relations, Russian & Eastern European Area Studies, 2016)  Political Section Intern  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

Daily tasks can vary greatly. I typically draft the Political Section's daily update on political, economic, and security developments in Ukraine. I have researched, written, and released diplomatic cables, drafted memos, and assisted visiting delegations.

How did you find your internship?

U.S. Department of State Careers webpage, and I previously interned at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Russia.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I most enjoyed participating in meetings with high ranking officials, including Moldova's ambassador to Ukraine and officers at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. When Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland visited Kyiv in July, I served as a notetaker in her meeting with Kyiv mayor and former heavyweight champion Vitaly Klitschko.

What do you find challenging?

Given the high-intensity atmosphere and the rapidly developing political, economic, and security situation in Ukraine, Embassy officers often need projects turned around extremely quickly.

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

Take advantage of your time at the post, whether through travel, taking on challenging projects, or making a ton of awesome connections. If you just go to get a line on your resume, that's all you'll get out of it. Apply early; application deadlines are in October due to necessary security clearances.

About the Organization U.S. Department of State, Ukrainian Embassy Kyiv, Ukraine As the lead U.S. foreign affairs agency, the U.S. Department of State represents the United States at more than 270 diplomatic locations around the world, including embassies, consulates, and missions to international organizations.

UGE International | www.ugei.com  Julia Malleck (International Relations, English, 2016)  Business Development Intern  Full-time, 45 hours per week  Unpaid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I worked on finding potential Partners for the company in Asia, more specifically in South East Asia (e.g., Philippines, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Micronesia). I also helped re-write and edit the material on the website about the Partners program. Along with the sales team, I helped put together a book of guidelines to standardize practices and interactions across the company and streamline our business model. Besides this, I did research.

How did you find your internship?

I found the internship through a friend. Her sister interned in the company's Beijing office and enjoyed her internship. My friend thought I might be interested as well.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?
