community, which was probably my favorite part; for example, she allowed me to attend hearings on immigration issues in the Senate and House anda Q&A with Bernie Sanders hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. The FirstGEN fellowship program connected me with a variety of professionals in D.C. who I otherwise would not have had access to (e.g., USCIS Ombudsman, Senior Advisor on Hispanic and Asian Affairs to Senator Harry Ried, Director at the Department of Education), many of whom became mentors for me. They gave valuable advice on pursuing careers in D.C., law, politics, and social justice and will definitely be able to help me navigate my future career path.

What do you find challenging?

Time management was critical, and often times challenging, as I was balancing multiple projects at once.

Because I was given so much independence, at times it was a bit isolating and lonely. The staff at CLINIC, however, are extremely friendly and diverse so that really wasn't a problem!

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

If you are a first generation college student, apply to the FirstGEN Fellowship Program (firstgenfellows.org). They placed me at CLINIC and on Fridays all of the fellows participated in a parallel advocacy training program where we made connections and learned from very important, AMAZING people in D.C. Applying was one of the best decisions I have ever made! If you're selected for the fellowship, you will be placed at CLINIC, NILC (National Immigration Law Center), LLCCUL (Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights Under Law), or AAJC (Asian Americans Advancing Justice). Even if you're not a first generation college student but are passionate about social justice, immigration, law, and/or politics, apply to CLINIC or to any of those organizations for an intensive, educational and eye-opening internship experience. If you intern in D.C., attend as many events and meet as many people as possible.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I get to work closely with the Marketing VP and collaborate with coworkers to create easy to access websites. I worked to make our site appear early on in google search lists. Daily, I work on the website via a web publishing app. Also, I make reports on all the sites for our traffic.

How did you find your internship?

My friend's father is the President and COO of the company. I met with him at church, then he called and offered me a job for the summer. The company is growing rapidly right now so I'm sure anyone interested would be more than welcome!

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I get to work closely with the executives. My office was between my boss and the CEO. I get to go to lunch with them fairly often and they are more than willing to share years of wisdom. Also, I get to collaborate with the marketing department and work with people on a daily basis.

What do you find challenging?

Initially, getting used to proper office conduct was challenging, but I got a lot of help from everyone on how to be a professional. Also, learning to work with other people and to get on the same page so we all have a good vision of what we want to get done. i.e. What the site should look like.

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

The best way to do it would be to contact me. You will have a better chance of getting the internship and I will get credit for referring you!

About the Organization Center for Discovery Los Alamitos, CA Center for Discovery has been providing residential treatment for women and teens for over 18 years.

At Center for Discovery, we provide residential treatment for women with eating disorders, teens with eating disorders, teens with mental health disorders, and teens with substance abuse issues. Each of our locations is dedicated solely to one of our specialized treatment programs. By keeping each location specialized to one of our treatment programs, we are able to provide the most effective and efficient treatment. All locations provide treatment for only a small number of residents at one time to maintain an intimate setting and a high staff to resident ratio. Treatment within a residential neighborhood allows our residents to feel more comfortable in a familiar surrounding and provides greater transferability and internalization of the treatment experience to life after treatment. We place a high priority on providing an environment where our clients feel like and are treated like people, never patients.

Charles River Analytics | www.cra.com  Anonymous (Computer Science, 2017)  Software Engineer  Full-time, 40 hours per week  Paid What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I was the software lead on a Kinect-based physical therapy desktop application. I participated in AgileSprint meetings as part of the development team and regularly gave demos to the team.





How did you find your internship?

I saw them at the Tufts Career Fair and then applied online.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I couldn't have imagined a better first software internship. The company culture is very friendly and supportive. I've learned a lot both from others and by the freedom I was given on my projects.

What do you find challenging?

The freedom I was given was empowering, but it could easily have become overwhelming. It was up to me to get a lot of things done and ask the right people the right questions. There was a lot of responsibility and, although not high stakes, at least some liability for doing a poor job. CRA is a relatively small company (~150 employees), so it’s not at all corporate, but not as intense as a startup.

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

Interns have to do a 15-minute presentation (or so) at the end of a program, so definitely prepare for that. This seems pretty typical for most software internships. Also, enjoy the work and not just the money.

Chicago Ideas Week | www.chicagoideas.com  Noa Rosen (International Relations, French, 2016)  Strategic Partnerships 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 Strategic Partnerships, the team that is responsible for fundraising and membership, which includes obtaining and maintaining relationships with large corporate sponsors, as well as reaching out to individuals about purchasing individual and corporate membership packages. Tasks involve a lot of email and some telephone outreach, setting up phone meetings, and keeping track of relationships with members past, present, and future. I completed several tasks for development, including researching the most cost-effective methods for gaining members and membership payments at events. I also created conversation starting questions for membership events and researched the viability of potential speakers for ThinkChicago, an initiative designed to bring young people in the tech field to Chicago.

How did you find your internship?

Word of mouth - my mother was familiar with the organization and also knew someone working there.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I most enjoy the freedom of this work environment and the care that is taken to make sure the interns have a positive experience. There are about 20 people on the CIW team, and I was given many opportunities to learn how a non-profit works by close interaction with several sub teams. I loved the exposure I got to so many ideas, entrepreneurs and professionals through the internship and CIW events. I went on site visits, to a meeting with Leo Burnett, and also to a couple of start-up incubators. It is a very friendly environment, and a member of the team always responded to my ideas or research.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging aspect was staying on task when given longer, data entry focused tasks. To overcome this I broke up these tasks over several days and made sure I wasn’t doing that one task all day long. Usually there were many people looking for help, so if I was stuck, I could break it up with other things. The other challenge I had was cold calling for membership; I had never done that before and talking to strangers on the phone was definitely out of my comfort zone. It was a valuable experience, and after doing several calls with a staff member I began to feel more comfortable.

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

Know what you’re good at and bring that to the team in whichever way you can. If you’re not sure which team you want to work for, be clear in expressing what you like to do, and make yourself useful to everyone. For example, I expressed that I loved writing and received tasks like drafting letters to members, generating tweets and helping plan membership events. Take any opportunity that comes your way even if it doesn’t pertain to you. I observed interviews for the Artist-in-Residence and learned about space design and architecture. Talk to everyone, ask questions, and as many events as you can!

Chicago Youth Shakespeare | www.chicagoyouthshakespeare.org  Maya Blackstone (Drama, Mass Communications and Media Studies, 2017)  Communications and Production Management 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 create new social media content for Chicago Youth Shakespeare's many social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I also work on finding grants for the program to apply for, and I am a correspondent between parents and the program. Finally, I help coordinate programs for the students and write original content for the website.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through a website called InternMatch.com. It’s a helpful resource that filters internships by geographical area, type, and areas of interest.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy when I get to work with the students who are doing the program. They come from all walks of life, and I enjoy getting to know them and learning about their lives, which are so different from my own.

What do you find challenging?

I find it most challenging to communicate effectively with my boss. She gives me quite a lot of responsibility, which is great, but sometimes it can backfire when she doesn’t like the work I do. It is very frustrating to start over on pieces of work that she doesn't like, but ultimately I have to because she is my boss.

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

One must be interested and invested in theater before they take this internship. I think it helped that I have a performance background because it gave me better insight into why the students were performing certain exercises. I would also say that it's important to directly communicate with the director of the internship when applying, because there were many different deadlines. For this position, there was a written application due before March 1 and two phone interviews after March 1.
