Chinese Progressive Association | cpaboston.org  Betty Fong (American Studies, Urban Studies, Asian American Studies, 2017)  Community Stabilization 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 support CPA's Community Stabilization work, which includes organizing to support the Just Cause Eviction Law to protect tenants from unfair evictions, holding our first Block Party to connect tenants in row houses to those in subsidized housing, and building the structure of the Chinatown Land Trust and its relationship to the community.

How did you find your internship?

I have been volunteering with CPA since I was a first-year undergraduate. I attended rallies, prepared for community events, and learned more about stabilization campaigns. Interning at CPA this summer has given me the opportunity to delve into CPA's organizing model, day-to-day work, and dynamics with the community.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I most enjoy my daily interactions with Chinatown residents, workers, elders, youth, etc. We have dropin services for community members, so I am always meeting and talking to someone new. The people of Chinatown have diverse experiences and personalities.

What do you find challenging?

I am challenged by the multi-tasking I do during especially busy weeks, campaigns, and events. During a typical week, I may be preparing materials for a tenants' rights workshop, creating a flyer to raise awareness about our Workers' Center, or attending a youth event on our Library Campaign. My challenge is to connect all these work areas as part of CPA's larger organizing model.

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

CPA is a grassroots, community-based organization that works closely with local residents and workers, activists, and stakeholders. Figure out how you want to tap into CPA's work, whether it’s meeting with members, providing service, doing research on the Land Trust, or working with youth. The most important part is having the passion to organize!

CISCRP (Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation) | www.ciscrp.org

• Colin Burnett (Biopsychology, Drama, 2016)

• Communicating Trial Results Intern

• Part-time, 32 hours per week

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

I am part of the "Communicating Trial Results" program dedicated to improving transparency between the sponsors of clinical trials and the individuals who participate in the studies by translating scientific results from clinical trials into lay-language summaries.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through a listing on the Jumbo Jobs website.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

At CISCRP, I get to see the behind-the-scenes work put into clinical trials. Beyond the medical advancements these studies can make, I have found it important to understand the procedures in place that make these discoveries possible.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging aspect of this internship is containing my interest in the science of the clinical research. Sometimes, understanding surface level information on a study cannot satisfy my desire to see the research put into a trial!

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

I recommend that students who have a strong passion for both scientific work and health communications understand the two-fold initiative of the organization: raising awareness and improving transparency of clinical research, i.e. it's not all about the science.

About the Organization CISCRP (Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation) Boston, MA The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) is a first-of-its-kind nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and informing the public, patients, medical/research communities, the media, and policy makers about clinical research and the role each party plays in the process.

City of Evanston Economic Development Commission | www.evanstonedge.com

• Lydia Collins (Interdisciplinary Studies, Economics, Portuguese, 2017)

• Development Intern

• Part-time, 24 hours per week

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

As an intern I have a main project, creating an "Evanston Guide to Parklets," and I also help out with other things in the office. A parklet is the term used to describe the space in an on-street parking spot that is converted into a "mini-park". In creating this guide, I interviewed 14 professionals around Chicago who are involved in the design, implementation, and policy of parklets and general tactical urbanism. Outside of creating the guide, I do business interviews to gauge how local businesses are doing, gather information on local businesses to update databases, and sit in on meetings with people that come through our office.

How did you find your internship?

I sent my resume to a couple of people at the City of Evanston who work in departments I was interested in. One of them reached out to me and it was a good fit!

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I love that I have freedom to put my all into the guide. I was given a desk and a computer and then the rest was up to me. I am able to structure my time to include interviews which get me out of the office and all around the Chicago area. I really enjoy speaking to professionals in the urban design/development field. I also live a mile away, which makes it possible to walk and bike to work, as well as go home for lunch everyday.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging thing is getting used to sitting in front of a computer for eight hours a day! I adapted to this by walking to work, as well as scheduling interviews with people outside of the office.

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

Create a big schedule for yourself and get it approved by your boss early on. That way you can form your internship into something that best suits your interests. Interview as many people as possible in order to gain more insight into the field. Constantly volunteer to do things and try to sit in on as many meetings as possible. Go to ribbon cuttings!

I perform daily tasks for the Mayor of Little Rock, such as writing memos, research, and running general errands. In addition, I attend daily meetings on a variety on topics that are seen as important to the city government.

How did you find your internship?

I was referred to the program by a family member.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

What I enjoy the most about my internship is the number of officials (local, state and national) from a variety of agencies (the private and public sectors) that I meet and interact with on a daily basis.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging part of my internship is the amount of information I have to sort and research for the Mayor.

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

A piece of advice for someone doing an internship similar to mine would be to utilize this opportunity to see how government works and build connections to many officials in the public sector.

The Clorox Company | www.thecloroxcompany.com

• Sarah Vivinetto (Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, 2016)

• Packaging Development Intern

• Full-time, 40 hours per week

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

At the beginning of the summer, each intern is given one project with one mentor. You work exclusively on this project for the entire summer. Each project involves a different product and set of challenges, but your mentor helps you find useful resources and guides you in the right direction.

How did you find your internship?Society of Women Engineers National Conference

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I loved how the full-time employees never told you what to do. They wanted each intern to truly discover his/her own methods and ideas. This gave me a real opportunity to think outside the box and create my own test methods, project schedule, and daily tasks.

What do you find challenging?

At first, it was challenging to work in a field that I knew nothing about (packaging). However, throughout the summer, I realized this was not a real issue. Clorox wanted the interns to conduct scientific problem solving, which is what engineers do every day!

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

Be open to doing work that is outside your comfort zone (or what you learn in school). Also, don't be afraid to ask for help.
