Joelle Fundaro Randall, Assistant Career Center

JOELLE'S PICK: Children's Programming Internship at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum

What a fun place to intern at if you want to work with youth. The museum celebrates childhood and the joy of learning by providing an interactive hands-on environment that inspires learning and encourages self-directed exploration.

Chelsea Moore, Assistant Director

CHELSEA'S PICK: Sales Summer Internship at L'Oréal USA
APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 1st, 2019 

I found this job because I started searching Handshake for internships by location. I have many students who are excited about the prospect of living in a big city, so I searched for internships in NYC. This one is primarily in NYC, but there are also a few remote options as well. (Sidenote: did you know there are scholarships available for internships provided by some of the schools/colleges and also sometimes departments--Look into it for your school/college! It can help with an internship in a more expensive location).

I also chose this internship because it looks like an opportunity to take on challenging tasks. The job description says the interns will be able to own their own projects, which can be a great way to build skills over the summer. Plus, it sounds fun to work for a big consumer brand. It would be a great opportunity to see what it's like!

MARIELLA'S PICK: Gap Year: Community Health Fellowship at Project Horseshoe Farm
APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 24th, 2020 

I picked this posting because the mission of Project Horseshoe Farm (strengthening communities, improving the health and quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors, and preparing citizen service leaders for tomorrow's communities) resonates with me *and* because I know of Wolverines who participated in the past and reported having very positive experiences. If you are looking for opportunities to shadow and learn about psychiatry, nursing, social work, and family medicine, and to want get hands-on experience in the running of a community-oriented non-profit, you should check this one out.
