The new topics are:
- Environmental Science & Sustainability – There are many jobs in the environmental and sustainability fields beyond policy work. Within the private sector, there are opportunities in the timber industry, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation organizations. Within the government, there is work available at the local, state and federal levels that focus on forests, water, and wildlife.
- Neuroscience – The “Brain Sciences,” or neuroscience, encompass a wide range of career paths centralized in the research and medical professions, and now permeating across multiple new fields in recent years. Through studying the brain and the nervous system, those who choose a career in neuroscience seek to understand how neurons interact and how these interactions impact behavior. Neuroscience intersects psychology, science, medicine, and impacts the legal system, education, and even marketing. Clearly, neuroscience presents multiple pathways for you to consider.
- Law & Paralegal – The law profession encompasses a variety of career fields some of which require an advanced degree where others do not. Those interested in the field of law typically pursue careers as lawyers, paralegals/legal assistants, criminal justice (law enforcement, probation officers, and correction officers), social work/justice (family law, juvenile law, elder law and child protective services), public policy, federal government, protective services, detective services and more.
- Business Intelligence, Analytics & Data Science – Every time a customer interacts with a computerized system, whether at a Grocery Store, Online Store, or Social Media site, data is created and stored in a data solution system. Tools then convert this data into metrics (known as analytics) that assess consumer behavior. Analytic professionals interpret analytical data and utilize statistics, predictive modeling, and managerial strategies to drive business decisions. Analytics are used in nearly every industry. Marketing companies use analytics to measure and analyze performance of different initiatives, financial firms use analytics to analyze investments and forecast future scenarios, charter schools use analytical data to inform teaching practices, and major movie studios use analytics to project ticket sales.

You’re about to start a summer internship and you want to make the most of it. Check out this great article that highlights 10 things you can do to make the most our of your experience:
- Create a Positive First (and Ongoing) Impression: The endgame here is to gain a professional reference, obtain a letter of recommendation or blurb on LinkedIn and have a quality resume entry. You earn these through punctuality and presenting a professional appearance each day.Be careful what you wear. Yes, it’s summer. But before you leave the house, remember that you are not going to the beach or sunbathing on the campus quad. If you are not certain about the dress code, ask your boss or someone in HR.Keep your workspace clean and organized, and don’t be seen texting or using technology for personal purposes while on the clock. Updating your Facebook status can wait until you get home. (Also see Tip #8)
- Deliver: You want to make sure that you complete any assignments, whether easy or complex, by the deadlines. “The dog ate my homework” (or its digital version) will not resonate here.
- Don’t be High Maintenance: You obviously want to do a good job. Try to take notes on what is expected of you from the outset. When questions arise while you are performing a task, don’t ask your supervisor questions every two minutes. To the extent possible, “bank” your questions and move on to the next part. Then, before the deadline, present your questions in batch mode in order to be able to complete the assignment correctly

I recently learned about this opportunity and it looks good!
Democracy Summer is a project of the Jamie Raskin for Congress campaign that we hope will become a national model for investing resources in training a new generation of Democratic political activists, organizers and leaders.
In Democracy Summer 2017, 40 college and high school students will be selected as Fellows and trained to become superior political organizers for this critical period in American history. They will receive practical training in all of the key skills of democratic campaigning: political strategy, canvassing, phone-banking, fundraising, field strategy, issue development and messaging, social media, rally organizing, event planning, scheduling, and campaign management. They will also participate in readings and discussions with leading Democratic policy experts and key progressive leaders and organizers on subjects such as climate change, reproductive freedom, wealth inequality, tax policy, immigration and refugee policy, the Electoral College, redistricting and gerrymandering, the domestic budget and the military budget, U.S, foreign policy, civil rights, voting rights and the spread of voter suppression tactics.
Democracy Summer includes 2 six-week sessions (May 30-July 7; July 10-Aug 18). A cohort of 20-25 fellows per session will spend 35 weekly hours learning about, practicing, and participating in the theory and practice — the nuts and bolts — of Democratic politics. Fellows will be deployed for short periods in nearby progressive Democratic campaigns, honing their skills, building their understanding, and directly advancing Democratic success.
