If you have an interest in sustainability or business (or both!) and are looking for an internship for next school year, then Manomet’s U360 program might just be the opportunity you’ve been seeking!
Learn all about this experiential education and professional development program from the Program Manager and past U360 students during this virtual info session. We’ll be meeting over Zoom and all you need is the URL to attend this event from wherever you are (but please register in advance).
U360 is designed to Increase students’ knowledge of environmental issues, practical sustainability, and business management, and prepare them for their future careers. The two-semester internship is 8-10 hours per week; is entirely virtual (and always has been), so students participate from their campuses; and up to 6 students are accepted from each of the four New England states every year.
The U360 internship incorporates applied science, business, and sustainability workshops; career skills training; sustainability assessments of small businesses; and a Capstone project. Specifically, students spend the majority of the program interviewing up to 25 small businesses each about their current practices, and the internship ends with each student creating a Sustainability Action Plan for one business they interviewed and presenting it to a panel of business leaders in a final Capstone Competition. U360 focuses on the skills that employers most seek—communication, teamwork, professionalism, creative problem-solving, and strategic thinking—while giving students a unique professional experience that differentiates them from their peers when entering the workforce and helps them build confidence, develop a professional network, and gain a vast understanding of business operations.

In order to support the career advancement of our most recent graduates during this time of economic recession, the Center for Careers and Internships has negotiated extended access to LinkedIn Learning through the summer months for our newest graduates (2019.5 and 2020 grads). Typically access is suspended upon graduation.
LinkedIn Learning is a fabulous video-based online instruction resource that is normally only available to academic year students, faculty, and staff. You can learn new skills to help at work or home by watching short, 2 to 3-minute videos or by working through an entire course.
This isn’t only about technology. Yes, there are courses on just about every piece of software you can think of, but there are also “soft skill” topics such as interviewing techniques, personal branding, productivity for remote work, executive presence on video calls, project management, and more. If you want to develop your creative side, there are courses for that as well, including photography, music, and animation.
If you wish to have free access to LinkedIn Learning during the summer months, please complete this form by Thursday, June 25th. We will send further instructions once your access is re-activated.
