MiddView Internship Applications Now OPEN! Apply via the SEO

MiddView is Middlebury College’s fall new student orientation program and will include a five-day on campus orientation and three-day trips program.

MiddView Intern:  The MiddView Interns are integral members of our MiddView Steering Committee and serve as critical links between student leaders, staff, faculty, new students (first-years, transfers, and exchanges), families, and the Middlebury College community. They are ambassadors of the College and the faces and voices of MiddView. Key responsibilities include developing a vision and schedule for MiddView 2018, communicating with new students and their families, managing the MiddView website, social media, and other communications, planning and assisting with events, managing complex logistics, and training and supervising other student staff. These positions offer employment from March through September 2018. MiddView Interns are expected to work 4-8 hours per week during the academic year and then transition to 37.5 hours per week during the summer (with over-time virtually assured during the week of MiddView).

MiddView Trips Intern: MiddView Trips Interns serve as critical members of the College’s MiddView planning team. They help to design and coordinate all aspects of the MiddView trips; Middlebury’s three day, two-night off-campus adventure that explores Vermont’s cultural, community or outdoor landscapes, providing small-group connections amongst first-year students to ease their transition to college. There are three positions available. Each intern will work on one kind of trip topic: Wilderness trips, Vermont Explorations trips, or Community Engagement trips. All three interns should expect a lot of collaboration between trip types.

Century Foundation PAID summer internship

These opportunities sound amazing!  TCF likes to call themselves “the 100 year old policy start up”.

Internships vary each year but the research and writing you do help advance TCF’s work, so it really seems like they are intent on making it a meaningful experience.

Internships fall in three broad areas:

  1. Policy Research and Analysis
  2. Editorial and Communications
  3. Nonprofit Management

In the past, our policy research interns have covered topics as various as socio-economic diversity in public schools, the Affordable Care Act, public-private partnerships for building infrastructure, income disparity and U.S. policy in the Middle East.

On the editorial and communications side, interns have developed graphic design projects, built websites, digitally archived old TCF books, and edited the work of fellows and interns.

For nonprofit management, interns will help develop and implement a funding strategy for a particular policy area, or work on a business recovery plan.

Deadline is Tuesday, February 14 so act fast.  All details here: http://tcfinstitute.org/
