Have you ever wondered how to connect the dots between your interests, personality and skills? Engage in group activities and self-reflection for a few hours this Winter Term, and emerge with a framework that will move you toward intentional decision-making. We’ll discuss:
Your unique personality type
Decisions about your major
Activities at Middlebury
Internships and other relevant experiences
You’ll create a roadmap and a means to “unstick” yourself from the expectations heaped on you. This interactive 3-session series will provide you with the “life” tools and strategies for planning your next steps during your time here at Middlebury and beyond.
Ideal for first-years and sophomores. Must commit to attending all three sessions (Tuesdays Jan 9, 16, 23 from 4:30pm-6:00pm). PIZZA included!
As a Directorate of Operations Undergraduate Intern for the CIA, you will support the Directorate of Operations (DO) mission of collecting human intelligence on critical international developments. The DO is the covert arm of the CIA.
Working in the Washington, DC area, DO student interns perform duties typical of a Collection Management Officer or Staff Operations Officer, teaming with knowledgeable professionals to facilitate the collection and dissemination of foreign intelligence used by US national security, defense, and foreign policy officials and intelligence analysts.
Interns are generally freshmen at the time of application and are interested in pursuing a DO career upon graduation. Competitive applicants that apply early in the application process—as opposed to the final week—have a better chance of making it through the stringent security and medical processing that must be completed before entering on duty as a Directorate of Operations Undergraduate Intern the following summer. If you plan to study abroad or otherwise be outside of the United States in Summer 2018, we strongly recommend you apply no later than 31 January 2018.
