Job at CSIS in DC using Chinese skills

This came across my desk, referred by a Midd faculty member.  Get in touch and I can tell you more if interested.

Program Manager & Research Associate – China Power Project.  The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a non-profit, bipartisan public policy organization established in 1962 to provide strategic insights and practical policy solutions to decision makers concerned with global security and prosperity. Over the years, it has grown to be one of the largest organizations of its kind, with a staff of some 200 employees, including more than 120 analysts working to address the changing dynamics of international security across the globe.

The primary purpose of this position is to provide substantive, administrative, and logistical support to the Director of the China Power Project. The RA/PC is responsible for taking the lead in all program components, including: managing administrative and logistical tasks; assisting with program development; contributing to the program’s research agenda; and providing budgetary support.

Goodbye MOJO, Hello Handshake!

Complete your profile and start exploring!

The CCI is excited to announce the launch of Handshake, a brand new platform for Middlebury College students. Handshake is replacing MOJO and offers more job and internship opportunities, a broader range of employers, and more fields. In Handshake you can:

  • Find internship and employment opportunities based on your career interests and goals.
  • Discover when employers come to campus for informational sessions and/or interviews.
  • Connect with alumni and employers.
  • Learn about events and programming in your field of interest.
  • Schedule an advising appointment.

How do I access Handshake?
Visit middlebury.joinhandshake.com and login with your Middlebury ID and password. You already have an account – now you just need to activate it.

Note: for alumni who graduated on or before May 2016, click “sign up for an Account” on the bottom left.

What should I do first?
Completing your profile
in Handshake is more important than ever! Because Handshake is customized for your preferences, an incomplete profile means an incomplete system. It means you won’t receive tailored recommendations for opportunities, events, or employers. The CCI has migrated some of your basic information (name, graduation year, major, etc.) but you want to make sure to complete your profile, including your career interests

What do I do if some of my profile information is incorrect?
Much of your information is brought over from the Registrar’s Office. Therefore, if anything is incorrect (i.e. major, graduation date, etc.), we recommend contacting them directly at registrar@middlebury.edu

Handshake is easy-to-use and even has a mobile app. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Technology Coordinator, Susan Sheets, at ssheets@middlebury.edu.
