What You Should (and Shouldn’t) Do When You’re Waiting to Hear Back About a Job/Internship

As you are no doubt anxiously waiting to hear about summer internships so you can complete your summer funding applications (read more about CCI’s Summer Internship Funding Applications – remember the deadline is April 14th) Consider checking out this helpful Muse article by Sara McCord.

You know that you’re capable of being a top-tier applicant (that’s why you’re here!). You’re the type to take your career ambitions into your own hands—build your network, do your research, rock the interview, and write an awesome thank you note.

But then it’s the hiring manager’s turn, and you have to shift gears from proactive to patient. Isn’t there anything you can do?

The short answer is, making the switch from “full steam ahead” to “wait and see” mode is the most important step (but more on that later). Read the full article here.

Announcing 2019 Fall PAID Research Internship Opportunities for Undergraduate STEM Students

SULI Program Overview

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students and recent graduates to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.

The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories/facilities.

Applications for the SULI program are solicited annually for three separate internship terms. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August) or 16 weeks in duration for the Fall (August through December) and Spring (January through May) Terms. Each DOE laboratory/facility offers different research opportunities; not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.

Learn how to apply. Application deadline 3/29 at 5:00 pm ET.

Oratory Now 2019 Parker Merrill Speech Competition

The Parker Merrill Speech Competition was founded, and in part funded, by Middlebury’s first professor, Frederick Hall. When Hall was hired in 1806 he was immediately granted a two-year leave to study in Europe. While there, he was befriended by Daniel Parker, a wealthy American living in Paris, and when Hall fell ill, Parker lent him $180 to tide him over. As David Stameshkin writes in The Town’s College: Middlebury College 1800-1915, “When Hall tried to repay him, Parker refused to accept the money, saying that he liked to patronize the sciences. Hall decided to give the sum (along with $120 of his own money) to Middlebury College as a prize for undergraduates who excelled in public speaking.”

The tradition continues in 2019! This year’s prompt:
ADVOCATE! Rally our support for a cause that really matters.
