We know some of you are starting to plan for summer (or spring) internships, so we are offering this session just for you! Learn strategies for finding or creating the best internship for you.
At this session, we will:
• Give you examples of past internships Midd students have done.
• Highlight top resources to use in the search process.
• Discuss strategies for creating your own experience.
• Provide an overview of CCI’s GRANT FUNDING available for unpaid summer internships.
• Help you with the process of narrowing down fields in which to pursue your internship.
Students seeking internships for the Spring semester or the long Winter break may also find it valuable to attend but please note that funding is only available for summer internships. This webinar will be recorded and sent to anyone who registers for the workshop (another session will be offered in January). Students may also drop into Quick Questions to see a Peer Career Advisor or make an appointment with a CCI advisor for help. We look forward to seeing you and answering all of your questions!
This is a unique chance to work closely with a Midd alum and learn more about the inner-workings of a courtroom and the justice system. This opportunity will expose you to assisting the Law Clerks and Law Interns with criminal and civil cases. You may be called upon to work on writing and research projects, as well as administrative tasks. Because of the current circumstances this opportunity will be all remote. The opportunity to be in-person in the court and chambers will not be available, which is different than years past. There are still opportunities for some observation as many things are going forward on zoom, but the opportunity for personal interaction with people in chambers will be reduced to practically nothing.
