Handshake recently published the article “The right way to read an entry-level job description”. Click here to read the complete article including tips on how to read the required qualifications section.
The Student Code of Conduct survey establishes the guidelines by which you may access and apply to opportunities posted in Handshake. Please complete this three-question survey as soon as possible to show that you commit to internship and job search ethics. To take the survey, log in to Handshake and click Career Center > Surveys.
- MISREPRESENTATION: I will represent myself accurately in all application processes (resumes, cover letters, interviews, program applications). Examples of misrepresentation may also include GPA inflation, exaggerated job responsibilities, citizenship/visa status, or overstated foreign language competency.
- SCHEDULED INTERVIEWS: I will arrive 10 minutes prior to all scheduled on-campus interviews. If I need to cancel a scheduled interview, I will notify my career center at least two business days prior to the scheduled on-campus interview. Late cancellations, no shows, and tardiness may forfeit my on-campus recruiting privileges.
- OFFERS: After I accept an internship or job offer, I agree to immediately withdraw all pending applications and cancel all scheduled interviews (on- and off-campus). I will notify my career center that I have accepted an offer.
You must complete this survey in order to utilize many Handshake features including scheduling appointments or interviews, and applying for opportunities.
Yes, it’s a little early to be thinking about Winter Term, but this looks like a great opportunity!
Middlebury Economics Professor Obie Porteous has funding to take 2 Middlebury student research interns with him on a research trip to Cameroon in Winter Term 2023. The research will be focused on Cameroon’s agricultural sector and involve qualitative interviews with farmers, agricultural traders, government officials, and other key stakeholders as well as agricultural market surveys. The research will contribute to an ongoing project on agricultural trade and adaptation to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa more broadly as well as potential future projects focused on Cameroon. Student roles may include identifying/scheduling interviewees, question preparation, note taking, logistical arrangements, data entry, as well as conducting some interviews and market surveys independently.

I thought this excellent article was pretty informative and educational. As they say:
“This article outlines considerations for readers deciding whether to get a US law degree, explains how it might help them have a positive impact, and describes the law school experience. It is based on public resources about law school and careers in law and policy, as well as the experiences of people who have recently attended or considered attending law school. Consider this post a series of “best guesses” about how to approach the decision about whether to attend law school, rather than a definitive guide or empirical study.”
