Time4Coffee Podcast

Time4Coffee is a social enterprise — the centerpiece of which is a podcast — dedicated to helping college students, grad students and young professionals still looking for the right job in the right career, navigate a rapidly changing global job marketplace. 

As the Time4Coffee name implies, these in-depth ‘caffeinated career conversations’ and related blog posts, explore many of the same topics covered when people meet, in person, over a cup of coffee to ask for career advice. However, without personal connections and geographic proximity, most young people wouldn’t have entrée to meet these professionals in person. Therefore, Time4Coffee’s mission is to level the playing field so that no matter who you know (or don’t know) and no matter where you live, you can still have access to the same amazing career advice 24/7 just by pressing play.

Time4Coffee also aims to leverage social media platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram to generate meaningful engagement between young people and professionals, from the entry-level up to the C-suite, around the country and the world.

Planning for Resiliency: Cohort Summer Internship Program Addressing Climate-Driven Threats

Middlebury has partnered with Historic New England, a historic preservation organization headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, to offer a three PAID internships this summer working on an initiative called “The Planning for Resiliency Cohort” which will include a Design Intern, Ecology Intern, and GIS intern.  The cohort interns will complete an integrated project addressing climate-driven threats at four seventeenth-century museum properties in Newbury, Mass.
They are very interested in finding students with background in majors addressing design (HARC), GIS (Geography), and ecology (ES/Conservation Biology). Specifically, if you are a rising junior, this might be the perfect internship for you. The internship will include a stipend from CCI and housing in the Boston area with the other interns.
The application deadline is March 24th; don’t wait to apply!  Below are descriptions for each of the internships.
