Refugees International Fall internship

An alum reached out to me to share: “I’m writing because my organization is offering virtual internships for the fall. While they are unpaid, I can guarantee that they will be a hands-on learning experience where people can boast about concrete products they’ve produced by the end. 

I work on the communications team, and we are looking for a student interested in refugee issues, creative, sharp writer, and has graphic design or video editing skills. I’d be happy to speak with any students who are interested.”

Let me know if you’d like a referral to the Midd grad.
