CCPA Internship Series: Public Health Internship with Justice for Girls Coalition of Washington, Summer Internships with Intention: Tips for Your Search

By Carolena Muno ’23 Funding Source:  Primary Care Pre-Medical Internship Fund As pinwheel day approaches at Haverford, students begin to feel an increasing pressure to secure an internship or job for the summer. For many, myself included, the stress to land any job or opportunity can often force students into applying for positions that are not as helpful or engaging as they have hoped. My solution? Plan your own internship by getting specific about your interests, time frame, and goals. Step 1: Plan out your intentions, but stay open. It is easy to become overwhelmed with different ideas for opportunities in the summer. To prevent this, I found it helpful to create a guiding list of every path or opportunity I was interested in pursuing. As a pre-health student, these opportunities included conducting lab research, shadowing a doctor, or working with a public health organization. In addition, I also took the time to consider what my intentions for the summer were. What did I want to learn, who did I want to connect to, and what communities did I want to serve? After I created my list and intentions, I began to consider specific organizations that I could reach out to. To find these organizations I used a large variety of resources– I asked family, friends, professors, and advisors if they knew of any organizations that might fit into my interests. In addition, I used websites like Handshake and Indeed to cast a broader net. This helped me find a variety of potential opportunities that I could start looking into further. As a result of COVID restrictions, which were...

CCPA Internship Series 2020: Whitehead – Valerie Wilson Travel

CCPA Internship Series 2020: Whitehead – Valerie Wilson Travel

By Sean Mowatt-Larssen ’22 Funding Source: Whitehead Internship Program When I first received my offer from Valerie Wilson Travel, I was originally planning on being an Accounting intern, living and working in NYC. Little did I know that not only would I be doing the internship from my living room in Houston, but also that my position would change to Marketing. As an English major with a passion for writing, I was thrilled! Although I would not be able to learn new Accounting skills, I know that any opportunity to explore where my passions lie is vital for eventually being able to choose a career that I love. Going back a few months and thinking about the work I completed to land an internship, I have a couple of quick tips for future Whitehead applicants, or for any internship seekers, on how to be prepared and confident. Through the Sophomore Resume Initiative, I was able to receive amazing guidance from the CCPA on my resume, which helped me to put the right foot forward early. Seniors, juniors, and even other sophomores shared recommendations for resume editing as well. Before actually getting started on writing any applications, think about how you can portray yourself to leave the reader wanting to talk to you more, then begin to outline your own journey, passions, and goals for the summer. In order to feel confident in an interview, research the prospective company’s websites and profiles and think about how their mission connects to the schoolwork that you enjoy so that you are able to display genuine interest. From the first minute of my...

The CCPA Sophomore Resume Initiative: Class of 2023

The CCPA Sophomore Resume Initiative: Class of 2023

The CCPA wants 100% of the Class of 2023 to have a reviewed resume by the end of their Sophomore year, and we are launching the Sophomore Resume Initiative to get it done! Why is this important? We want to ensure all Haverford Sophomores have: a resume ready for quick deadlines or turnaround. a handy document to show alumni or other contacts for networking purposes. feedback to help show students how to translate skills developed from on-campus experiences (clubs, organizations, on-campus jobs) to the outside world. professional eyes to help identify “career readiness” skills our student have already developed, and target skills to consider building through Externships, Internships, and other professional development experiences. a document where formatting/layout is already reviewed, making updates easier for junior & senior year. Even if you had your resume reviewed during your first year at Haverford, we’d still like to take a quick look, especially now that your intended major may be clearer. It’s also worthwhile to include your Summer 2020 experience. It’s EASY to participate! Review and utilize our resume tips and examples. Upload your resume to the Sophomore Resume Initiative form. Prefer to have your resume reviewed in-person? Bring your resume to Drop-in hours! Resumes will be reviewed on a rolling basis, prioritizing students with immediate deadlines. If you did not identify an upcoming deadline, you will have a response and detailed review in 3-4 weeks. Students will be sent an email with comments directly from your reviewer. How it Works The Sophomore Resume Initiative is a campus-wide effort, and we’ve partnered with over 30 members across campus who will be trained...
