INTERNSHIP HELPFUL HINTS
Dr. Donna Budani
138 Munroe Hall
- Send an email to me for initial appointments.
- If you want to do an internship for the summer, begin to search and identify opportunities no later that October 31 st.
- There are several strategies you can use to identify internships. For example, you can access the internship sites identified on this web site or a particular opportunity featured on the bulletin board located on the first floor of Munroe Hall. Better still, you might want to do an Internet search and bring your most interesting potential internships to a meeting with me.
- I can assist you to clarify your goals and to draw up some criteria for the type of internship that suits you best. Also, I can help identify internships for you and I can write recommendations letters for you (you should ask other faculty you are acquainted with and who really know you). I can act as a broker between you and the internship program in which you are interested.
- Please be aware that listings for internships are also potential full-time jobs for seniors or summer jobs for juniors.
- You should prepare a personal statement that addresses the following: 1). the contribution of the internship to your over-all education and specifically to anthropology; 2). your qualifications-- your practical skills and the skills you have developed as a result of your studies in anthropology. Obviously, you want to make yourself a highly desirable candidate. 3). how does the internship prepare you for the next step or stage in your life? Answer the question: “As a result of this internship I will have acquired………………………………… and have become…………………………….”
