Doug Fischer, Peer Advisor
Doug’s pick: Intelligence Analyst – Macomb County
Job ID: 21093
I don’t know about you, but I have always enjoyed detective movies and TV shows. So much so that I even considered making a career out of it. If you’re like me, this intelligence analyst position will undoubtedly interest you. This position offers you the chance to detect criminal organizations, take down domestic and international terrorists, track narcotics and smugglers, and create new intelligence products, theories, and systems. It offers health, dental, vision, and retirement plans, and a very respectable salary.
Geni Harclerode, Asst. Director of Experiential Learning and Employer Development
Geni’s Pick: Production Intern – Ann Arbor Summer Festival
Job ID: 21000
Some students start their internship search with a pretty good idea of what they want to do this summer. But for other students, the where is the most important factor in landing a great experience during the break. Using the “Advanced Search” option is a perfect way to help narrow your search by geographic preferences. And, if you are planning on sticking around Ann Arbor this summer, why not make the most of it and apply to the Production Intern position with Ann Arbor Summer Festival – one of the many cool local opportunities that comes up with a search by “City”! Over 100 events comprise the Festival and you could play a part in making everything from live music performances to street art demonstrations go off without a hitch. The positions calls for someone who is enthusiastic and willing to jump in wherever is needed, especially during the weeks of the event.
Lynne Sebille-White, Sr. Asst. Director, Employer Relations
Lynne’s pick: External Relations Intern – National Children’s Museum
Job ID: 20700
I see a number of students who are involved in philanthropic activities within UM student organizations. Many express an interest in learning more about fundraising, grant writing, and event planning. When I ran across a posting for an External Relations Intern at the National Children’s Museum (NCM) in Washington, D.C., it struck a chord. This is a unique opportunity to work with the Director of Institutional Giving and the VP for External Relations for a newly created museum slated to open in 2013. This intern will assist with prospective donor research, help plan events, write at least one grant proposal and be exposed to strategic planning. Check it out soon as applications are due Dec. 16.
