Event Review: CED Internship Panel

There was a lively crowd at the CED internship panel hosted by AIAS, Alpha Rho Chi and the Peer Advisors Thursday, Sept 15 th . Room 172 was packed, the snacks were plentiful and the panelists were enthusiastic. It was a welcome break from studying to think about the big picture of our careers.  Here are some of the lessons I took away from the evening: An internship can be whatever you want it to be, so think creatively about what you are looking for. At the same time, keep an open mind because an unexpected opportunity may turn out to be great. The following options presented by the panel are a good place to start exploring. AN INTERNSHIP CAN BE: ·        At a large or small design, real estate, development, consulting, etc. firm, ·        In a government department such as a planning commission or zoning board,          ·        With a non-profit organization, big or small, ·        In a department of a large institution such as the facilities division at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab
