SI@Work 2007 Summer Internship Presentations Posted!
A common resource that I direct internship seekers to is the list of the past PEP Internships on the SI Career Services website. If you haven't checked this now sort-able list out, it basically tells you where most everyone that has had a PEP summer internship for the past few summers have gone, what they have done, and what they learned. Students who didn't get PEP credit for their internship also sometimes add their experiences. Fall and Winter SI 690 internships are also included in this listing.
If you are looking for an internship at UM, this is a GREAT resource as you can see what UM departments are already familiar with SI students and the PEP credit process. I always recommend contacting the SI student who did the internship to ask them about the experience and to find out who their supervisor/mentor was. If they aren't a second year student, you can always check the Student Alumni Network or the UM Online Directory to find their contact information.
What's new is that the Fall 07 SI@Work presentations (from all Summer 2007 PEP Internships) are now available for students to view through the SI Intranet. Once you login to the intranet, click on PEP Resources/SI@Work Presentations.
All students who get PEP credit for their summer internship are required to do a SI@Work presentation in the fall. In their presentation, they share information about what they did, what they learned, and how the experience reflects on their career goals and plans. The presentations are an easy and quick way to see if a particular organization or function might be right for you.
If you have questions, please let me know! - Kelly
