It may only be January, but already the pressure is on to find those resume-boosting summer job opportunities. These past two weeks, the focus was all on consulting and investment banking internships as the Career Development Center played host to reps from Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Bain and Co., McKinsey, and the Boston Consulting Group. But with resume deadlines for these positions past, this week appears to be centralizing on more service-minded internships, at least judging by the mighty influx of emails on the subject flooding the dorm chat lists.
So if you want to volunteer abroad, work with urban youth, or cure all diseases known to man while simultaneously kissing babies, then keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as these summer volunteer opportunities pop up, including, but by no means limited to:
- Be A Good Doctor – for all those eager premeds looking to lend a helping hand and gain some insight into the field of medicine and healthcare both here and abroad
- Volunteers in Latin America (VILA) – for those interested in promoting human rights and working with children in Quito, Ecuador
- Plus a multitude of other opportunities or applications for individual service fellowships on the HAAS Center website
Oh, and on a somewhat related note, for all you engineers out there, don’t forget to stop by the Opportunity Job Fair this Saturday, January 30 at the Alumni Center (10:30 am – 4:00 pm) for a look at some cool summer jobs and internships in your field.
