This summer, Sophie will be a research assistant with DAAD Germany in Münster, Germany, where she’ll be modeling carbon sequestration in aquatic habitats.
I’m excited about this opportunity because past jobs and classes have all pointed me in the direction of modeling environmental processes, so I finally get the chance to do specifically that. I hope to learn if something like this is really what I want to do, as well as strengthen my knowledge base in this subject area. Plus, the internship being in Germany is really, really exciting. I’ve never been and I feel incredibly lucky to have this opportunity.
I think my advice would be that a job or internship search is way more successful when you get help. I always have multiple people read my resumes, CVs, cover letters, etc. Whether that be family members, friends, faculty, or (of course) the Career Center. For this internship specifically, I had a lot of guidance from the Career Center and I’m extremely thankful.
