CHERE plans to employ college-age interns to support the Center’s work and develop leadership skills.
Internships are often the beginning of successful careers for students. Internships do more than just look good on a resume. Under David Johnston’s mentoring experience with many interns over his career, students can explore a career path that is of interest, and begin to develop a network of professional and personal contacts; develop the skills employers are seeking; and build confidence, motivation and professional work habits.
An internship at CHERE will provide opportunities to gain hands-on, front-line experience in researching and responding to higher education’s most pressing issues, working with experienced professionals in the field and contributing to shaping critical public policy decision-making.
Students currently attending college in Connecticut, with an interest in a CHERE internship for the Fall 2013 semester, should send a resume and cover letter, including references, to David Johnston, Director of CHERE, at educationRwe@gmail.com
Applicants should highlight any academic work that specifically relates to the mission and objectives of the Center for Higher Education Retention Excellence.
