  1. Hey all, just joined the site and I'm not sure if this topic is covered elsewhere. Anyway, here's the deal: I have anxiety and depression, usually have it well-handled with therapy and meds. But now that I'm in the waiting zone for internship to start in the fall, I've had a pretty bad flare up. I'm actively working on it, getting the right treatment and adjusting my meds, but I can't shake this lingering fear that I'm going to crash and burn at internship. I'm most concerned about having to move away from my husband and entire social network. Is anyone else struggling with this? How are you coping? Words of encouragement?
  2. Hello everyone! I'm new here :) I signed up to check if there's anyone out there who applied for the 2018 NATO internship program. I applied in May and still haven't heard back. I hold a Master degree form LSE in London, and multiple internship experiences with the UN in NYC and with the European Commission in Brussels (Blue Book Traineeship). I'm now interning at OSCE Mission in Kosovo, in Pristina, and I will be here for the next 6 months. NATO recruiterds dn't know I am in Kosovo, because at the time of the application I didn't have the internship offer yet. I have close friends interning at NATO at the moment, and they told me the recruitment process is often slow, so I should not worry yet. Also, I haven't received any refusal email yet. Anyone out there still waiting? And what are the chances I will get it? Thanks! Cheers, Isma
  3. I am Anita Kumar and I am a second year Neuropsychology Master student in UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain) in Belgium. Next year, after I graduate from my Masters, I am going to pursue my education by doing internships within a certificate year at UCL. This means that I will be a student under the insurance of my university. I want to develop my skills in English, therefore I am interested to do an internship or a pracitucm placement in clinical Neuropsychology with adults or older adults. Would an internship for an international student be possible with a master degree? If so, where should I look for further information to apply ? Thank you for your help. Anita KUMAR
  4. I applied to the program for the international round. This is my second time applying and I know the odds are low. I can't help but getting anxious about this since I have not received any follow-up yet which I am afraid that it is likely that I will just receive a rejection email in early march.... Has anyone received a request for interview? Thanks!
  5. Hello everyone. I am new to GradCafe as I will be an upcoming graduate student in the Fall 2019. I got into a summer research internship this summer, and I want to make the most out of it. I will be working with two students. They sent me a thesis and a few papers to read about their work, motivation, and experiment. What is the best and most effective way to read papers? In undergrad, I feel as if it is very different. How do you guys analyze papers/thesis? What should I be looking for? What software do you use to sort/cite what you read online? Any other tips for a newbie? Thank you!
  6. I am starting an internship program soon that prepares me to be an SLPA. It’ll be my first time doing real hands on work within the field. I will be doing it at a pediatric therapy clinic and while I’m excited, I am also very nervous as I know I will be planning sessions, writing SOAP notes, collecting data, etc. It’ll be my first time working with clients and I’m worried I won’t know what the heck I’m doing. I’ve never planned therapy before or managed a caseload and every child is so different. Any tips would be much appreciated!
  7. I used to be a Research Intern and I'm not sure if that's worth putting on a CV for a PhD application. Thoughts? Also, are the job titles "Research Intern" and "Research Assistant" interchangeable or would that be too much of a stretch?
  8. Hello! I recently began a practicum in a primary school for children ages 3-6. Most of these children have developmental delays in addition to speech/language goals. My graduate program requires us to complete a single-subject research design project and I need some help thinking of ideas! I would like to avoid doing a project on articulation if possible unless someone has a great idea, but does anyone have any good ideas on what I could research? I need to come up with a research question/statement by next week. Thanks!
  9. Hey guys! Just wondering if anyone can relate to my experience or can offer any helpful advice. I began my SLP practicum working with kids ages birth-3 in First Steps, so I travel around to client's houses all day. My supervisor has made it very clear that this job is her life and schedules herself 11-12 hour days (sometimes longer) Monday through Friday. I am typically gone from 7am til 7-8pm or later. I think these hours are ridiculous....especially for a first time practicum student, but I am required to work the same hours as my supervisor. We are also going into some extremely dangerous neighborhoods and I often feel very unsafe. I was told by my school that they won't change my hours since she is directly treating clients for 40 hours per week (apparently it doesn't matter that we are actually working for 60 hours!!). They also won't allow me to decide whether or not I go to those dangerous neighborhoods (although my supervisor picked up these clients because the other SLPs refused to go to these areas). Any advice on how to get through this? It's only been one week and I've come home crying every day and I'm completely overwhelmed. I constantly feel anxious and am not sleeping well either anymore. These hours aren't typical are they? This has really killed my desire to be in the field. 10 more weeks to go...
  10. Finished my undergrad two years ago. Graduate admissions didn’t work out too well (applied to top hep-th schools, so no surprise there). I may apply again, not sure. Either way I’d like to have some solid research experience before I do. Maybe a publication or two in a good journal. However, most summer research option, like REU’s, are impossible now that I’m out of college. So what options do I have? I could just start emailing professors, but that seems disorganized and I’m not sure how I’d be able to arrange the logistics, funding, etc. How do I go about this? Anyone here have experience with this stuff? I’m open to anything in high energy physics theory.
  11. So yesterday I replied to an email from a potential supervisor for a first year internship. I sent her my interview availability yesterday and still haven't heard back. Logically I know I should give her more time before I freak out that she hasn't responded yet, but illogically my anxiety is creeping in. How long should I wait to follow up? A part of the anxiety is that I have to ask for time off work and shocker, I can't tell my boss I'm going on internship interviews. plz help!
  12. Has anyone taken an internship related to your research while on tenure status? I am currently on reserve and had planned to switch to tenure status in the fall. However, my coordinating official said that because my summer internship is directly related to my research (even though it is a private sector internship), I could start using the NSF funding over the summer. Has anyone done this? I trust my CO, but I don't want to do anything that could accidentally mess up my funding.
  13. I have been accepted into the Security Policy Studies masters program at GW. They have only offered me $4k a semester in aid and I need much more help than that to be able to attend. My loans will only cover about $20k a year. Does anyone know of the best way to approach this? Should I write them and ask about more funding opportunities? Can I appeal for more money?
  14. Hi everyone! Can you guys share about your internship experiences as undergraduates? I am currently applying for internship positions at MoMA, Guggenheim, Whitney and SFMoMA. Anyone currently interning or having interned in these places? I am new to the site and thanks in advance!
  15. Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone has heard back from the St. Louis Art Museum yet? I'm not sure when they are sending word.
  16. Hi everyone, Has anyone else applied for one of the Getty Grad internships? I have applied for the curation internship in both painting and drawing. We are due to hear back this month (January) with decisions or interviews. I know its only the start of January but I'm already eager to know. I'm based in the UK but hold dual UK - US nationality Amy
  17. Can anyone speak to their experience or knowledge of doing a social work internship at the VA? I am very interested in behavioral health as it relates to veterans, but behavioral health is very competitive in my area and I am worried if I put everything into getting a placement with them I may end up there, but doing something separate that I'm not interested in. Any information would be helpful.
  18. Hi all, Are there any good, paid museum internships over the summer? I'm a second year PhD student, looking for something to fill that pay gap over the summer when fellowship goes on pause, and also to build my resume for my desired career as a curator. Aside from the National Gallery, I don't actually know of any paid summer internship programs and would love some intel if any of you out there have ideas. Many thanks!!
  19. Hi all, This year I am applying for some top universities AeroAstro graduate programs : MIT, Stanford, Caltech, ... but I don't really know if I have a competitive profile. Could you guys tell me what you think? I am currently in third Bachelor year of polytechnic engineering at the Belgian Royal Military Academy. My score average for the last two years is 15/20 (last year 15.7/20) but there's only one guy in the school who's got more than 16/20, so I am very good. I am also formed in military fields : command, management, combat, sports, etc. I skipped three grades in elementary school. Haven't taken the GRE yet : assume AW 4-5, QR 165+, but not very good VR (maybe 160). TOEFL 110. Three good letters of recommendation. However, as I am only 19 and still in Bachelor, I have never done any research, internships or publications. Do you think this is going to penalize me? My Bachelor's thesis is about the WTW efficiency of electrical cars. Thank you all for your answers, Arthur
  20. Which one should i choose for MS CS: Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ North Carolina State University,NC Which one has better internship and job opportunities??
  21. Hey everyone, so I just had my interview for my internship today. They asked for references which caught me off guard because I had interviewed for another placement and they didn't. The woman made it sound as if there were other people competing for the internship spot. I would think that a CSU would only have the right number of people interviewing for the position. Is this normal? I'm anxious now.
  22. I'm considering applying to graduate school to pursue a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. There are some programs in Wisconsin that have a non-trad focus and have their classes in the evening, which is what I need. The internships and practicum appear to be a substantial issue. My full-time job is a necessity; however, I can afford to take unpaid leave to complete the necessary internship and practicum hours. This issue is that my employer may not allow me to take the unpaid leave to do so. My question and why I'm reaching out: Are there any students or practicing clinicians located in Wisconsin who are aware of placements with evening or night hours? (Every placement I've looked into in the interests of researching this decision ahead of time hold traditional hours of 8 AM to 4:30 PM.) Any help is greatly appreciated.
  23. Hi! I just got accepted into a curatorial internship at the New Museum. I'm not sure if I should accept, given that it's an unpaid internship and I'm moving from Mexico City to NY. My family is willing to make a huge sacrifice to send me to NY (the US dollar – Mexican Peso situation is just over the top), but I'm not sure if my time at the New Museum will be worth all of the effort. I was told by the curatorial assistant that my duties would include researching artists for upcoming exhibitions but also mailing, photocopying etc. I just want to know if interning at the New Museum is, at the end, worth the sacrifice that my parents will make to send me to NY, and pay for my rent etc. Any insights about the work of a former intern at the New Museum will be of help!
  24. http://ic.epfl.ch/SummerAtEPFL Any applicants who plan to apply or have heard decision?
  25. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if there is anyone who's still waiting to hear back from Sotheby's London regarding their Internship Program for April - June 2016. My application has been under review for about 1 month and a half now and it's already March... Maybe anyone with any previous experience? Thanks in advance! George
