While the Richmond team continued to develop their ongoing SITA project this month, they played a fun and competitive game of Earth Team Jeopardy, worked on a Nature Journal Assignment and focused on their professional development.
Professional Development on the Weekend
Earth Team Interns attended a weekend workshop, where Earth Team staff talked about a variety of professional development topics. Topics ranging from resume building to applying for jobs. The interns were then given the option between two breakout rooms, one where they could build or edit their resume and another where they could practice job searching and writing a cover letter.
Professional Development all day, everyday
Continuing on the professional development momentum, following our weekend workshop, Richmond Interns discussed their dream jobs, brainstormed “Dos and Don’ts in Interviews” and participated in mock interviews with their fellow team members. Below are
dream future jobs for a few of our interns:
Physician/Surgeon– Andrea Martinez
I’m not completely sure yet, but lately software engineering has been catching my attention– Yanely
Maybe a dermatologist or a cosmetic chemist– Andrea Melendez
I want to go into the medical field…maybe ultrasound technician– Brenda
These are potential career paths that just a few Richmond interns want to pursue. There are also interests in biomedical engineering, creative arts, and much more. I can’t wait to see what else these awesome interns bring to Earth Team meetings in the next months to come!
