Looking for another internship

posted Apr 4, 2012, 9:14 AM by jj pionke
Still going to Singapore!  Don't panic!  The second internship that I thought was pretty much lined up has fallen through so I am back on the hunt for another internship.  sigh.  It's kind of a tough position to be in at the moment. On the one hand, I do have a second internship in Uganda, but I don't want to go unless I get funding for it - I can swing one international internship out of pocket (loans), I can't swing two.  Unless I win one or two of the scholarships that I applied for, I will have to do a second internship in Chicagoland where my parents live.  I've started putting out feelers at various places, academic and public.  I'd rather be at an academic library but I am also a firm believer in just try it.  Yet another reason that I was attracted to UM was that attitude of just try it and if it doesn't work, that is ok.  Internships are supposed to be for trying things, which is in part why I am headed to Singapore for the month of June.  Know a library, preferably in the NW suburbs of Chicago that might be interested in an intern?  Let me know!  Leave a comment or send me an email jjpionke@gmail.com
