Wojciech Sip, '16, intern at the Poznań University of Economics

Wojciech Sip, '16, Philosophy and Economics double major, is interning in his hometown this summer at the Poznań University of Economics.

 The project I’m involved in - “Business situation in Poland – Indicator Analysis” is a study conducted by a group of researchers at the Microeconomics Department of Poznań University of Economics. It is being prepared for the fifth edition of a  bulletin of economic analyses published quarterly by the University. It is also going to serve as a part of the University’s cooperation with a number of entrepreneurial groups and chambers of commerce. This edition of the bulletin is going to be published in cooperation with one of the biggest banks in Poland – BZ WBK. 

After a year in the U.S. I wanted to find some internship in my hometown – Poznań. It isn’t a huge business center so my possibilities were pretty narrowed down from the beginning. 

If you’re in a similar situation one solution is to hit academic institutions: whatever your field is, chances are there is at least one person doing work in it willing to help a student like yourself/get an extra hand for the project. If you know a specific professor you might want to work with – awesome. However, even if all you know is that you want to get involved in some project in, say, economics – you can still get one. 

My strategy (if we might call it so) was simply to go straight to the local University and talk to random faculty members asking them if they knew someone with a free research position spot. It didn’t take too long before I found a post-doc/assistant professor who offered me a position in his project. As a Research Assistant my tasks include mostly data search and processing using statistics software and developing analyses/short-term forecasts as well as preparing commentary for it.

Ari Kamin, International Relations, Associate Product Analyst for Visa V.Me Digital Wallet Team

Ari Kamin, is working as an Associate Product Analyst for Visa V.Me Digital Wallet Team - Product Strategy and Innovation  in San Francisco, CA. Below is his path to success, with his tips for his peers:
 
"I decided to pursue paid internship for sophomore summer because I had no choice. I needed some money in my pocket, and wanted to work in a rigorous environment where I could learn something useful.
 
After 6 months or so of searching, I landed a position at Visa in San Francisco, CA through the program Inroads. Inroads offers training, courses and placement to high achieiving "minority" and first generation college students in the corporate world.  The students in INROADS come from all walks of life, I learned alongside Stanford students, whose parents immigrated from Laos, to third generation Mexican-Americans studying finance at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. It came a point where it stopped being a "minority" program, as Asians, Hispanics, Blacks and Native Americans make up more than 50% of children born in America.
 
What connected us was our ambition Some students scoff at "affirmative action" programs, but if you are at the University of Rochester there are opportunities for everyone who is persistent, resourceful and open minded. Some students have legacies and networks, some have program opportunities, and some people just grind really hard.
 
My advice is to study what you care about, because the skills will come from experience. Do your industry research, gather a list of potential companies you want to work for (and their competitors) and be persistent. Most importantly, make sure you reflect this in your interview, which is often the hardest point. But fear not, because  you'll never succeed until you fail. I remember my first phone interview I was stumbling over my words in a terrible fashion, and my roommate was on the couch pretending I had done a good job. At the end of the day, we're all gonna fail at many things.
 
My second summer I was taking phone calls while my friends were playing Mario Cart. You gotta do what you gotta do.
 
Looking back, a major factor of what really propelled me was the support from my peers at the U of R and our environment which fostered success. It's easier to find succcess when its the social norm. I'm happy now to be in an environment where I can learn a lot, be financially independent, save money and tackle some college loans. I am very optimistic for what our future holds."

Hannah Rejali, '14, English, interning with Maverick Events in NYC

Hannah, Rejali, '14, is an English major interning in New York City.    

This summer I am interning for Maverick Events an event planning firm in New York City. I have learned so much from this experience already including how to work with large-scale clients like the Boston Red Sox Home Base Program, how to turn research into an event possibility, and the proper etiquette when it comes to working an event. 
My advice to other students looking for internships would be to continue pursuing opportunities. Sending out your resume 100 times doesn't take as much time as you would think so keep applying for internships and eventually you will receive one!
