Summer Break Continued…..

Summer break — Blog — Smarten Up

It is July and we are half way through the summer. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer heat and their Fourth of July Weekend. I have recently applied for two internship opportunities and they include, the Smithsonian International Relations and the Virtual Internship with National Cemetery Administration History Program. These two programs are open to all majors and the deadline is July 31st. There is no recommendation of letters required and is fairly easy to do. If you are looking for internship opportunities over the summer, it is a great time to find online or virtual internships and reach out to your home campuses. For me, I have been searching for internships since May and truthfully it has been somewhat challenging but nonetheless it is vital to continue to research and seek out internship positions. I also have been seeking out job opportunities such as applying for retail jobs in my area. But did you know that the Universities at Shady Grove has resources to help students find jobs and internship opportunities. For example, Career and Internship Services Center helps you find jobs, careers, and internships positions and plus they are virtually open currently and have upcoming events. https://shadygrove.umd.edu/student-services/CISC.

On the other hand, I have been relaxing over the summer break and working on puzzles and doing embroidery. I have come to appreciate the arts and crafts and work on art projects with myself and friends. Here are some pictures of what I have accomplished and you too can do as well. I would love to hear about what you guys have been doing over the summer and what your plans are for the remainder of the summer. Reach out to me @mimi2491
