Internships as a Graduate Student

Our next event will be a Q&A with two School of Physics grad students, Tingnan Zhang and Claire Yanyan Ji, who both had industry internships this past summer. Tingnan worked at Google, while Claire worked at Boston Scientific.  They will describe their internship experiences, and will be happy to answer questions such as how they found their internships and how they arranged with their advisers to take time off from their thesis research. Join us for this event on Tuesday November 3rd at 4 pm in the Interaction Zone (Howey S105). We will provide food and drinks as well. GCal event
