BRUIN EDGE: Week 9

You’re so close to the end of spring quarter! We’re sending you all our best vibes to finish strong, just like UCLA Softball, which is headed to the Women’s College World Series this week. Go Bruins!
 


ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT
 
Linda Lehrer ’71, Ph.D. is currently the director of New York Public Programs for the Aspen Institute. Her past experiences include working as a journalist for the Wall Street Journal and the Chicago Tribune, serving as communications director for Scholastic, Inc., where she launched the award-winning PBS show, “The Magic School Bus,” and teaching journalism and writing at Fordham and New York University. Learn more about her impressive career in journalism and communications in her Excellence in Action interview.
 


PROFESSIONAL TIP
 
If you’re starting an internship this summer, make the most of it by getting to know co-workers who aren’t your supervisor or fellow interns. Use your internal directory or company website to find staff in roles that interest you, and reach out to them over email or in person to ask for an informational interview over lunch or coffee to learn more about their work. Other ways to maximize your internship: ask your supervisor if you can sit in on some of his/her meetings, don’t sit idle if your load is light—ask colleagues how you can help or develop a project of your own that fits a need, and come to meetings prepared with a list of well-researched questions on the topic.
