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!
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

and communications in her Excellence in Action interview.
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.
