Environment, Green Tech, and Sustainability Internships in New Zealand and Spain Info Session - Shared screen with speaker view
Melissa Bender
Hi everyone. I’ve lost my voice so I can’t talk today, but I’m happy to answer your questions about the course in the chat.
Melissa Bender
As Glynis mentioned, I’m a faculty member in the University Writing Program. I teach a wide range of upper-division writing courses that are aimed at students who are nearing their graduation date and need to practice the kinds of writing that they’ll do in their future careers. One of the courses that I teach is Environmental Writing (UWP 102G). So I’m quite accustomed to working with students like you who are thinking about how to prepare for careers that have an environmental focus. An internship is a great choice!As the instructor of UWP 198 for this internship program, I view my role as a facilitator who helps you make the most of your internship. Our brief writing assignments will help you reflect on the work you’re doing and prepare to represent that work in future job search scenarios. Having a global internship on your resume will certainly make you stand out, but to get the most out of the internship, you need to be able to communicate effectively about what you learned through that experience. I’m here to help you do that.
