Building Conservation Intern | Dublin
University of Vermont
18 July 2018

This summer I completed an internship in Dublin in historic building conservation. Connect-123 provided a dream-come-true opportunity with my internship. Building conservation is not a very large field, but I couldn’t have thought of a more amazing or perfect internship experience for this summer! My company was very friendly and taught me so much about the field. Connect-123 was super supportive and it was wonderful to have such a great community in Dublin! Having spent time traveling on my own, it was incredibly nice to have a ready-made group of friends waiting when I arrived. The connections at work and through Connect-123 will last me a lifetime and provide an amazing portal to my future career.

Astronomy Internship | Dublin
University of Iowa
21 November 2017

After graduating college, I wanted to do a bit of traveling but also wanted to maintain a connection with my specialization. This is where Connect-123 came in. I wasn’t expecting them to find something that fit with my area of expertise because it’s not the most studied topic. However, they surprised me with a placement in a wonderful organization that allowed me to share my passion for astronomy. I will...
