We hire candidates from all majors and backgrounds for two years, during which time they receive full salary and benefits, as well as student loan deferment and $9,450 in AmeriCorps grants to pay back student loans or pursue another degree. Our goal is to empower leaders to further develop their skills while working to give children in low-income communities an excellent education. After the corps, Teach For America alumni apply their leadership skills and experience to create change in all sectors using our network of alumni and our partnerships with over 100 graduate, medical and law schools and over 20 top employers, including GE, Google, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Wachovia.

Three myths about Internships, Research, and Co-ops

Three myths about Internships, Research, and Co-ops brought to you by your Shriver Center Coordinators at UMBC

Myth: The downturn in the economy means that no internships are available.

FACT: Interns are still in demand and will be where many organizations look to fulfill their fulltime recruiting needs. More and more companies report that they are using their interns as an effective way to fill their hiring needs. By participating in an internship you can get the inside track on the best opportunities. The Shriver Center has connections with hundreds of organizations where you can get your foot in the door (most paid). By getting your resume approved in UMBCworks, you will have access to them as well!

Myth: Most students don't have enough experience to make a compelling resume and get the best positions.

FACT: You're probably more competitive than you think - and the Shriver Center can help you develop a resume and interview skills that will make you stand out. The Shriver Center has a range of services just for UMBC students to help you standout from your peers and get the positions you seek. We specialize in working with students to transform your credentials from ordinary to extraordinary!

Myth: If you're going to graduate school, you don't need to do internships or research.

FACT: What will make your applications stand out is the ways that you have applied what you have learned inside the classroom in a practical setting. The Shriver Center isn't just for students preparing for the corporate world - UMBCworks has many opportunities for students interested in research and academia.

A Thanksgiving Message from the Shriver Center

Are you dreading that Thanksgiving conversation?

You know, the one that goes something like:

Family-member: So, what are you going to do next summer?

You: I don't know, probably the same thing I did last year.

Family Member: Well, with all the news about the economy, I don't think it's smart to put all your eggs in one basket. And you know you can't mooch off of us another year.

You: Stop bugging me! I just don't know where to begin!

And an awkward silence fills the room, ruining your delicious pumpkin pie.

Wouldn't you rather be able to say...

You: Well, I met with my Shriver Center coordinator and they helped me get my resume in good shape. They also showed me how to use UMBCworks to apply to positions. I have two offers already from Fortune 500 companies and I'm interviewing with 3 other organizations over winter break. While I haven't made up my mind yet, I have a lot of good choices. The economy may be down, but there is still a strong market for interns and I know I'm going to have a good experience that may even set me up for a fulltime job after graduation.

Call 410-455-2493 to make an appointment with the Shriver Center TODAY to start your path to a successful spring or summer internship and avoid Thanksgiving awkwardness.
