MIP Class of 2021 Summer Internships
The MIP Class of 2021 summer internship search was disrupted by COVID. Even so, students were resourceful and resilient, and most employers were able to modify plans to keep varied opportunities intact. Two students, for example, who worked with the World Bank were able to do so remotely. Here are some stories from the Class of 2021 about their summer work experiences and how they navigated virtual engagement.
