Prepare for your Internship or Self-Directed Project

Develop New Skills on the Job - Lynda.com

Did you know that Middlebury subscribes to Lynda.com - a collection of online video tutorials on topics ranging from web development to project management? 

Sample tutorials include (not are not limited to): managing a website, social media marketing, creating data visualizations, developing apps, inspiring others, and time management.

Here's what a previous intern told us about Lynda.com:
"I've been getting much more into audio and video editing and production in general by taking some Lynda.com courses on my commute and in my free time. I feel like not that many students know Middlebury has a Lynda.com subscription, but it is SUCH a great resource for just about everything, including career building. I took a course on "How to Rock Social Media" the other day that was fantastic.”

Capture Your Experience and Reflect on Your Learning

Create a digital record of your learning and experience at go/MiddCreate that you can share with others! See instructions and samples here and consider sharing your page with the CCI.

Note: This platform works especially well for those doing self-directed projects and/or those engaged in outdoor, international, or creative experiences.

We are here for you!

CCI Advisors are here all summer! Reach out to the advisor in your interest area or Cheryl Whitney Lower for questions, concerns, or career planning conversations.
