Major: International Relations I made two major contributions: one was writing a number of articles that were published on COHAýs website. The other was the administrative compilation of potential subscriber dataýdata of libraries and universities all across the country, as well as internationally for COHA to reach out to for distribution of our published paper: the Washington Report on the Hemisphere. I collected and compiled information on over 230 outside organizations for this project. Besides this, I also edited other interns' papers, both personally and as part of larger editing groups.
Major: Psychology As an intern I played a supportive role to the case manager. My duties included support in job coaching to help employees successfully handle on-the-job conflicts and other barriers to employment. I assisted in teaching job retention classes that highlighted the importance of, first impressions, attendance, performance, communication, and career advancement.
Major: Health Professions I sat in on bed meetings, which was an overview of how full the hospital was for the day with beds, how many nurses they had on as well as PCA's and trying to make sure that every floor was staffed correctly and just an overview of what the day may look like with surgeries, patients getting discharged, etc.
