Since F/ASIP’s inception in 1997, over 650 MIT freshmen have participated in the 9-month, graded seminar geared towards teaching valuable career exploration and preparation skills. As part of F/ASIP, freshmen assess their interests, skills and values; explore career options, and cultivate professional skills like communication, etiquette, and networking. F/ASIP also assists freshmen in finding summer internships or research experiences, and pairs students with a mentor (usually an MIT alum) while they intern or complete a summer research project. Past participating employers include: The American Diabetes Association, CIA, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, NASA, and more.
All freshmen are eligible to apply, including international students. Furthermore, the program is open to freshmen in any stage of their career development, from those who are unsure of their choice of major and professional interests, to those who are certain of their future plans.
If you know of a freshman who you think would be a good fit for F/ASIP, please encourage them to apply by December 19th, 2011 on the F/ASIP website.
