I am now the K-12 Librarian at the American School of Asuncion, a school of about 650 students. I received the job by Skype! One Skype interview in November 2014 and suddenly I was moving to South America. I previously worked at two great archives while at IU for my Master of Library Science - the Black Film Center/Archive and IU Liberian Collections.

Subject: Internship Opportunity in Olympia for Your Students
The Washington State Legislative Intern Program is currently accepting applications for the 2016 Legislative Session (January – March 2016). We are including a link to our new Internship video. It gives a great explanation of the program and features several interns from the 2015 Legislative Session. We encourage you to share the video with your students, forward to other faculty, and post on your websites. We purposely kept it at four minutes so that it can easily be shown at the beginning or end of class.
The Washington State Legislative Intern Program is a great opportunity for undergraduate juniors and seniors from all majors to learn the legislative process while gaining professional work experience. Interns are placed in offices with similar interests. Several interns per year are assigned to the Republican and Democrat caucus communication departments where they assist in the writing of floor speeches, op-ed pieces, talking points, and newsletters. This is a paid internship
Please encourage anyone interested in the program to visit our web page or contact us with their questions. They can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook
Applications for the 2016 Legislative Session are due October 16. Information on the application process is available on our website.
Thank you for your help in promoting this opportunity to your students

On behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), I invite you to participate in the first session of the Fall 2015 CFR Academic Conference Call series on Wednesday, September 9, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM in WY 226. (ET). Paul D. Williams, associate professor of international relations at Georgetown University, will discuss conducting effective peace operations in Africa and offer policy recommendations for U.S. support of a stable and prosperous continent.
For those students who haven't done these or heard about them, these calls are an excellent opportunity to learn more about particular topics, listen to and ask questions of a national policy expert, and hear how students across the US and the world think about international relations. They are always very interesting, and I hope that you'll join me!
As background for the discussion, you may wish to review the following materials:
1) Paul D. Williams, “Four questions—and answers—about U.S. support of peacekeeping in Africa,” Monkey Cage, Blog, Washington Post, May 15, 2015.
2) Paul D. Williams, Enhancing U.S. Support for Peace Operations in Africa, Council Special Report No. 73, Council on Foreign Relations Press, May 2015.
Please RSVP to Professor Seth Weinberger at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you're interested in attending!
Hope to see you there...
