The Wesleyan Student Internship Database 

PEOPLE actually win those raffles?  YES! -- when they enter their summer experiences into WesSID!  This year -- October 2012 -- Elita Irving '13 and Jon Lis '13 each won a $50 Gift Card!  AND they helped their fellow students move on to another exciting adventure.  How can you lose?

THANK YOU TO ALL THE STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED in the raffle (and who are still entering their experiences)!  Because of you, we expanded WesSID from 522 entries on 8/20/12 to 659 as of 10/2, with over 12,200 searches since WesSID's inception in 9/2009!

WesSID is an online database -- comprising internships, research programs, volunteer work, summer jobs and other experiences -- being built by Wesleyan students, for Wes students.  Our goal is to create an excellent networking resource of leads, information, and student recommendations that will benefit other Wesleyan students who are seeking their next great adventure or skill-building experience.

WesSID is password protected and accessible through your Student Portfolio.

ADDING YOUR EXPERIENCE IN WesSID -- click on WesSID Entry Form
Entering a past experience takes five minutes.  Enter past internships, fellowship programs, volunteer work, summer or part-time jobs, and summer research programs.  The experience should be accessible to other students. 

Note: In the Organization Mission field, simply summarize the organization's purpose.  In the Description field, describe your responsibilities, overall quality of the experience, what you gained from it, and whether or not you'd recommend it.

SEARCHING FOR AN EXPERIENCE -- click on WesSID Search
Search WesSID by Field/Industry, Organization, Location, Compensation and Keyword.  Search multiple fields and industries.  For example, if searching for something in Education, also search Nonprofit.

NETWORKING THROUGH WesSID
WesSID offers you the option to allow students to email you for more information about your experience.  This is OPTIONAL.  If you search WesSID and would like more information about an experience, feel free to email the student if the email is provided.
