Rocky Interns in DC: Final Thoughts

 Hi everyone!

I thought that I would wrap up the "Rocky Interns in DC" blog post series with thoughts about my own summer DC internship experience.  As mentioned previously, I interned at the U.S. Department of Justice in the Office of International Affairs (OIA).  OIA is a part of the Criminal Division, working with foreign counties and aiding them in their own criminal investigations.  I worked on “Team Europe” and dealt almost exclusively with incoming Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) requests from European countries who were seeking evidence located in the US, such as bank records and witness interviews.

I really enjoyed my job this summer.  Some intern event highlights include a lecture series beginning with a speech and Q&A session with Attorney General Eric Holder, coffee with Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, and tours of the U.S. Department of State and the FBI.  Everyone that I worked with was wonderful and extremely helpful, willing to give advice and speak about their own careers.  In addition, another great bonus to my internship was that two of my fellow interns were also Dartmouth students and Rocky Funded Interns: Charolette Williams ’13 and Alexis Zavras ’13.  I had a great time working with them!
This concludes the “Rocky Interns in DC” blog post series; however, if you would like to find out more information about Rocky interns, please visit the Rockefeller Center Facebook page and check out the “Notes from the Field” section.  Also, as mentioned previously, see the Rockefeller Center Website under First-Year Fellows and Rocky Student Interns for more information and student bios.
Thank you for reading!
