MASS MUTUAL

Financial Services Representative

 

Opportunity: A rewarding career for college graduates.  As a recent college graduate, you’ve already proven that you’re self-motivated and goal-oriented. If you’re interested in a career that rewards hard work and provides the satisfaction of helping people and impacting lives for the better, then a career as a Financial Services Representative may be right for you.  

 

Description:  As a Financial Services Representative with The Piedmont Group, LLC, a MassMutual general agency, you’ll work with clients to help them find solutions to their financial challenges by recommending appropriate products and services.

NOLAN ELDER LAW

Internship

 

Opportunity: Nolan Law Firm, a small law firm on Valleydale Road, seeks an intern to shadow the attorney and get an insider perspective on the practice of law.

 

Description:  Hours are flexible and dress code (except when going to court) is casual. Free coffee is a real plus and free parking right outside the door is something not every law firm can offer you. When there is nothing going on you are welcomed to study if needed or simply surf the internet. While I would like to say that every day is slammed, the truth is that business ebbs and flows.

 

Here is the catch: This is an Elder Law practice. What this means is that much of our work veers closer to Social Work than it does to the law practices you will see on your favorite TV show. We do not handle litigation so courtroom antics are not something you are likely to see here. The typical day involves meeting with someone your mother’s age to discuss in detail how to provide for someone your grandmother’s age. Veterans benefits, Medicaid, Social Security, dementia, estate planning and probate are all topics we routinely discuss with clients. If your interest is litigation, this is not a good fit. If your interest is helping people who don't know where to turn, this might work for you.

 

One more catch: This is an unpaid position. We are offering you an opportunity to see how the business of running a law practice works in exchange for your occasional labor. Happy to write recommendations as needed and happy to discuss ways of getting class credit for you but there are no paychecks with this job.

 

There is more about the firm on our website: www.ElderLawAlabama.com

 

To Apply: Contact Jessica for more details and to set up an interview: (205) 390-0101.

RAM ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES

Internship/PT Job

 

Opportunity: I am working with my father to rebuild the business he started with a partner 20+ years ago (www.ramenv.com). In addition to his 20+ years operating and growing this business, my father has a background in banking and personal finance, has an MBA from Samford, and is a past-president of both the Alabama IAFP and the Alabama ICFP (now merged into the FPA of North Alabama).  I have a Building Science Degree from Auburn, and I worked for Robins & Morton for 7 years. I also served in the US Navy for 4 years.

 

We’re coming to the end of a massive transition from the original partnership, and we’re deep “in the weeds” implementing new technologies and modernizing our sales, marketing, and communication strategies.  I think we’re on the verge of solid growth, but as a small business trying to re-establish ourselves, the outcome is, of course, uncertain.

 

I’m thinking that an entrepreneurial minded student with broad interests in technology and business administration would be a great fit to help roll out some of our technology projects (Salesforce, ISNetworld, Constant Contact). And also assisting with tweaking some of our communication strategies.

 

I’m kind of in brain-storming mode and I’m reaching out to some local universities to see if there is any interest from students in seeing what a small business goes through, even 20+ years after getting off the ground.

CAHABA ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER

Environmental Educator

 

About the Cahaba Environmental Center:  The Cahaba Environmental Center (CEC) is an environmental education organization managed by McDowell

Environmental Center. The CEC is located on the property of Living River: A Retreat on the Cahaba, outside of Montevallo in Bibb and Shelby Counties. The site is a breathtaking tree-covered point nestled in a deep bend in the Cahaba River, preserving a mix of hardwoods and older trees that were once typical of Alabama’s river bottoms but elsewhere have been logged and replaced with faster-growing pines. The Cahaba River provides habitat for an impressive diversity of aquatic species, is one of Birmingham’s drinking water sources, and has become a hot spot for recreational activities. Because of our unique location, we front over 4 miles of the river to canoe and explore.

 

Opportunity:  The Cahaba Environmental Center’s pilot season starts this fall. In our residential environmental education program, school groups spend 3-5 days exploring the natural and cultural history of Alabama. Our curriculum is based in place, student-centered, hands-on, and follows inquiry-based and holistic approaches. Currently our programs are aligned to Alabama standards for grades 4-8, but we will be expanding our curriculum to include high school standards in 2016. In addition to our residential environmental education program, the Cahaba Environmental Center will also host a field science school for university and college professors to teach and participate in field research with their students.

 

Mission: The mission of the Cahaba Environmental Center at Living River is to inspire and empower learners of all ages to become stewards of the natural world by connecting them to the Cahaba River.

 

Program:  Students will make personal connections to the Cahaba River through first-hand experiences.  Students will increase their awareness and understanding of Alabama ecosystems and human interactions with the Cahaba River. Students will connect with each other and gain a better sense of community. Students will become empowered to make positive decisions as environmental stewards.

Our curriculum covers ecological concepts, watershed sciences, Native American cultures, geologic processes, coal mining, and evening programs such as campfires, night hikes, and town hall debates. An educator leads one field group of 10-13

students throughout a school’s entire visit. This provides a chance for the educator to develop meaningful relationships with their students and tailor their lessons to best meet the interests and needs of the group. During our pilot season in Fall 2015, there are plenty of opportunities for staff to take on personal projects to expand their experiences in trail building, creating teaching materials, meeting with teachers, and a variety of

other skills. All potentials are seasonal at this time.

 

Responsibilities Include: Teach engaging natural and cultural history lessons to learners of all ages.  Create a safe, positive learning environment for learners through positive reinforcement, rolemodeling, and cultural sensitivity.  Lead groups on hikes, canoeing, and other naturalist activities.  Facilitate low ropes course initiatives.  Provide leadership in risk management before, during, and after classes (e.g., respond to emergencies, administer first aid, maintain first aid kits, complete incident reports).  Serve as a positive role model to visitors and fellow staff members.  Maintain teaching materials and perform regular maintenance duty each week, or as necessary.  Participate in staff meetings.  Actively participate in program evaluation.  Represent and support the Cahaba Environmental Center in marketing and activities that promote

COASTAL MARINE EDUCATION & RESEARCH ACADEMY

Summer Research Program

 

Shark & Ray Field Research Opportunity:  Our early enrollment period is ending December 31, 2014 for our summer 2015 program.  This summer you can be a part of our research team as a crew member aboard one of our research boats, gaining hands-on marine field research experience, and handling sharks and stingrays in Florida.  This experience will advance your interest in natural science, provide you valuable experience for your resume, enable you to be eligible to receive credit hours (see below), and provide the enjoyable opportunity to interact with fellow students from all over the country! 

 

Description:  All participating students will be conducting field research on sharks and rays in the Clearwater, FL area in an ongoing project focusing on a species survey, population stability, and population dynamics.  All students will work on our boats in the Gulf of Mexico, setting equipment to catch sharks and rays,retrieving the equipment, handling the animals, collecting pertinent data from the animals, collecting environmental data, tagging the animals, and releasing the animals back into their natural habitat.  Students will also attend daily lectures (1 - 2 hours) on our local ecosystems and the animals that live in those ecosystems.  Students will then receive field instruction as they experience our local and unique ecosystems.  Snorkeling and diving are also available options to further experience our underwater world.

 

CMERA is a unique program that focuses on field research.  In our program, Monday - Friday, 6 - 8 hours are spent in the field on one of our boats each day with an additional 1 - 2 hours in the classroom each day.  This is an incredibly hands-on program where students conduct all portions of the research project and handle the animals.  Students get to experience wild animals in their natural habitat, which is very different from observing captive animals or conducting research in a lab.

 

Our summer courses begin in 1 week periods (Sunday - Saturday) on May 3 and our final week ends on August 29.  Students may attend 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or 4 weeks depending on how many credit hours or how much field experience they would like to receive.  There are financial incentives for attending 3 or 4 weeks.  We also have an early enrollment discount, which ends December 31, 2014, and regular enrollment ends March 31, 2015.

 

Location:  All of our research is conducted in the Gulf of Mexico in Clearwater, Florida and the surrounding areas.

 

Qualifications:  Students must be 18 years of age or older.  Incoming freshman, who have not yet taken college courses, and college graduates are both welcome.  This experience is valuable for students at various levels.  For students interested in the natural sciences, but who have not had much, if any, experience in the natural sciences, this experience may help determine if this truly is the appropriate course of study.  Students who are confident in their natural science discipline, will gain incredibly valuable job training.  Students who are contemplating a graduate degree, will get a taste of what graduate level research is, the difficulties of research, and perhaps ideas for their graduate thesis.

 

Course credit:  For students currently enrolled in college courses, we urge you to speak with your academic advisor or department chair about receiving credit for our courses.  Most schools consider this as independent research, directed study, field research, or elective credits and some schools use our program for a Capstone project.  This experience is very valuable for future internships or jobs that you will apply for even if you are unable to receive course credit.

 

To Apply:  Go to www.cmera.net for more information and to apply for this amazing opportunity!!  Space is limited!   We will provide email addresses, by request, of previous participants, if you would like to speak to a previous student about their experience with us.  Please feel free to contact us via email at info@coastalmera.com or call us at (727)437-8589 if we can assist you in any way.
