"I definitely recommend interning at New England Aquarium, whether it's the penguin department or not. The job is hard work sometimes and always unglamorous (be prepared to touch dead fish, scrub guano, get bitten, and be in cold water most of the day), but it's such a unique and amazing opportunity. The job is such a blast, and everyone who works there is super nice. Although unpaid, you get great benefits from the aquarium, and the volunteer office does fun things for the interns like holding pizza parties and resume workshops. The aquarium is addicting -- once you start there you never want to leave!"
