Welcome to Summer Internships
An Internship is the position of a student or trainee who works in an organization, often without pay, in order to obtain experience, industry insight, mentors, role models and opportunities to grow their professional network. True to its name, Everett Public Schools Internship Program prepares students to apply for and get the most out of internships in local community organizations during the Summer School Break and although summer seems set in the far-distance future, it will be here sooner than any of us think!
Positions are filling up fast, the time to apply is now!

A veteran of three internships, he writes about all three experiences discussing the pros and the cons. About one experince he writes: "This internship was my first real attempt at applying to internships. With my minimal work experience, I was grasping at straws with my applications. That being said, it allowed me to gain valuable line items on my resume. While the job may not have been very glamorous and with a relatively unknown tech firm, adding experience in any facet is very important. Never be deterred by an internship that doesn't exactly fit what you see yourself doing. Experience is experience!"
Daniel Bae, Sourcing Coordinator at Amazon
"In my experience, internships are a great way to learn what the classroom can't teach you. Schoolwork is of course very important but you will find that in your career the knowledge school provides is just the foundation and your day-to-day tasks may look nothing like what you have seen in school. Internships are a great way to start to build on that foundation, especially since it's a time where you're not expected to know what to do and asking questions is highly encouraged. In my profession people like to say that an intern who doesn't ask questions is scarier than an intern who asks too many."
Madeline Miller, Assurance staff at Moss Adams
