What is an Internship?

An Internship is a workplace experience, like a job, which can help you grow and learn about careers you might want to pursue.  An internship will have a position description, several learning objectives, as well as start and end dates.

  • At Highline Public Schools, an internship can be full or part-time, paid or unpaid, and offered during the summer or even the school year.     
  • A parent or legal guardian will need to give written permission for a student to participate, and a school representative will help make sure all policies are followed. 
  • Please remember you are not guaranteed an internship since there are not enough positions for everyone, but you are encouraged to apply and have your resume and cover letter ready at all times.
