FAQ

We anticipate selecting five interns for each of the four universities. Interns will be assigned a specific role by the Program Director at the start of the program.

Summer Intern (General) or Photography Intern

The work hours during our programs will be long – you will be assisting with the activities of our students, who are busy from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day; however, there will be opportunities for you to take breaks throughout the day. Interns arrive at the program the Friday before registration and depart the following Saturday morning after all of the supplies are loaded for their return to the Washington Business Week office.
Dress for Washington Business Week is casual. Shorts and summer attire are acceptable. Dress must be tasteful and appropriate; if in doubt, wear something else. Our Dress Code Policy can be found with the Packing Checklist. There will be lots of walking around campus; bring comfortable walking shoes. On Friday, dress clothes for the Trade Show and awards ceremony is suggested (dresses, sweaters, shirts and slacks).
University housing and all meals will be provided for interns during their time on the university campus.
Our Alumni Ambassador program is another fantastic opportunity to engage with Washington Business Week all through the year. For more information on the Alumni Ambassador program, please contact Kevin Roche, our Recruitment Manager, at kevin@wbw.org.
Upon acceptance, a $100 intern registration fee will be invoiced. This fee is due no later than three weeks before the start of your internship program. Unfortunately, Financial Assistance is not available. You can pay the fee yourself or use our sponsorship tools to raise the money. The Asking a Business for a Sponsorship and Student Sponsorship Form are available for download in our forms section.
All interns are required to attend an internship training session in the Seattle area. Date and time to be determined.

Selection into the Intern Program is through an application and interview process.

Qualified applicants may be called for a brief phone interview.
