FAQ

We anticipate selecting three to five interns for each of the three 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 6 p.m. each day for our Day Programs, or 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for our overnight programs; however, there will be opportunities for you to take breaks throughout the day. Interns arrive at the program two days before the program begins and depart the following Friday evening 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 at the overnight program. For our Day Programs, interns will need to transport themselves to and from the program each day, but will be provided with snacks and lunch.
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 Claire Mannisto, our Recruitment Manager, at claire@wbw.org.
There is no charge to be an intern, however, interns that participate at our Day Program campuses will be responsible for their transportation to and from the program every day.
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.

Applicants must have attended at least one Business Week Program as a participant.

Qualified applicants may be called for a brief phone interview.

Candidates will be notified of their admission to the internship program in late April.

Interns are hired by, report to and are supervised by our Program Manager.
