Indy + Star Present re: Internships
It was standing-room only while the State Board's Communicators (interns), Star and Indy, presented about their experience at this year's Association of Washington Student Leaders Fall Conference in Tacoma. Students crowded into a math classroom at Washington High School to hear about a high-level internship and how that has impacted two seniors in Washington State. The two shared:
- what they do and how they do it
- some examples of what they have done so far
- advice on how to interact with adults
- thoughts on building working relationships with professionals
- their experience being interviewed and applying

Following Indy and Star's session, many students had follow-up questions about where they can find internships like theirs, how to make their resume stand-out, and how to succeed in the interview process. Most of their tips for interviewing and applying are outlined in their presentation. Star shared a resource she found helpful (searchable internship portal courtesy of Seattle Public Schools). Many students hoped their districts would develop something similar.
