D.C. Public Schools

Summer Intern

June - August 2018 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I was part of an intern program, so there were about 30 other interns there. There were always professional development programs for the interns, and there was an oppurtunity to learn about what other people were doing.

What I wish was different

More meaningful work, less busy work

Advice

It's more beneficial to intern on a team that you can see yourself working on in the future.

UELIP Intern

May - August 2017 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I got to learn a ton of information about how urban public school districts work behind the scenes. I also got a good work life balance so was able to enjoy the city.

What I wish was different

I wish my first supervisor has been better.

Advice

Your supervisor matters the most. Definitely try reaching out to them directly before even applying and see if you can hammer out an agreeable work agreement.
