On its current trajectory, today’s workforce will fail to meet the future demand of our industry—an industry that generated 21.4 Billion dollars in revenue in 2015, and that proudly serves as Washington state’s third largest employer.

Help guide a new generation towards rewarding, lucrative careers by hosting an intern at your company.

Why host an intern?

  • Create a pipeline for potential new employees

  • Enhance visibility of your organization

  • Expand the skills set of your current employees

  • Offer management experience to employees supervising interns

  • Get lingering, low-priority projects completed

  • The personal satisfaction of helping students progress in their chosen career path
