Pre-Arrival Experience

The Washington Center matches you with an internship. Throughout this process, our internship advisors offer assistance and feedback.

  • Define goals and expectations based on your interests, knowledge and skills.
  • Review your resume and offer tips for improvement.
  • Discuss next steps in the internship matching process.
  • Explore potential internship site opportunities.

Throughout the following weeks/months:

  • TWC submits your documents to targeted internship sites.
