Seattle City Light has a good bit of money, staffing and motivation behind expanding their PAID internship program in all areas – tech, business, historic preservation (!!), HR, Government Affairs, etc. It is absolutely fabulous and exciting, and more will come on that in the very near future – I’ll share info with you as soon as I have it J
But in the meantime, there is another event that I wanted to share with you, the City of Seattle Career Day (flyer attached). It’s being hosted on November 1st and is an open house of sorts for students to learn about careers with the City of Seattle – all of its units and departments, not just City Light.
The RSVP/registration deadline is October 28th.
