Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to common questions about Seed Internships.

What is the duration of the internship program?

The Seed Internships program for summer 2024, which includes professional development sessions, runs from June 14 to August 16, 2024. Internship start and end dates are determined by the intern and employer partner.

Where are internships based?

While we cannot confirm specific work environments for each internship until the Spring, Seed expects interns to be in the Puget Sound region for the duration of their internship experience. Interns should be ready to travel to their internship on-site when necessary and to attend the weekly in-person professional development sessions.

What does a typical week look like?

Interns will work approximately 30-36 hours per week. Summer 2024 internships could take a hybrid approach combining a to-be-determined amount of in-office and virtual work. Each Friday all interns will meet in-person, if possible, for professional development. Learning sessions will cover topics including self-advocacy, communication, public speaking, mentorship, and networking, among others.

Who is eligible to apply?

Undergrad students who are attending a college or university in the Puget Sound region (Pierce, King or Thurston County) or graduated from a high school in the Puget Sound and are enrolled in college pursuing an undergrad degree are eligible. Students must be 18 years old at the time of applying, eligible to work in the U.S. and should have completed the equivalent of one year’s worth of college-level coursework before the internship begins.

What makes an applicant ineligible?

  • High school students enrolled in running start are not eligible to apply.
  • We currently do not have employment opportunities for undocumented students.
  • Non-U.S. citizens who do not have proper work authorization, permits, or visas. Please work with your college to ensure you have all the necessary documents prepared before interviewing with an employer.

How do I apply for each position?

You need only submit one application and resume to be eligible for all posted internship positions. Seed staff work to match students with the best fit based on their application responses and resume.

What are some things you look for in a successful applicant?

A successful applicant will be a budding leader who demonstrates intellect, determination, and an innate curiosity to learn.

How do you match applicants to an internship?

Seed staff review application responses with resumes to determine best fit for each internship position. That said, we highly encourage students to be thoughtful in their responses to application questions so we can learn as much as possible about your interests and strengths beyond what you can fit on a resume.
