UELIP Intern

June 2023 - August 2023 Washington, DC
“It was a really great environment. The vast majority of people were very nice, and the program managers were understanding of any personal difficulties. You also have a nice end product that you can talk about at the end of the internship, one that is impactful and supposed to see continued use by DCPS. The program managers facilitated a discussion about how we can talk about the experience in resumes and future interviews, which I found to be helpful. ”
