WA Department of Social & Health Services Internships

Washington State Department of Social & Health Services

DSHS is interested in college juniors or seniors currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate university degree in Social Sciences, Statistics, Law, Medicine, Computer Science, Business Technology and/or related area and would like to have a learning and service opportunity that will help shape your future career outlook.

DSHS Internships offer hands-on, social service work experience that cannot be obtained in any classroom setting. You will have the opportunity to apply acquired skills, knowledge and abilities to practical experiences in
communication, teamwork and service excellence. You will be able to try out career fields you may not have even known existed.

The expectation is that you will intern 10 – 12 hours per week.
Course Credit: College course credit may be available. We will work with your academic institution to help you earn any academic credits for which you are eligible.

Expected internship dates begin February 1, 2019. We offer flexible dayshift schedules throughout the completion of the project. Internship offices are located in Olympia, Lacey, Seattle and Spokane

You will be immersed in a work environment, which is about more than earning course credit and getting a grade, it is about your professional development and learning more about what does and does not work
for you.

DSHS offers you a great way to get a head start on your job search and prepare for a successful career in your field. This internship is unpaid, without the provision of benefits.

DSHS is looking for students who can think on their feet, solve problems creatively, and work independently. You will need exceptional communication and presentation skills, ability to work productively with a diverse team, and be a savvy technology user. Please email the following to Tracie.Kidd@dshs.wa.gov by January 28, 2019.

  • A letter of interest describing your specific qualifications.
  • A current resume detailing applicable experience and education

January 21, 2019, is the application deadline for February 2019 internship placements.
