Summer is starting to wrap up and students and families are getting ready to go back to school, including the interns who joined our City team this summer. We hosted 14 high school student interns from Everett Public Schools through the Everett Career Link program, who worked with a variety of our departments. We also had five communications and marketing interns from Washington State University and other local colleges. It has been a joy to get to know them all, provide hands-on experience and connect them to great career opportunities right here in Everett.
Developing and supporting our local workforce is an important priority for the City and we are grateful for these partnerships with our high schools and colleges. Providing career pathways for our students is important for both for their future success and our community. Many thanks to our interns for their service this summer and to our schools for their partnership!
