Imagine YOU Spending the Summer in DC as an Intern!
Think an internship in DC is beyond your reach? Unattainable? A pipe dream? Think again!
The Villanova DC Public Policy Society (PPS) Internship Program provides summer internship and other experiential educational opportunities for Villanova University students who seek to explore and experience careers in the nation’s capital.
Gaining real-world and relevant work experience in Washington, D.C., prior to graduation is vital for students who seek to build a career in DC. Internships allow students to develop professionally and build professional relationships that they can leverage to identify and secure future opportunities. In a town that thrives on the power of relationships and values interpersonal connections, spending quality time in DC working and networking before graduation can help students launch their careers.
PPS members have leveraged their relationships with key organizations in DC to provide valuable internship opportunities to Villanova students. Internship opportunities are available at a number of important organizations, including the Financial Services Roundtable, World Vision, Catholic Relief Services, and others.
Students who would like to participate in the program are asked to submit their résumé and letter of interest explaining why they seek to build a public policy career in DC to Kate Szumanski, director of professional development, in the Office for Undergraduate Students, by March 14, 2017. Student applications will be reviewed by University staff and members of the Villanova DC Public Policy Society, and students will be notified if their application progresses to the interviewing phase. Final hiring decisions will be made by the supporting organization that offers the internship.
