Many of our interns stay onboard and start their careers at Sound Transit. Get to know some of them:
“My internship with Sound Transit’s Communications department was the perfect way to marry my Environmental Studies/Urban Sustainability major with my English Literature major. I was exposed to so many different career paths and learning opportunities while working for an agency with a mission I believe in."
“I had the unique opportunity to be a core member of the Connect 2020 Ambassador committee, which was a special experience for me. It was amazing to be able to see it from start to finish. I learned skills during my internship that I couldn't learn in the classroom, and for that I'm grateful.”
“Sound Transit’s internship provided a unique, hands-on experience that allowed me to jump-start my career. Working directly in my field with experienced professionals helped me improve key skills, build strong network connections and prepare to step into a full-time position."
Each summer, Sound Transit offers college students internship opportunities in a variety of departments throughout the agency. These paid positions provide an opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on work experience. This year, we’re offering our internships in a virtual environment.
