Introduction I will start by describing the application process for assessment organizations as these companies have the most well-established internship programs. I will also describe internship possibilities in other educational settings. I will also discuss how to approach an organization that does not have an internship program so to create an internship for you. Lastly, we’ll have time for Q&A. 2

Other Internship Settings Other settings that have internship opportunities: U.S. Department of Education State departments of education RAND Corporation (Santa Monica, CA); www.rand.orgwww.rand.org Large school districts Publishing/media companies Not-for-profit organizations On-campus departments and offices Note that most of these internships are unpaid, although you can receive college credit. 6
Copyright © 2011 Educational Testing Service. All rights reserved. Other Internship Settings If there is an organization that you would like to eventually work for, consider submitting a proposal to create an internship for yourself. You will need to make a compelling case: How would the company benefit from having you? It helps if you already have a contact person in the organization. It helps if you can describe how this internship fits with your career goals (particularly if you would like to work there after graduation). 7
