Please join us from 1:00pm – 3:30pm for the Government and Policy Job & Internship Fair, hosted virtually in Handshake! This fair is open to all majors at UW Seattle. Registration for UW-Seattle students and alumni is open!


The 2021 Virtual Government and Policy Job & Internship Fair, hosted by the UW Career & Internship Center, will give you an exciting opportunity to network with dozens of employers (via 10-minute 1:1 video chats and 30-minute group sessions), who are all looking to recruit UW students and alumni for full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities.

-All majors are welcome-

During the employer registration process for the virtual Government and Policy Job & Internship Fair, we gave employers the opportunity to share a webpage describing their organization’s efforts in the realm of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We then created a resource compiling employers’ commitments for students to reference as they prepare for the fair. Check out the resource here:
