Summer job opportunities for students

With the school year coming to an end multiple job opportunities and internships have become available for students.

The 2021-22 school year has drawn to a close with classes ending for students, but many job opportunities for students in the summer and the 2022-23 school year have begun to open up. 

The Student Activities Board has opened applications for students who want to become a coordinator for the organization. The three positions they have open are the Staple Events Coordinator, the Husky Life Coordinator and the Mascot Ambassador. All three positions are paid positions and can be found online at the Handshake portal for UW Tacoma. 

There are also various internship opportunities for the summer listed through the Handshake portal as well as some open to students of all programs. Examples are the Social Justice Summer Internship Program by the Center for Equity and Inclusion and the New Directions Internship by the Community Youth Services.
