Sealaska’s internship program offers shareholders and descendants a summer of professional experience. Interns work in departments such as accounting, environmental, natural resources, corporate communications, software development and cultural non-profit. Interns are offered competitive compensation, travel expenses and a housing stipend.
Along with professional experience in Sealaska’s offices and businesses, the program helps interns reconnect with their Alaska Native roots. They hiked to the Mendenhall Glacier, sang Tlingit songs in Hoonah and ate traditional Native foods. The week in Southeast Alaska gave the interns a chance to be immersed in the land, language and culture of the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian. They also gained networking skills and learned more about their Native Corporation.
The 2018 internship application opens January 1.
