We ask that all student interns complete a career survey to help narrow their career interests, and assist us in placing them in internships they wish to explore.
Student Interns can take the Washington State Career Bridge Quiz, here:
Students may also take the Minnesota State Career Cluster Interest Survey, here:
*** Once the student has completed the survey, please forward the results and the application materials to the Program Coordinator at: email@example.com. ***
What is a Career Cluster?
“A career cluster is group of careers that share common features. If you like one job in a cluster, you will probably find other jobs in that cluster that you will like as well.
Here are examples of three different career clusters:
- Health — Workers in this cluster help people have healthy lives. Some work directly with people, some don’t. This cluster contains jobs like home health aide, medical sonographer, pharmacy aide, and medical transcriptionist.
- Business — Workers in this cluster help companies run smoothly. This cluster contains jobs like office clerk, receptionist, credit checker, and janitor.
- Public Safety — Workers in this cluster protect people and enforce laws. This cluster contains jobs like security guard, court clerk, alarm installer, and life guard (Careerwise – Minnesota State, 2019).”
Here is a valuable listing of Career Clusters from Washington Career Bridge:
