The Port of Virginia’s summer internship is an eight week paid program that is designed to develop, teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students as they explore career opportunities within the maritime industry. Each summer, interns are given the opportunity to apply their education to hands-on project focused tasks in various departments throughout The Port of Virginia.
The program runs from June 2022 – July 2022 and includes professional development, philanthropic activities and colleague engagement events. Summer Internship positions will post mid-November for application. 14 Interns have been hired as POV colleagues. That’s 1 in 4 interns since the program launched in 2014.
I enjoyed my internship program a lot! I especially enjoyed how my supervisors took me along with them to meetings directly and indirectly related with my internship. I felt that it gave me more insight and discernment when it came to completing my project.
