What It’s Like to Intern at SEL



Computer Science, Washington State University

Desta is from Boston, Massachusetts. She works on automated testing of power system applications in SEL research and development.


“I applied for an internship after hearing from classmates and graduate-level students that SEL is a great place to intern. I’m able to apply my academic knowledge in a setting outside of school, which helps a lot. Even better is that SEL found a way to incorporate what I’m interested in with what the company needs.”

Biggest Eye-Opener

“If I’m behind in finishing a project at school, it impacts only me. If I’m behind at SEL, it impacts an entire team. This has given me a bigger sense of responsibility and a feeling that what I’m doing is important work.”

School Matters

“I work 10 hours a week during the school year and full time during summer. In 2018, I crammed my junior year into one semester and was swamped with classes and studying. My manager accommodated my schedule. He made it clear that he wanted me to succeed as a student.”



Former accounting intern; now an SEL accountant

“My favorite memory of my internship was when I found out that my research and recommendations were used to make important decisions.”



Former technician intern; now an SEL associate field service supervisor

“I applied the knowledge I gained from school to solve component-level failures on real SEL products.”



Double major in Broadcast Journalism and Advertising, Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, Washington State University (WSU)

“I get hands-on experience and learn more in depth about things that I have a basic understanding of. Previously, I would typically work in natural settings with photography and video. However, here at SEL I get to work in controlled studio settings, and I’ve been learning a lot from my mentor.”
