Interested in surfing the world-renowned North Shore at Waimea Bay when you get off work? Or hiking in the Volcanoes National Park? A Hawaii internship just might be for you. Hawaii is the only state made up entirely of islands, with eight main islands and a lush natural landscape. Interns in Hawaii will get to choose between Kauai, with its Nepali Coast surfing and Waimea Canyon hiking, Oahu, the most populated island, Molokai and its rich history, Maui and its white sand beaches, Lanai and its untouched beauty and the main Hawaii island with its famous active volcano. Regardless of where your job takes you, Hawaii interns will get to experience the best parts of all the islands with cheap island hopping flights.
If you’re unsure about settling into the island lifestyle, The University of Hawaii has ten campuses and a thriving college community. The university is also a leader of economic growth and jobs. Internships in Hawaii can be directly related to the university’s research programs in environmental engineering and design, or take a different route and engage in the tourism industry through marketing and business development.
An internship in Hawaii is not like any other internship you will find in the United States. Unlike the fast-paced life in a city, Hawaii will feel more laid-back while still maintaining a level of extreme productivity. The work hard play hard attitude of the island locals is sure to pay off when you get off the clock and get to enjoy the warm summer weather and amazing natural sites that Hawaii has to offer.
