    Interview to Internship (i2i), a Career Kickstart program, prepares students for life after college by giving them an immersive interview experience. In i2i, company representatives looking to hire interns visit the UW Department of Communication for two hours to conduct 15-minute interviews with pre-selected UW Comm students. Through the program, students have the opportunity to meet with a variety of potential employers and secure dynamic internships. Past companies who have participated in our i2i program include: Alaska Airlines Magazine, Solid Ground, and JJ Caprices.
