Port of Long Beach Interns

Applications for the Port of Long Beach Summer High School Internship Program are open.

High school internships are available to current high school juniors and seniors who reside in Long Beach or attend a high school in the Long Beach Unified School District service area.

As the second-busiest container seaport in the United States, the port handles trade valued at $170 billion annually and supports 2.6 million jobs across the nation, more than 575,000 in Southern California, and more than 50,000 jobs – or 1 in 5 – in Long Beach.

The program is tailored for students with an interest in the goods movement industry. Opportunities are available in a variety of fields, including engineering, environmental science, finance, communications and more.

Participating high school student interns will gain hands-on experience as they work alongside Harbor Department staff. The program lasts six weeks, from June 27 through Aug. 5. Students must have reliable transportation to and from the internship. Interns are paid and work up to 30 hours per week. Schedules will vary depending on the division they are assigned to.
