DC is Your Home Away From Home!
WISH properties are ready for you to move right in to make DC your home
from day one! Each location is fully-furnished, so leave the housewares at home.
Here’s what you should bring…
Bedding and Towels (Just pack your suitcase and move in)
Electronic Devices: cell phone, computer, laptop, tablet. DC is a wireless city!
Work Clothes: Business attire will vary by your internship location so make sure you check. There is a difference between business casual and professional business dress codes! It is always recommended though to have at least one professional business suit/outfit for those special events.
Remember Washington D.C. has four seasons. “Spring Semester” starts in January! (coats, hats, gloves will be needed)
Comfortable shoes. We do a lot of walking in this town, and you can always change your shoes at work.
