Explore Your Dream Job: DSST's Professional Internship Program

Being a high school student is stressful, and the pressure to study to go to your top college and reach your dream job can make it even more so. On top of all of that, thinking about choosing a career path can be incredibly daunting, especially as a 16-year-old.
