Careers and Internships

College is not the only option after high school and may not be the best fit for every student. However, we do encourage students to pursue some form of education after high school in order to have more options in the work field.  


These options include getting a certificate or technical diploma from a two-year school, starting an apprenticeship program, or doing a public-service training program. We at the College and Career Centers can help students with all of these options. Please come in and meet with an advisor if you would like to pursue one of these options, and read below for more information about each.

  Technical Diplomas or Certificate Programs

Apprenticeships are a way to learn a trade or occupation — from a professional in that field — by doing the job while earning a salary.


An internship in Milwaukee Public Schools is a situation in which a high school student works for an employer for a specific period of time to learn about a particular industry or occupation. Activities undertaken by interns may include

  • special projects,
  • a sample of tasks from different jobs, or
  • tasks from one specific job.

Internships provide opportunities for students to obtain direct exposure to different careers in a structured, paid or unpaid work setting. Learn more about an MPS internship here.

  Public-Service Training Programs

If you are interested in working in public service, such as being a police officer, firefighter, or postal carrier, you should consider a public-service training program. This can be the first step to a career in one of these services and a way to start earning a salary right out of high school. To learn more about each, click on the links below:
