The City of Summit is continuing its successful unpaid internship program for the seventh year in a row. Originally starting in the Department of Community Services (DCS), it has now expanded to other departments within City Hall.
Interviews are taking place now for those college students majoring in political science, business, or communications/marketing and who are interested in adding project management to their resumes. Students are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week for at least four to six weeks this summer.
After graduating from college, former intern and Summit resident Ayse Unver said, “I'm convinced that all of the subsequent jobs that I've gotten are largely because of the summer I worked with for the Department of Community Services. So even though that summer was unpaid, the experience was truly priceless.”
Other alumni of the program have been accepted into the White House internship program, a student program hosted by Google Inc., and a Goldman Sachs Undergraduate program, among other exciting academic and professional opportunities.
“We have had the privilege of hosting some outstanding students in this internship program. Working with these students has been a wonderful experience and while they are gaining experience for their resume, the City has benefitted from the enthusiasm and energy that they bring to City Hall,” said Beth Kinney, Director of Community Services, who oversees the internship program.
There are a limited number of slots left to participate in this program. Internship may extend into the fall for those students who attend local colleges.
