The City of Summit is continuing its successful unpaid college internship program for the tenth consecutive year. Applications will be accepted beginning March 20 through April 21. Interviews will be scheduled in early May for selected applicants.

College students majoring in political science, public administration, business, engineering, or communications and marketing are encouraged to apply for the program. Participants will be able to add significant project management experience to their resumes. Students are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week for four weeks during the summer.

Alumni of the City’s internship program have secured positions in the White House internship program and with the US State Department, as well as paid positions at Google, Tesla Motors and Goldman Sachs.

“The City of Summit internship program is an excellent way for college students to gain practical, on-the-job experience,” explains Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “Our interns are able to get directly involved in municipal projects and learn from top city officials and department experts.”

There are a limited number of positions available in the summer internship program. If interested, please send a resume to pressoffice@cityofsummit.org. The deadline to apply is 4/21/17.
