Each summer, the Department of Human Resources sponsors the Chesterfield County Summer Internship Program to provide students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and a realistic preview of what it is like to work in local government. The county is committed to administering a successful, efficient, and inclusive program that will allow interns to make a positive contribution to the community while gaining valuable work experience in their field of study during the summer.  During the 10-week program, interns will gain professional experience in their assigned county department, learn about the mission and vision of Chesterfield County, and experience networking and professional development opportunities.
