CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — There’s no substitute for experience when it comes to preparing for a career, and Chesterfield County is inviting college students to apply for its 2022 internship program and get a first-hand look at how local government operates.
During this 10-week internship, which runs May 20 through July 25, interns will be introduced to local government operations and have a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge through meaningful learning experiences. Interns will also have the chance to meet with county leaders, work directly with county employees, attend training and participate in teambuilding exercises to complement their experience-based learning.
Interested applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited institution and have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.8. Interns are selected based on departmental needs and the student’s field of study and experience.
Applications will be accepted through February 20. The intern pay rate is $12 per hour for undergraduate students and $14 per hour for graduate students.
