The City has internships available in the following areas:

  • Administration – ODEI; External Relations
  • Legal – City Attorney (Prosecution)
  • Music Office
  • Information Technology Services
  • Natural Resources
  • Parks & Recreation

This year’s program runs from June 5 to July 28. Internships are unpaid, and interns work Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., unless otherwise specified by the department.
