Dozens of city agencies offer undergraduate and graduate internship positions. The internships include paid and volunteer positions, and all give specific and valuable experience to anyone considering a civil service career or looking to broaden their knowledge and experience in a specific field of study.
Any graduate student enrolled in a graduate school program may apply for those internships being offered for graduate students, while those being offered for undergraduate students must be enrolled in an accredited undergraduate institution. Specific eligibility requirements are listed in the job description and might include a particular college major/area of study or amount of prior experience. Also required in most applications is a cover letter, updated resume, and transcript from the college, university or law school in which the applicant is currently enrolled, but different departments may require different documents in their application process. For anyone currently living outside of the city, there are living arrangements in Manhattan that can be made through the internship program.
