New Student Intern Pool

In addition to individual internship opportunities which are listed on the lower portion of this page, DHR has developed a new and innovative Student Intern Pool.  This new process allows students interested in gaining valuable municipal government experience to submit their profile which is kept in a pool of pre-qualified candidates for consideration for available positions. 

Citywide Student Intern Pool
