Internships and Student Positions

Student Interns (Non-Paid/Volunteer Position): Individuals who are either currently enrolled in an accredited college, university, community college, or high school.  They are engaged in experiential learning in the workplace in return for academic/course credit or are engaging in a program about learning in a profession under the supervision of an appropriate Department supervisor or manager for a period not to exceed 12 months in duration.

Student Assistant (Civil Service Position):  Designed for undergraduate college students performing pre-professional duties, Student Assistants should perform technical or administrative work, rather than clerical work.  The work assigned to Student Assistants must be related to their college curriculum and/or academic goals.  Positions in which the duties are predominately clerical in nature cannot be approved as Student Assistants.  Instead, the Human Resources Management Division (HRMD) will explore other alternatives such as Seasonal Clerk or Youth Aid to meet the hiring supervisor’s short-term clerical staffing needs.

Graduate Student Assistant (Civil Service Position):  Available for individuals who have graduated from college and who are current students working toward an advanced degree in a professional field.  Graduate Student Assistants perform entry-level professional work; they should not be assigned clerical duties.
