County Executive's Internship Program
Anne Arundel County's Internship Program is designed to identify and develop the future talents of graduate and undergraduate students throughout Anne Arundel County. The internships are an extension of academic instruction and provide the opportunity to turn classroom instruction into practical application in the workplace.
Interns draw upon the knowledge and skills gained through their college coursework in order to assist in performing the principal assignments and/or projects of the internship. In order to encourage Anne Arundel County Interns to perform meaningful work, objectives are set and the progress of the Internship is regularly evaluated against these objectives.
Anne Arundel County's Internship Program provides students with an opportunity to have exposure to the real world of business and public administration, to develop contacts and to gain experience that may give direction to their professional life.
- County Executive Schuh is pleased to offer Internship opportunities for college undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in enhancing their academic and career pursuits, earning college credit for this learning experience as well as learning about Anne Arundel County government.
- Students will apply and be selected to participate in an internship in one (1) or more department(s) related to their field of study.
- If the student is pursuing academic credit the department will provide the intern with a learning experience and the opportunity to earn the necessary hours in order to receive college credit for this experience related to their field of study. The hours will be earned over a period which coincides with the college semester.
