County Executive's Internship Program

County Executive's Internship Program Anne Arundel County's Internship Program is designed to identify and develop the future talents of 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. 

Anne Arundel County Interns utilize their academic knowledge and skills to support and contribute to the primary assignments and projects of their internship. To ensure meaningful work and growth, specific objectives are established at the departmental level, and the progress of the internship is periodically assessed against these objectives.

Through Anne Arundel County's Internship Program, students are granted valuable exposure to the practical aspects of business and public administration. This program enables them to establish professional connections, gain firsthand experience, and potentially shape their career path.
