GovLoop - Knowledge Network for Government

I was recently contacted by a MPA student looking for any resources on gov't-related summer internship.

Her ideal was federal government but she said open to all angles (state/local gov, gov't related nonprofits and consulting companies)

Any suggestions?

Not sure if or how many Federal agencies are hiring for the summer but I recommend checking the new Pathways recruitment search on USAJOBS - https://www.usajobs.gov/StudentsAndGrads. If they are planning to hire summer interns, here is where you would find them. As of today, there are 110 vacancy announcements.

Great link - will share.

Any suggestions on state/local level?

Likely each state has it's own website.  In Minnesota it is http://www.careers.state.mn.us/  Search on the term "internships" or "student workers".

FCN has been tweeting about opportunities at @FedCommNetwork.

Here's a recent one: @FedCommNetwork

 At the local government level look for jobs labled as short term duration or extra-hire, typically they are the entry level jobs.  Otherwise start networking, that's how we get the majority of our interns and is how I started 20 years ago.
