    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.

    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”.

    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.
