WEST CHESTER (March 14) – State Senator Andy Dinniman encouraged high school and college students interested in obtaining an internship with a Pennsylvania State Agency to request a copy of the 2016 Guide to Summer Internship Programs.
The publications, which are filled with important information on dozens of internship programs with various state agencies, are available at Dinniman’s West Chester District Office at One North Church Street or online here.
“An internship in one of the Commonwealth’s agencies is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about careers in state government, develop their skills and prepare for the future,” Dinniman said. “If you are in high school or college and looking for an internship in public service, I encourage you to review the guide and see what opportunities are available.”
The guides include background and contact information for internship opportunities with state agencies like the Attorney General’s Office, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, among others.
Dinniman also urged interested students to act now as many of the programs have springtime application deadlines.
“Don’t delay as many of these programs are highly competitive and have upcoming application deadlines,” he said.
