Internship Opportunities

The City of Concord Internship Program provides ungraduate and graduate college students with a compensated professional work experience that integrates education, career development and public service.

Through a competitive application process, qualified students in a full range of academic majors, are selected for internships in various City departments. Internship positions are based on the needs of the department and are designed to provide substantive and career-relevant learning experiences. In addition to developing practical workplace skills in a variety of professional areas, interns are effectively introduced to career options with the City of Concord and in public service.

While municipal government service experience is a valuable outcome of this internship program, the program's primary focus is to provide opportunities for students to build career-enhancing and leadership skills while benefiting from the municipal government experience. The City of Concord Internship Program makes an important contribution to the quality of the workforce and citizenry in our area.
