A new opportunity has become available for college students who would like to learn more about local government.
Prince William County is starting its first internship program, according to a release from the Communications Office.
Between May 20 and July 11, the selected interns will have a chance to strengthen various skills. They will also receive networking opportunities, leadership training, and hands-on experience.
“This program will play a significant role in unlocking the potential of our future leaders by providing them with practical experience in public service and expanding their knowledge,” County Executive Chris Shorter said in a release. “It is also critical in creating a diverse talent pipeline of individuals who have a passion to serve, which will ultimately help to better serve our community.”
More than 30 departments make up the Prince William County government, which has about 6,000 employees.
Those interested in the paid internship program may complete an application, which is due on March 16. It can be found on the county’s website.
