The Partnership’s Public Service Internship Program gives current students and recent graduates the opportunity to develop their professional skills while helping transform how government works.
Our interns do substantive, meaningful work that is integral to our day-to-day operations, programs and activities. While duties vary across our teams, interns may help plan events, research, write and work with outside partners, including federal agencies and colleges and universities.
Interns have opportunities to grow personally as well as professionally through workshops and training sessions geared toward students and young professionals. We offer the following compensation (less applicable taxes and deductions):
- Full-time interns with an undergraduate or graduate degree will receive $1,000/month
- Full-time interns who are currently undergraduate students will receive $800/month
- Part-time intern compensation will be prorated accordingly
Apply by Friday, June 30 at this link: https://ourpublicservice.org/about-us/internship-program.php

The new topics are:
- Environmental Science & Sustainability – There are many jobs in the environmental and sustainability fields beyond policy work. Within the private sector, there are opportunities in the timber industry, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation organizations. Within the government, there is work available at the local, state and federal levels that focus on forests, water, and wildlife.
- Neuroscience – The “Brain Sciences,” or neuroscience, encompass a wide range of career paths centralized in the research and medical professions, and now permeating across multiple new fields in recent years. Through studying the brain and the nervous system, those who choose a career in neuroscience seek to understand how neurons interact and how these interactions impact behavior. Neuroscience intersects psychology, science, medicine, and impacts the legal system, education, and even marketing. Clearly, neuroscience presents multiple pathways for you to consider.
- Law & Paralegal – The law profession encompasses a variety of career fields some of which require an advanced degree where others do not. Those interested in the field of law typically pursue careers as lawyers, paralegals/legal assistants, criminal justice (law enforcement, probation officers, and correction officers), social work/justice (family law, juvenile law, elder law and child protective services), public policy, federal government, protective services, detective services and more.
- Business Intelligence, Analytics & Data Science – Every time a customer interacts with a computerized system, whether at a Grocery Store, Online Store, or Social Media site, data is created and stored in a data solution system. Tools then convert this data into metrics (known as analytics) that assess consumer behavior. Analytic professionals interpret analytical data and utilize statistics, predictive modeling, and managerial strategies to drive business decisions. Analytics are used in nearly every industry. Marketing companies use analytics to measure and analyze performance of different initiatives, financial firms use analytics to analyze investments and forecast future scenarios, charter schools use analytical data to inform teaching practices, and major movie studios use analytics to project ticket sales.
