The Public Summer Service Internship Program is designed for area college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in the public sector or who wish to gain practical, real-world experience in various fields. These fields include finance, engineering, public health, environmental, social services, information technology and public safety.

College interns will work 30 hours a week for eight weeks from June through August at $15 per hour. Some of the work interns will be handling will vary within each department.

Interns will answer phones, assist with issuing permits, conduct research and work on special projects to help maintain trails or communications with residents on various issues.

“Our internship program plays a key role in exposing students to the public service sector and gives students the edge they need when entering the workforce,” said Vigeant. “I am proud of this program and the benefits it continues to provide to our interns, and I hope it encourages our youth to consider careers in municipal government.”

The program is open to all area college students enrolled in various courses of study. Preference is given to Marlborough residents, although all interested college students are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is Wednesday, April 26.
