MALIBU—The city of Malibu will begin accepting applications for its Student Intern Program from August 11 through September 9, according to a press release from the city of Malibu. Eligible applicants must be currently enrolled in high school, or be undergraduate or graduate students in college. The number of interns accepted will vary based on the department and available working space, Heather Glaser, Acting City Clerk/Student Intern Supervisor, told Canyon News in an email.
The Student Intern Program aims to expose students to public service and promote career interest in local government. Students will be able to enhance their professional skills and competence. The city benefits from the skills and fresh perspectives that student interns bring.
“Interns can learn a great deal about the department to which they are assigned, as well as other departments they may assist during the program,” Glaser told Canyon News. “They are exposed to public service and the inner workings of local government. They can better define their career interest in local government while enhancing professional skills and competence. They have the opportunity to bring fresh perspective and ideas to the City.”
The interns are used in various city departments including Administrative Services, City Clerk’s Office, Environmental Sustainability, Parks and Recreation, Planning and Public Works. Students will have the opportunity to work on administrative assignments and special projects. Glaser indicated to Canyon News that job availability for interns once the program is complete depends on what open positions are available.
Interviews for the Student Intern Program are scheduled for the week of September 19. The students accepted into the intern program will start the week of September 26.
