HUNTSVILLE – The City of Huntsville has an offer for college students looking for what it calls “a valuable and enriching career experience.”

Huntsville has announced openings for its Summer Intern Program for applicants ages 19 or older with a high school diploma or GED.

Students or recent graduates from accredited colleges or universities can apply. The application period runs through 6 p.m. March 13.

The eight-week program will accept up to 10 interns. Interns will be part-time employees who earn $12.51 per hour and work up to 29 hours per week, depending on the department’s needs.

Internships span various City departments including:

  • Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Community Development
  • Engineering
  • Finance
  • Parking & Public Transit
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Planning
  • Traffic Engineering

“The City of Huntsville provides exceptional learning opportunities for driven college students seeking professional and personal development,” said Kenny Anderson, director of the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, which partners with the city’s Human Resources Department on the internship program. “Chances like this are rare, yet they can significantly shape a student’s future through on-the-job training, networking and growth.”

The program runs June 3-July 26 and offers on-the-job training and networking opportunities. Interns work Monday through Thursday, with hours determined by department heads.
