State of North Carolina Internship Program Welcomes Class of Summer 2021 | Beaufort County Now | Program orientation begins May 24

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    RALEIGH, NC     Today, 71 students, representing 24 of North Carolina counties, will embark on a 10-week educational experience at one of North Carolina's state government agencies. For more than 50 years, the State of North Carolina Internship Program has provided state government work opportunities to North Carolina students attending a college, university, technical institute, or community college.

    "This internship program offers an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable work experience while learning about state government operations," said NC Department of Administration (DOA) Secretary Pamela B. Cashwell. "My hope is that these students will develop a passion for public service and come back to work for the State after graduation."

    On May 24, students participated in a virtual program orientation with Secretary Cashwell and members of the Internship Council Panel. The State of North Carolina Internship Program is coordinated by the DOA's Council for Women and Youth Involvement, offering college students across the state an opportunity to connect lessons learned in the classroom to potential career choices in public service.

    Last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, intern work assignments were strictly virtual. This year, the Program will continue its virtual format, allowing students to work remotely to gain practical workplace skills in a variety of professional areas ranging from public policy to tourism. Additionally, students will participate in virtual networking opportunities with state government leaders for career development.

    Summer interns are selected annually through a competitive process overseen by the NC Internship Council.

    For more information on the State of North Carolina Internship Program, please visit the NC Council for Women & Youth Involvement website.
