The New York State Department of Civil Service is offering approximately 500 new student internships for the upcoming Summer 2018 Session throughout state government. Student internships include opportunities in finance, environmental conservation, criminal justice, health care, engineering, and other professional disciplines.

A website, nysinternships.cs.ny.gov, allows applicants to view job descriptions, create profiles, specify occupational interests, and upload resumes, writing samples, and letters of recommendation. Students can apply for multiple internships at the same time.

The value of an internship goes beyond earning school credit—it compliments a student’s academic coursework by showing what skills are needed and how to be a part of a professional team,” said SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson.

A current list of available internships for the Summer 2018 Session is available by visiting: https://nysinternships.cs.ny.gov/nnyl/main/viewinternships.cfm. Internships will continue to be posted regularly to the Student Internship Portal until April 13. The deadline to apply is April 20.
