The internship is a great opportunity to get a unique perspective into state government, gain a better understanding of what goes into public service, and experience first-hand the duties of a governor and the governor’s staff.

The Office of the Governor offers 3 different internship placements: A general internship, an internship with our constituent services team, and an internship with our communications team.
