Information Technology Internship Program

In the spring of 2015 the County’s first Information Technology Internship Program (ITIP) was created.  While the internship is unpaid, it offers an amazing opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a large variety of technology.  Interns within the ITIP will also have learning opportunities to help them apply concepts from their schoolwork to real world practices we utilize within the department.

The ITIP program typically has two positions.  A technology support position and a website/graphic design position.  While the main portion of the program runs over the summer season, the ITIP offers year-round internship and job shadowing opportunities.

If you are interested in applying to the ITIP please e-mail your resume to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Internship candidates must be at least 18 years of age.  There is no age restriction on job shadowing opportunities.
