Local Government Internship Program

The City of Dinuba established the Local Government Internship program to provide college, university or graduate students with the opportunity to gain both academic and practical experience working in local government. Internships are paid and designed to provide participants the opportunity to apply academic skills to various real world assignments while under the employ of the City. Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the City of Dinuba and the exceptional services provided to the community.

Have you ever considered a career in local government? Are you familiar with the many facets of local government? Most people don’t consider local government as a career path nor, the vital services local government provides to communities.

If you are a college, university or graduate student who is interested in exploring the many facets of local government from the inside, consider an internship with the City of Dinuba.
