Join an internship program focused on you!

Here at the City of Morgantown, we don’t believe in making interns do busy work or menial tasks. We’re not just another awesome line on your resume, although we do make your resume look better. Our internships are a chance to apply your knowledge in a real-world setting. This is more than just an internship; you will have the opportunity to truly make an impact on this community and all the people around you.

We are not looking to hire based on past experience. Instead, we are more focused on your character, attitude, and desire to learn. We believe internships are meant to give you experience and help prepare you for your future career. If you’re ready to learn, grow, and be part of an awesome team, then keep on reading!


Flexible schedule

You can expect to work 5 -10 hrs per week. When and how you work those hours are up to you (to an extent). We know you are busy, and finding time can be tricky. That is why we offer a customizable schedule based on your needs. 

Do great work and get paid for it

No matter which internship you choose, we are focused on giving you the tools and training you need to do great work. We value the work you do for us and think you deserve to be compensated for it. All internships offered are paid.

Receive valuable mentorship

Every intern is assigned a mentor in addition to their manager. Your mentor is there to help you every step of your internship to ensure you develop the skills you’re looking for and get the experience you need.
