The County of Yolo is currently recruiting for college students to participate in our College Intern Program. The College Intern Program is a year round program, with priority being given to college students that are earning their first undergraduate degree. Internships may be part-time or full-time, depending on the department’s needs, and are designed to recruit and train college students for skilled, professional and administrative careers in local government by providing an opportunity for them to become familiar with the practical application of courses being studied.
Participants in this program will be given defined projects at their assigned County department with a defined timeframe for their completion. The work of interns is intended to supplement – not supplant – the work that would be done by a regular County employee. As the County budget will not allow for paid internships, the County will work with program participants who may be able to earn academic credits from their College or University. It will be the Intern’s responsibility to find out what the College/University requirements are to earn those credits and communicate that information to the County in order to coordinate that partnership.
Please click here for more information about the internship opportunities that are currently available.
1. Students must be enrolled in an accredited two or four year college or university with at least a sophomore standing at the time of entry into the intern position; and
2. Be enrolled in at least six college quarter or semester units throughout the duration of the internship in order to remain eligible for the Program.
Students shall provide proof of enrollment at the start of each new term. Any break in enrollment status for longer than six months shall render the intern ineligible for the College Intern Program.
Students earning their first undergraduate degree will be given first priority for any available internships.
Interested students will be asked to undergo an application process in response to any internship opportunity that has been advertised as available. This process includes completing an online application and supplemental questionnaire. Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis, and those applicants who are eligible to participate in the program will be invited to attend a mandatory orientation as a next step in the selection process. Once an eligible applicant has attended the mandatory orientation, Human Resources will be able to forward their application to any department(s) with an available internship that would be the best match based on the requirements of the internship, the applicant’s education and career interests/previous volunteer pursuits.
Department Intern Supervisors receive the applications of intern candidates that have been pre-screened by Human Resources. The department will extend interview invitations to those candidates who are best qualified for the project.
If a department internship project requires the intern to handle sensitive and confidential matters, the department may require a live scan fingerprinting clearance and/or other pre-employment testing prior to an intern’s placement in the assignment.
Internship opportunities will be available until filled.
