Internship Program

Gain Experience in Local Government

Each summer, the Department of Human Resources sponsors the Chesterfield County college summer internship program to provide students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and a realistic preview of what it is like to work in local government. The county is committed to administering a successful, efficient and inclusive program that will allow interns to make a positive contribution to the community while gaining valuable work experience in their field of study. During the 10-week program, interns will experience networking and professional development opportunities, gain professional experience in their assigned county department, and learn about the mission and vision of Chesterfield County.
