Internships

We offer internship opportunities in a variety of fields throughout the state of Minnesota.

Many state agencies post their internship opportunities on this site and you can locate them by searching for a job and selecting "Intern/Student Worker" from the "Position Type" section.

For those agencies who do not post their opportunities on this site you may contact their human resource offices directly from the agency link on the right navigation.

Intern/Student Worker Defined

Intern appointments provide work opportunities and practical learning experiences to students to enhance their academic preparation and expose them to state government employment. In order to be hired for an intern appointment, the student must be receiving academic credit for the experience from his/her school.

Student Worker appointments are open to secondary or post-secondary students interested in working in state government. Unlike an internship appointment, the students do not have to be receiving academic credit, but they must maintain their student status.
