Spring 2014 Government/Public Relations Internship
Come intern with ASPCUF! Each semester we offer a paid internship in government and public relations for undergraduates attending a Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education university. The APSCUF internship is a great opportunity for a student who is interested in government, politics, public affairs, journalism, or communications. APSCUF interns must be professional, self-motivated, and skilled communicators. Our recent interns have gone on to jobs in the legislature, lobbying, and the news media.
We are currently seeking a junior or senior in political science, communications, journalism, or a related field to serve as a government relations/communications intern at the state APSCUF office building in Harrisburg. The student internship must be for academic credit under the supervision of a PASSHE university faculty member. The successful applicant should have strong knowledge of government workings, as well as excellent oral and written communication skills. APSCUF will pay $10 per hour and interns are expected to work 35 hours each week, Monday-Friday. Please note:
- The spring 2014 internship begins January 21, 2014, and concludes May 2, 2014. The application deadline for the spring 2014 internship is November 1, 2013.
