There are many opportunities to intern at DHS in both paid and unpaid positions. If you are interested in interning at DHS, please send your name, contact information, resume, and the Division you are interested in interning with to email@example.com. Many of our interns go on to work full-time for the Department and have long careers of public service with the agency.
“Prior to my internship with DHS, I had primarily considered the non-profit world as a career path that would align with my core values. My internship experience with DHS not only provided an excellent education about state government but also introduced me to a wider range of professional opportunities as well as a vast network of committed public servants. It was a critical stepping-stone that introduced me to the field of child welfare, which is now both my chosen profession and my passion!”
