Barnstable County is working for you.

Internships

In 2017 Barnstable County launched the “On Roads to Opportunity Internship Program’ placing students in unpaid internships in one of our many departments, offering students a great way to contribute locally and gain valuable professional experiences in a variety of contexts.  

 

Jaclyn, a former intern at Children’s Cove says, “I initially applied for this internship because I rarely see opportunities in my field that are located on the Cape and I knew I wanted to do something to help my community. I applied and interviewed – not fully grasping the extent to which this was going to benefit me as a person, as well as my career development. The staff at Children’s Cove all took me under their wing and allowed me to explore the different positions and opportunities that they provide.”

Jamie, who completed an internship in Communications helping to redesign a website at Barnstable County shares: “I gained the valuable skills of communicating with a “client” through setting up meetings to discuss progress and design ideas. In my university courses, I often design programs myself, but this gave me the opportunity to create a product to someone else’s specifications.”
“The knowledge I have learned through this experience with Barnstable County will follow me as I work to reach my various professional goals.  I strongly recommend any person interested in applying for an internship with Barnstable County to do so.” – Anika, former Resource Development Intern
