The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is encouraging students who have completed at least two years of college to apply for summer job opportunities through DEC's annual internship program. The program offers multiple part-time unpaid internships in the fields of engineering, science, planning, sustainability, law, community outreach, social media, and more.
"DEC's summer internship program connects the Capital Region's
college students with opportunities to learn about future careers and
garner professional experience," DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said. "By
working closely with DEC's engineers, scientists, and other
professionals, we hope that our interns are inspired to protect New
York's public health and the environment as the next generation of
conservationists and dedicated public servants."
Candidates must submit applications by April 20, 2017. The majority
of the internships are located at DEC's downtown Albany office.
Prospective interns are encouraged to carefully read the qualifications
for each job to determine whether they meet the requirements before
submitting an application.
Those accepted into the six-week summer internship program will have
the chance to work alongside a team of highly trained and skilled DEC
employees who regulate and manage New York State natural resources and
the environment. Placements are made within one of DEC's divisions, and
interns will be assigned to specific program areas such as public lands,
air or water quality, fiscal and personnel management, legal counsel,
or environmental education. Every effort is made to match the intern's
career interests, experience, and field of study with the needs of and
the experiences offered by each program.
