Seminole County’s Office of Emergency Management Internship Program offers a highly competitive opportunity for students and recent graduates to gain hands-on experience in emergency management public administration, emergency planning, emergency operations, communications, and community preparedness.
The internship experience should be one that strengthens an area(s) where the intern is lacking in real-world knowledge and experience. Students who intern with the Office of Emergency Management will be able to use the experience to build resumes, gain valuable experience in homeland security and emergency management principles, and gain entry into the emergency management / public administration field.
The internship should be at least three (3) months in length so the student can gain enough experience in the emergency management field to benefit him/her in the workplace.
The type of work performed will be dependent on the student’s requirements and the needs of the Office of Emergency Management at the time of the internship. The following projects will be offered to the intern to help the student gain a better understanding of emergency management and public administration:
Seminole County Office of Emergency Management will move the student around as much as possible within the organization to give the student as many experiences as is possible. In addition to highly substantive and meaningful projects, interns gain in-depth knowledge of the field by networking with emergency managers across the State and nation.
Since its inception in January 2005, highly qualified students have successfully obtained positions in emergency management and homeland security offices throughout the Country. To qualify for an internship program, please e-mail your resume and internship packet to the Office of Emergency Management (firstname.lastname@example.org).
