Interns with the Boston Urban Mechanics Program will have the chance to be "urban mechanics" and learn first-hand the challenges and rewards of public service in one of the nation's most innovative city governments, led by Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino.
Boston Urban Mechanics interns will have the opportunity to not only gain valuable professional experience in municipal government but to provide useful contributions that will help the City to deliver a high level of service to neighborhoods and residents.
Opportunities exist to take on projects related to policy and legislation, the environment, budgeting, and much more. Depending on department need the City of Boston will have internship opportunities available during the summer, spring and fall semesters.
In addition to a rewarding work experience, interns will participate in an orientation at the beginning of their time at City Hall. During the course of the internship, students will have opportunities to participate in seminars, social events and networking sessions, not only with other interns but with city officials and civic leaders in Boston.
If you are an undergraduate or graduate student interested in getting involved in a challenging and rewarding work experience than please apply today.
I worked as an intern in the Development Review Department at the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the summer prior to my senior year in college. This internship proved to be a great opportunity for me as I was offered a permanent position at the BRA after graduation.
I have been working in the same department within Economic Development for the past 7 ½ years, and was promoted to Deputy Director for Development Review in 2006. I currently manage a staff of ten Project Managers and oversee the permitting process for all projects within the City of Boston.Read About More
