College students looking to get a leg-up in politics (or maybe just ask Mayor Michael Nutter about "Rappers Delight") have a chance to work with the mayor's office this coming summer.
The city is now accepting applications for its Mayor's Internship Program, a 10-week program that runs from June to August in which students will work on projects along side city officials.
During their tenure, Mayor’s Interns are assigned substantive projects and tasks providing research, administrative, and staff assistance to City officials in various departments across the City of Philadelphia municipal government. Interns are also provided the opportunity to learn about careers in government, hear from leaders in City government, and visit City facilities and operations. MIP offers real work experience while exposing participants to the diverse functions and operations of a large municipal government.
The deadline to apply is Feb 1. Check the website for more information.
