Internships : Internship Opportunity

Company:Queens District Attorney's Office
Our internship programs offer an unparalleled opportunity to contribute to the work of the office while at the same time gaining valuable experience. Both the Summer Internship Program as well as the program for students during the fall and spring semesters share many features:
• All internship programs are on a volunteer basis. We make every effort to assist potential interns seeking grants, fellowships or academic credit.
• Our Intake Bureau does accept interns for evening and weekend positions. We will attempt to accommodate those students who may have scheduling requirements.
• We offer opportunities in all bureaus. We ask successful applicants for input in their bureau assignment, and we do our best to assign the intern to one of their expressed preferences. In fact, candidates who are invited for an interview should be prepared to discuss bureau assignments.
• Interns remain in the same bureau during a summer or a semester. As we expect that our interns will be making a valuable contribution – no “make work” assignments – we feel that both the intern and our office will therefore receive the greatest benefit by concentrating on a single bureau.
