An internship with the City of Greenville offers the opportunity to learn the complexities of municipal government and contribute to the management of projects important to the operation and growth of the City.  The City Manager's Office Management Internship may be a paid or unpaid internship, may be completed for course credit, and may consist of up to 400 contact hours generally in the May-August timeframe.

Program Purpose

The internship’s purpose is to give graduate students with an expressed interest in local government management the chance to explore the field in a work setting.  This program allows interns to take what they have learned about public service, management, and research in the classroom, and apply those lessons to significant City projects in order to further prepare for a career in the public sector.

The City of Greenville benefits from the projects completed by the Management Intern, while the Management Intern benefits from the knowledge and guidance of experienced local government staff.
