The 2012 Maine State Government Summer Internship is now accepting applications from college students and state agencies. The deadline for student applications is March 12; the deadline for agency intern requests is March 5. Administered by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, the program is an opportunity for outstanding students to observe and participate in state government and for state agencies to benefit from the work performed by them. “Studies show that employability improves when applicants can show real professional experience along with a degree, which this program also provides,” says BJ Kitchin, information and communications coordinator for the program. In 2011, 34 students were selected and completed the program. Complete details are included on the program website.
