My name is Lev Boonin, a Public Policy major at Drexel University and the current Policy Intern in the Policy Office of the PA Department of Transportation. We are preparing to begin the search for our next group of interns here in the PennDOT Policy Office for the summer of 2018 and hope we might recruit one of your students. The program is open to both graduate and undergraduate students. It offers exciting opportunities in the fields of transit, safety, urban development, and infrastructure and technology, with projects addressing federal infrastructure and funding issues, automated vehicle technology, alternative fuel vehicles, and a variety of mobility topics and challenges.
Interns in our Policy Office are full time paid members of PennDOT. Students must commit to at least 10 weeks (12 weeks preferable) of work and be a registered student during this period. The Policy Office is located within PennDOT’s Executive Office at the Keystone Building in Harrisburg’s Capital Complex. Our interns have come from schools such as Carnegie-Mellon University, Franklin and Marshall, Drexel University, Temple University and Lafayette College. The Policy Office is keenly interested in recruiting students who embody ethnic and gender diversity. Qualifying candidates will be interviewed by Policy Director Roger Cohen.
If you believe that you know of students who may be interested and capable of working in our Policy Office, please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1) A CV from the student
2) A cover letter stating the student’s relevant areas of interest
Please let your students know we are recruiting, and if any are interested, to contact me at once, as we are eager to recruit the best and brightest you have for the possibility of working in our office.
we would like if all applicants were to send in their CV and cover letters by the 24th of February.
