Current Student Interns

WELCOME TO THE COUNTY OF RIVERSIDE!



  I am happy to welcome you to the County of Riverside. I sincerely believe the Student Internship Program contributes to the dynamic pool of County employees by introducing bright, talented, motivated employees.

Riverside County covers 7,208 square miles and has been among the fastest growing areas in the United States during the past 50 years. As the 4th most populous county in California, and the 11th most populous county in the United States, we provide services to over 2.3 million residents. We are constantly adapting and improving our way of business to provide the best possible service to our residents.


Riverside County will continue to attract new residents and we need flexible, innovative thinkers to help shape our growth. You are now part of this exciting endeavor. Take this opportunity to explore all that the County of Riverside has to offer and at the same time, uncover and refine your strengths, interests, and aspirations.

As an intern, you will assist us in creating a model county government. In return, you will gain valuable experience in any of our 40-plus diverse departments. Although we hope that once your internship comes to an end you will continue your career with us, the knowledge you gain here will help you launch your career wherever you may choose to go.

Thank you for joining us in creating a brighter future for us all.
