Prospective Interns

The goal of the Municipal Internship Program is to give post-secondary graduates practical management skills and experience in all aspects of local government. The County of Wetaskiwin has hosted fourteen (14) interns since the program was re-introduced in 2002, with a wide ranging background of educational pursuits and experience. Each Intern has brought a valuable and unique set of skills and perspectives to the organization.

There are three (3) "streams" within the Internship Program:

  • Administrative--a one (1) year program, with the possibility of an extension to two (2) years, that provides Interns with a broad overview of all departments and general operations of local government.
  • Finance--a one (1) year program, with the possibility of an extension to two (2) years, that provides Interns with an opportunity to gain in-depth experience within the County's Finance Department, while also exposing the Intern to other areas of local government.
  • Planning--a two (2) year program that provides Interns with an opportunity to gain in-depth experience within the County's Planning and Development Department, while also exposing the Intern to other areas of local government.
