County Manager’s Office 2010 Internship

San Mateo County has 5,600 employees that provide a wide range of services funded by a budget of over $1.7 billion.   The Office of the San Mateo County Manager oversees all County operations and includes three divisions:  Budget and Performance, Intergovernmental Affairs and Community Services.  The Manager’s Office is looking for an intern interested in public services and willing to work on a variety of projects.  Strong written and verbal communication skills are required.  Students that are excited about contributing to the community and interested in environmental sustainability are encouraged to apply.   

The 2010 internship will focus on three areas:

-Updating countywide performance measures
The County assesses the outcomes of our many programs by tracking a number of community based performance measures.  The intern will gather FY 2009/10 data and assess trends for the key measures we track.

-The SMCNews Blog
About 70,000 residents live in the unincorporated areas of the County, which dot the peninsula and include most of the land area west of the coastal mountains.  The County provides “city” types services to these residents and SMCNews is an information news site just for these residents.   The intern will review Board of Supervisors agendas and other documents and research and draft posts for the SMCNews. 

-Residential Energy Action Program
San Mateo County is part of Bay Area wide grant funded project to promote residential energy efficiency.  All 20 cities in the county are participating in this project.  The intern will work with project staff developing marketing materials, conducting presentations and coordinating trainings and other events to be held throughout the County.   

The internship will pay $12 an hour up to 40 hours a week, however total weekly hours are negotiable.  Although not required, there may be opportunities to attend and participate in evening and/or weekend meetings and do community presentations.
