Do virtual internships exist in local government / public administration?
Suggestions on internships / gaining experience while holding a full time job?
I gained valuable experience working in higher education with program management, staff leadership, budgeting, and several other areas. However, reflecting back on my life I would like to return to my original goal of someday becoming a City Administrator. I am seeking advice on the questions above. I am willing to use my vacation / sick time to take time off if necessary, however, how does someone with work experience approach requesting and finding internships? Most of the internships I see are oriented toward current students.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
