1 Maryland Department of the Environment Internship – Apply by April 22
2 CivicSolar Sales and Support Job – Apply by April 18
The first position is an internship with Maryland’s Department of the Environment. The Department has sponsored many interns that have tackled a range of issues, including matters related to greenhouse gases, water pollution, and radiation used in medical facilities. The summer intern program provides students with experience working in environmental management. Interns applying to this position will be assigned to the Wastewater Permits program, where they’ll be working on projects that seek to protect the State’s water resources, and will witness first-hand how pollution prevention affects local waters.
Within MDE, you will be assigned a mentor who seeks to enrich your experience of the internship. You will also participate in weekly seminars, lectures and field trips to gain insight into the breadth of environmental programs that MDE manages. These experiences provide an excellent introduction into the environmental and public issues that Maryland is facing. Not only will you gain experience in how government agencies operate to protect the environment, but you’ll also gain a better understanding of the importance of environmental preservation. You can apply to the internship on the Bridge until the April 22nd deadline.
