The city of Phoenix is recruiting nationwide for its annual Management Intern Program that begins June 28, 2004. The program offers one-year internships for individuals who have earned or completed all course work toward a master's degree in public administration, business administration or a related field.  In the past, the program has selected between two and four candidates annually.

One of the oldest and most respected municipal apprenticeship programs in the United States, Phoenix's program is designed to attract, develop and retain innovative individuals in local government. Selected interns will have the opportunity to observe city efforts to address some of its most pressing issues. By performing rotational assignments in the City Manager's Office, the Budget and Research Department, and departments providing direct public services, interns will experience a spectrum of municipal government roles and responsibilities. 

While the 2004 - 2005 salary schedule is not yet in place, the current management intern salary range is $31,325 to $46,654 plus a comprehensive benefit package that includes a moving allowance for candidates residing outside metro Phoenix.  Interns who successfully perform all duties assigned to a management intern are placed on the management assistant I eligible list at the conclusion of the year. Successful interns are highly recruited by city departments to fill available city jobs.

Since the program began in 1950, a number of the 167 participants have continued employment with the city after their internship year. Others have gone on to hold administrative positions in federal, state, county and other city governments, including many who are assistant city managers or city managers throughout the nation.

Call 602-262-6278 or visit to obtain an application.  Applications will be accepted until Friday, Jan. 30, 2004.  For more information about the program, contact the city's Budget and Research Department at 602-262-4800.
