Austin Parks and Recreation Department internships provide that critical link between the academic setting and the work environment.  They enable students to explore areas of interest and apply their knowledge to determine the appropriate work environments that best match their skills and abilities.

Our intern program is currently on hold. Please submit your interest form and we will be in touch once we resume our program.

The Department is looking for individuals who can solve problems; work as a member of a team; and be proactive and creative in their work.  Our interns don’t learn by watching, they learn by getting involved.  For more information, contact Parks and Recreation Department Human Resources at 512-974-6733 or
