The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Intern Program is currently accepting applications. Applicants must be currently enrolled college students (full or part-time).
Intern positions are unpaid. However, educational credit can be earned if such a program is offered by the applicant’s school. The student should work with the school to complete necessary documentation to receive educational credit.
Interns can participate in functions at the Central Office in downtown Nashville, as well as the eight Environmental Field Offices across the state (Memphis, Jackson, Nashville, Cookeville, Columbia, Knoxville, Johnson City and Chattanooga). Internship opportunities are based upon the needs of the hiring division and the specific work location.
Fall, Spring and Summer opportunities are available, depending on the needs of the specific program areas. While the durations are flexible, interns who can make a 3-4 month commitment at 20-40 hours a week may generally be given preference.
Please submit a cover letter and resume to Carol Farragher at Carol.Farragher@TN.gov. In the cover letter, the applicant must specify their field of study, desired location, dates available and the desired outcome of the internship. If you are considered for a position, you will be asked to provide proof of identification and unofficial transcripts as well as complete a state employment application. If you have any questions, please call (615) 532-0200.
