City of Maple Grove - Paid Internship

The City of Maple Grove is exploring adding a part-time (20 hours/week) paid internship this fall – starting in mid-September and running through mid-December (dates are flexible).  Here’s the basic deal:
  • Responsible for writing, editing and producing a City of Maple Grove “State of the Lakes” supplement to the city’s Spring Newsletter (and possibly Web landing page) that helps residents understand the value of the city’s 7 lakes and educates them on what needs to be done to keep them health.  Includes pulling content from the different area lake associations as well as writing articles about the city’s efforts.
  • Will work under the direction of the city staff as well as heads of the various lake associations.  I’ll also be available to this person for mentoring/direction. 
  • Roughly 20 hours a week for 3 months – pay is $10/hour (to be finalized, but this is the number they’re working with).
  • Candidates must have strong writing background and a demonstrated aptitude for environmental/science topics.  Should be a junior or senior with a communications major or minor.

The city is looking to vet 2-3 candidates, and has asked for help in finding them (which is why I’m reaching out to you).   If interested – or if you know of someone who is interested, please send a resume, cover letter and 3 representative writing samples to Matt Kucharski at the address below.
