The Department of Finance is accepting applications through January 14, 2022 for multiple Graduate Student Assistant positions in Sacramento, California. Finance is offering a paid 12-16 week summer internship opportunity for graduate-level students. Interns will have opportunities to interact and network with fellow interns throughout the duration of the internship. This interaction will provide positive learning benefits and opportunities for information sharing. During the summer, interns will independently gather, evaluate and analyze information on an assigned project. Interns perform analysis on policy or statewide issues and apply analytical techniques learned in their graduate programs to a practical issue facing Finance or the State of California. Interns will observe professional staff in action; attend staff meetings, lectures, or other unit activities; and may attend hearings and other proceedings. At the completion of the assignment, interns will complete a deliverable which can include a formal presentation, issue paper, and/or internal memo describing the analysis, including findings and recommendations. Deliverables may be incorporated into a larger work product that Finance may produce.
