Kitsap food policy intern needed

The Kitsap County Commissioners’ Office seeks a college student to work with Kitsap Food Policy Council staff.

The intern will help create a database inventory of Kitsap food system assets; assist with data collection, entry and analysis; research and produce special project requests as needed; organize and summarize information to create documents; and prepare a user manual to accompany the database.

The intern candidate should have an interest in food systems, business and policy, be enthusiastic and articulate. Outstanding research, organizational, and communication abilities are a must, as are excellent computer skills including database management and use of Microsoft Office programs. A college student preferred but enrollment in a college program is not required.

This internship will provide practical experience in the public sector including interaction with citizens and elected officials and is an excellent opportunity to build a resume, develop career skills, network with professionals and explore career options.

The start date is as soon as possible, but the schedule is flexible, preferably two days per week up to 10 hours per week through the summer or longer. For more information on this internship, contact Kitsap County Volunteer Services at 360-337-4650 or rpirtle@co.kitsap.wa.us.
