7th Annual KC Metro Planning Internship Fair

The Kansas City Section of the American Planning Association (KC APA), in partnership with the planning programs at UMKC, KU, and K-State, invites you to participate in the 7th Annual Kansas City Metro Planning Internship Fair to connect local planning students with planning practitioners and agencies who are interested in offering internship or employment opportunities in summer 2018 and beyond. 

Internships can be paid or unpaid, but we do ask that your organizations, whether public agencies, non-profits, or private firms, commit to a meaningful internship position of 20-40 hrs/wk. Our undergraduate and graduate planning students should gain valuable work experience, develop strong relationships with planning professionals and mentors, and contribute to your organizations.

If your firm/agency is interested in participating, please contact sjaax@kcpublicschools.org by Friday, March 16.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Considering the internship fair for the first time?  Check out some of our stats -- Each year, the internship fair attracts 20-30 undergraduate and graduate students.  Employers are typically able to interview 10+ students during the fair, maximizing your time at the event. Over the last few years, not only have employers found strong internship candidates, but also full-time and contract positions have been filled due to connections made during the fair. 

We look forward to seeing you at the internship fair and thank you for your support of our next generation of planners!
