The Kansas City Section of the American Planning Association (KC APA), in partnership with the planning programs at UMKC, KU, K-State and Missouri State, invites you to participate in the 6th Annual Internship Fair to connect local planning students with planning practitioners and agencies who are interested in offering internship opportunities in summer 2017. Internships can be both paid or unpaid, but we do ask that organizations, whether public agencies, non-profits, or private firms, commit to a meaningful internship position of 20-40 hrs/wk so that our undergraduate and graduate planning students gain valuable work experience, develop strong relationships with planning professionals and mentors, and contribute to your organizations.
The internship fair will be held at UMKC, Pierson Auditorium on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 1:00-4:00pm.
If your firm/agency is interested in participating, please submit this form
by Friday, March 17 so that we can provide students with a list of the participating agencies and the types of available internship opportunities. 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 and between 10-15 employers. 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!
