City of Lansing

City Council Intern

May - August 2021 • Lansing, MI

What I liked

Friendly staff and great experiences! Good start to figure out if you want to work in an office environment. Very fun people to work with! They are super understanding and so sweet. I also love the tasks I was doing for the City, very rewarding to know how your work is positively impacting the Citizens of Lansing. I wrote documents I mock wrote for assignments (such as ordinances, resolutions, press releases, etc), it was very cool!

What I wish was different

More professional development and feedback!


Embrace the internship and take advantage of the opportunities! Always say yes to the assignments so that you can gain the experience, and don't be afraid to ask for more or if you have any questions.
