The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) is dedicated to cultivating future leaders, especially in the area of public service. That is why we developed a robust summer internship program focused on providing professional opportunities within the Department that utilize and build interns’ knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The application deadline for 2024 is March 15.
