ACCG Accepting Fall and Spring
Georgia County Internship Program Applications from Counties

The Georgia County Internship Program (GCIP) is recruiting counties to participate in the fall and spring semester program. To date, over 190 college and graduate students have interned in 50 counties.

These students have assisted counties by creating and updating websites, performing GIS mapping, updating personnel guides, conducting energy audits, creating and updating record management plans, providing on-air talent, scripts, and film footage for county television stations, and much, much more.

If you are interested in an unfunded or county funded internship position for your county, please visit the GCIP website at and download the Employer Application under the Employer tab on the front page of the website.

Don’t miss out on recruiting the next generation of county employees!
