Special Projects GIS Internship

New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Internship Program

Special Projects GIS Internship

The special projects group of the State of New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) supports and assists the Commissioner with special projects.
The group uses maps and geographic analysis on a variety of projects throughout New Jersey. The unit is developing its GIS capabilities at this time. As an intern, you will actively contribute to this project, gaining useful experience of GIS in a range of planning, research and data management work.

A good understanding of ArcGIS 10 software is required. Demonstrated competence with cartographic work is also appreciated. Potential interns with skills or interest in contributing in any of the following areas are especially encouraged to apply: ArcObjects, metadata, data management, raster catalogs, excel and attribute joins and Arch GIS mapping.

Internships are part-time. For example, a typical internship could last for the fall semester, working one or two days per week at our Trenton Office. Internships are unpaid, but offer great opportunity for experience, networking and practical training.

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter and a map you prepared using ArcGIS as well as any additional supporting materials to rtessier@dca.state.nj.us. Please make the subject of your email your full name and the position for which you are applying. We kindly request no phone calls regarding this position.
