Oakland County, Michigan
The Oakland County Health Division is currently seeking environmental health students for summer internships in 2012. The internships will begin in mid-May and run through the end of July.
Applications for the Student Sanitarian positions will be taken on-line through Monday, February 27.
The positions are now posted on the Oakland County website. See www.oakgov.com. Click on the “Jobs” button on the top of the page. Then click “Apply for Job” on the right. Click on “Job Postings” and scroll down to, “Summer Student Sanitarian.” Follow the instructions from there.
The website is the sole method of applying. A letter of enrollment from your advisor or other proof of enrollment is required. Applicants that have an out of state license must submit their driving record or driver’s history from that state.
Telephone interviews will be conducted later to assist our selection process.
Oakland County is located in Southeast Michigan, with approximately 1.2 million residents. We have a mixture of city and rural landscapes. We are the headwaters to six watersheds. We have approximately 400 lakes. An internship here exposes the student to a variety of programs in local environmental health including: Shadowing staff conducting food service establishment inspections, on-site sewage disposal system permitting, and drinking water well program inspections. Training is given for conducting public swimming pool inspections and collecting water samples for the bathing beach program. Arrangements can be made for low-cost housing at a local university.
Thank you for your interest in Oakland County Health Division’s environmental health summer internship program.
