About California Governor's Office

Don’t be a “girly man!” Arnold Schwarzenegger is the governor of one of America’s most celebrated states, and he needs some sharp interns to help him govern from San Diego to San Francisco. Are you up for the task?

Interns work with the governor’s staff on everything from public policy issues to state politics. They can work in Sacramento or in the field offices during the summer or during the school year. Interns may work in the cabinet, press, constituent affairs, communications, special projects and executive writing units. Intern responsibilities range from administrative work to unit-specific duties, including attending cabinet hearings, assisting in the organization of press conferences and working with the public. Communications interns work on special events and must be available on Fridays for at least four hours.


Must be 18 years old, enrolled in college and have at least a 2.8 GPA.
