Interns are not considered employees of the City. Therefore, they have no right to continued or regular employment with the City and cannot apply for internal job openings while serving as an intern. They may instead apply and be considered for external job openings.
Interns can be discharged from their internship assignment at any time for any lawful reason or for no reason, with or without cause. Additionally, interns do not receive performance appraisals from the City.
At the end of each placement, the direct manager or supervisor will provide the college or university and the intern with an evaluation of the assignment and of the intern’s performance. If requested and with a signed release, the City may provide a factual written reference based on the individual’s internship assignment. All signed release forms and written references must be reviewed by Human Resources prior to release.
