Logo of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KansasToday is the first day of my internship with the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas.  I will be working in the Budget Office part-time while attending classes at the University of Kansas.

The Unified Government’s website is located here, and here is some more information on Kansas City, Kansas from Wikipedia.  The Budget Division’s website is here.

Part of the MPA program at KU is the focus on interships.  Students work a part-time internship for the calendar year in which they take classes, and then work a full-time internship for an additional year before earning a degree.
