Transportation Planning Intern

Henry County
McDonough, Georgia

The Transportation Planning Intern will create short video clips explaining various Henry County transportation plans to the citizens of Henry County. These videos will be posted on YouTube and the Henry County website for public viewing.

Henry County has prepared a transportation plan, a transit master plan, and a trails plan. These plan documents are lengthy. People may not have the time or the inclination to read and understand them. The Intern, thus, will provide a valuable public service by explaining in plain English the jest of these plan documents and their recommendations in no more than three-to-five minutes to the average folks of Henry County. This will require the intern to first read the plans and comprehend them well enough to explain to others. The videos be of semi-professional quality (no unedited amateur cellphone videos that are typically posted on social media). As time permits, the Intern may produce additional videos informing the public of current and upcoming transportation planning initiatives.

Henry County will provide a laptop computer. The Intern is expected to have his/her own video equipment and video editing software, be comfortable speaking on camera, and produce videos independently. The Intern will be paid $20 per hour, no benefits, as this is a part-time temporary position. This summer internship is for a maximum of 200 hours between May 1 and September 1, 2024. The Intern may choose a start date anytime during this period and may choose to work less than 200 hours. The Intern will be expected to work a minimum of 15 hours per week but no more than 29 hours per week.
