Number of apprenticeship and internship positions offered by City of Austin


The Human Resources Department Diversity Initiatives Division is responsible for this metric. It serves to assist Departments in developing and implementing a comprehensive, integrated, and strategic focus on diversity and inclusion as a critical component of all human resource recruitment programs and community engagement. The Division works directly with the City’s Affinity Groups, and partners with local colleges and universities to host various recruiting events and is continuously evaluating recruiting processes, diversity recruiting efforts, and on-going community outreach & engagement.


The City of Austin works toward developing a campus recruiting strategy that aligns with diversity recruiting initiatives. As this team and strategy develop, the hope is to see this metric increase as the City remains an employer of choice and expands internship programs.
