Duties Description The New York State Division of the Budget (DOB) serves as the primary fiscal advisor to the Governor; developing, negotiating, and implementing one of the largest government budgets in the country. DOB is synonymous with challenge, self-empowerment, collaboration, and high-impact public service.

At DOB, interns work side by side with career professionals to provide meaningful contributions to efforts that, depending on the specific assignment, may include:
• Analyzing State agency operations;
• Developing budgetary and policy recommendations;
• Evaluating proposed legislation;
• Negotiating with legislative staff;
• Monitoring revenues and expenditures;
• Communicate and coordinate initiatives with federal, state, and local governments
• Developing and implementing the governor’s initiatives; and
• Monitoring and managing program and project performance.

Working in the heart of the policy arena, DOB interns have a unique vantage point from which they can learn about the innerworkings of government. Interns may also attend professional development trainings.

Experience gained at DOB provides a solid foundation on which interns can build a career. Many former interns have pursued career paths within DOB, throughout State government, in leadership roles in the non-profit arena and government management, as well as in the private sector.

As our work spans the full spectrum of policy areas, from education to housing and public safety, internship opportunities will be available in a variety of policy and program areas this spring. Internships are expected to continue through the summer and potentially through the school year, with possible remote work options available.
