Are you looking to gain work experience in the public sector? Have you ever wondered what types of jobs the County offers? 


The Human Resources Office of the County of Nevada is seeking a front-desk intern. The front desk of the HR office is a busy place, with visitors coming in, calls ringing, and emails arriving. The front desk is a key hub of activity that supports the entire office made up of 8 regular staff and 3-4 temporary employees and interns. We see the front desk internship as an opportunity to learn office skills in a supportive, teaching environment. While you're learning, you're also engaged in meaningful projects which are usually fun and challenging.

We expect our interns to demonstrate core County competencies of integrity, customer service, and follow-through on assigned tasks. Keys skills or knowledge that would help you be a good candidate for this role include a willingness to learn, comfort around basic Microsoft Office Software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Teams), and ability to use standard office equipment such as a copy machine and multi-line phone. We'll teach you what you may not know, beyond these basics.

Our leadership values employee development and engagement, promotes open and transparent communication, sets us up to be a high-performing organization, and recognizes our contributions. Our leadership connects with the community, listens to them, and provides significant programming to keep us safe and healthy.

We want this internship to be a success for you, so we've designed it to include cross-training in various areas of HR while you're working in this internship program. We will surround the intern in a learning-rich environment. We are a fun department that laughs a lot and enjoys great camaraderie! Here are some tasks you would be trained to perform:

  • Filing employee documents into electronic Personnel Files.
  • Learning, creating, and using Excel, Word, PowerPoint Presentations, and other software programs.
  • Answer phones and direct callers.
  • Read daily email inbox and route emails; create County ID badges; respond to verification of employment requests.
  • Learn more about the human resources profession.

We seek an intern to work 16 to 40 hours per week or more depending on your availability. Hours are flexible. 

We are an equal-opportunity employer and value individual contributions at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided with reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment.
