Public Service Career Hub


Colin Powell School students come to City College ready to find jobs and build careers where they can make a difference for themselves, their families and their City.  You bring a wealth of knowledge about your communities, and you have a passion for making a difference on the issues and causes that need your leadership over the course of life.  

The Colin Powell School Public Service Career Hub is here to help you figure out and find opportunities–internships, jobs, and careers–in public service.

If you hear the call to build a better city, nation, and world, we can connect you to the jobs by which you can do good and do well. 




Most “entry-level” jobs for recent college graduates require 1-2 years of experience.  That means you should do more than just take classes while you are in college.  Employers count your campus activities toward professional involvement. Here are some ways to get started

Do Good. Do Well.

What is Public Service?  

Public service careers are jobs in government agencies, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions and the military.
