A candidate's application materials, including transcripts and letters of recommendations, are reviewed by prospective employers, who then interview and ultimately select the summer intern that best suits its needs for the position available. The number of students applying usually exceeds the number of positions available; therefore, not all candidates submitting an application will be interviewed or selected to participate in the program.
 
Summer Enrichment
Throughout the summer, the Governor’s Internship Program sponsors enrichment events for the interns. Last summer’s events included a reception at the Governor’s Mansion, lunch with the First Lady, a trip to Tamarack, a roundtable discussion with community leaders, and a luncheon and tour of the new West Virginia State Museum.
