State of Oklahoma Internship Opportunities Now Available Online at http://CAPIP.OK.gov

OKLAHOMA CITY – March 3, 2010 – Applying for an internship with the state of Oklahoma just got easier with the new Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Carl Albert Public Internship Program (CAPIP) online application system. Prospective interns can visit http://CAPIP.OK.gov to use the new online application.

“This new online system will be providing efficiencies in many areas of our CAPIP program,” said Denae Edwards, Carl Albert Public Internship Program Coordinator. “Not only are we offering an online process to college students, but the process is extending to all state agencies, providing for less paperwork, increased competition, and less man-hours devoted to the internship hiring process.”

Visitors to the site can view all state of Oklahoma internships with participating agencies and can create an account to apply. The visitor must then complete an online application and specify if they are seeking a graduate, senior undergraduate, or an undergraduate internship. Once OPM approves an online application, state agencies can view the interested applicant and contact those who meet their criteria for their internship.

All Oklahoma state agencies have the ability to upload internship descriptions through the same system by contacting OPM to receive an account. State agencies can contact OPM CAPIP Coordinator, Denae Edwards at (405) 522-1737 or Denae.Edwards@opm.ok.gov.
