Summer Jobs Program 2018


The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program is sponsored by Johns Hopkins Health System and Johns Hopkins University. The program provides Baltimore City students the opportunity to complete an eight-week long paid internship in one of various departments throughout the Institution. The program promotes exposure to careers and workplace culture, while providing an educational experience that promotes mentoring and fosters personal responsibility.

As seen in the 2016 Biennial Report. Learn more.

JHSJP positions are subject to availability by department commitment across the Institution- certain placement areas cannot be guaranteed; the best effort is made by the committee to match students to an area of interest. Past internships have been in the areas of administrative/clerical, patient care and medicine-related, research, information technology, general facilities/housekeeping services, education, human resources and others. Our committee is comprised of representatives from all areas of Johns Hopkins.

Students will work in their respective departments Monday to Thursday and will attend professional development seminars each Friday. Professional development seminar topics include, but are not limited to the following: Service Excellence, Teamwork, Post-secondary Education, Job Readiness, Financial Literacy, Professional Etiquette, etc.

We will review all applications that are submitted by the deadline (February 17, 2018). Preference will go to:

  • Baltimore City residents
  • Baltimore City school students
  • Students at least 15 years old by June 25 of the program year
  • Students with a passing GPA and good attendance
