      long-range planning efforts.
      Skills and Abilities: Minimum qualifications include proficiency with
      Microsoft Word and Excel; strong writing and analytical skills; and

      using ArcGIS, which would include, at a minimum, having skills in basic
      map design and experience performing attribute and spatial queries.
      Advanced GIS skills or advanced skills with other graphics programs
      (e.g. Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign) is preferred.
      Proficiency in one or more of the foreign languages commonly spoken in
      Oakland (Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish, Vietnamese) is highly desirable.

      Compensation: $16.27 per hour.

      Availability: The Intern position is limited to 1,000 hours per fiscal
      year (July 1 through June 30). Interns typically work between 2 and 4
      days per week during regular business hours; scheduling of days and
      hours is flexible. Part-time work during the academic year and full-time
