Our goal at the State of Arkansas is to cultivate a pool of diverse talent for the next generation of professional workers. Are you ready to take the next step? The Arkansas Public Service Internship Program (MyARInternship) is sponsored by the Department of Transformation and Shared Services (TSS).
