AbstractThe internship experience with the City of Tucson Personnel Department provided the opportunity to observe and participate in the basic functions and social service activities of public personnel administration. Portions of the internship were spent working on various projects under the direction of the Director of Personnel. Several weeks were spent in a leadership role in compiling and analyzing data for a wage and salary survey. Supervisory and administrative techniques practiced by the Personnel Department were observed at meetings held by the department and in the day-to day functions of the department. The Personnel Director was interviewed concerning his views on various techniques and concepts. Throughout the internship, records, files, and publications of the Civil Service Commission and Personnel Department were examined. Special attention was paid to the financial operation of the department and to the established Civil Service rules which govern the actions of the Personnel Department. At the end of the internship and when the material for the diary was compiled, class work and internship experience were compared to show their interrelated natures. From the entire Internship experience a general conclusion showing the necessity for professionalism in public personnel administration was drawn.
