Are you interested in an internship experience that will take you to a higher level, or thinking about your next move after completing your studies?  Do you want an opportunity to contribute to others in an environment that makes the best use of your unique talents and skill sets?  Then you may want to consider a career with the Federal Government! There are a number of opportunities for paid internships that will offer you a perspective on how your education and skills can make you a great fit for public service, and for long-term careers in multiple fields due to the many mission areas represented by our Federal agencies.  If this sounds appealing, a great first step is to attend the Federal Internship and Employment Student Symposium.
With just a small investment of your time, you will learn how to prepare your Federal résumé to have the greatest impact when applying for Federal positions; and about the Federal Pathways Programs, which include internships leading to long-term careers, and career developmental programs for recent graduates, including those who aspire to executive-level positions in the Federal Government. Don’t miss this outstanding, potentially life-changing event!
