Internship Opportunities Ms. Ruta Haile President, NCMA-Pentagon
Internships provide valuable experiences in the work place to both employees and employers. Internships may be obtained while in school or while employed in full-time positions. They range in length, but are generally for a period of one-four years. Internship programs are operated by each agency or organization, each with its own specific requirements.
Internships – cont’d Internships offer you a chance to learn and discover. You will never buy a car without a test drive first, correct? Then you will never know if a particular career is right for you until you take it for a test drive. You may find out that your dream job really isn’t what you expected. You may even discover a new interest you never knew you had.
Internships – cont’d Did you know that 80% of the jobs available out there are NOT advertised? Internships provide a great environment to find Mentors who can help you learn about your field of interest based on his/her own experiences and professional connections. Take the time, when appropriate, to ask the professionals at your internship site questions about their job responsibilities and their career journey.
Government Internships are governmentwide recruitment programs targeted toward individuals at various levels of secondary education. Agencies may appoint at GS-5, GS -7 or GS-9 levels. Upon successful completion of the internships, the interns may be eligible for permanent placement within an agency.
Private Industry Internships • Most large private organizations currently have internship programs. You can find this information directly on their websites. • For organization’s that do not have internship programs, I would suggest you reach out to the Contracts Director/VP/Manager and suggest and internship program and market for yourself to become their first contracts intern.
