Information Technology Management Student Intern
Relocation expenses reimbursed No
Interns must work a minimum of 400 hours. Appointments for student intern positions are nonpermanent and generally last from 10 to 16 weeks. Part time student interns are required to work 16 to 32 hours a week.
The anticipated start date is September/October 2018. Student interns may have an opportunity for a permanent or term position based on a successful intern experience (completion of a minimum of 400 hours of work) and successful completion of degree requirements. The ability to convert to a permanent or term appointment with 400 hours of work experience is contingent upon budgetary conditions and staffing needs at the time of eligibility.
The pay for these intern positions is at the grade 4 step 1.
To qualify for the GS-4 level, you must have completed two academic years of post-high school study or associate's degree, AND be enrolled in an academic program leading towards a Bachelor's degree in an IT-related field of study.
NOTE: An academic year of undergraduate education is defined as 30 semester hours, 45 quarter hours, or the equivalent in an accredited college or university.
All applicants must also have at least 12 semester hours or 18 quarter hours in a combination of management information systems, computer science, business information technology, information assurance/security, statistics, math or other IT-related fields of study.
At the start of the program, proof of enrollment through December 2018 leading towards a Bachelor's degree in an IT-related field of study must be evident.
NOTE: You must be a student to participate in the program and continue to be a student until the completion of the minimum 400 hour work requirement. If at any point during the internship (and for any reason) your status as a student changes to that of a non-student, your internship will be terminated.
All academic degrees and coursework must be from accredited or pre-accredited institutions.
This is a non-bargaining unit position.
