The Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) is the largest virtual internship program in the world! This year they will offer nearly 3,000 positions with 50+ federal agencies. VSFS offers unique mentoring and exposure to job opportunities within the U.S. government.
Each year, applications are open to U.S. college students from July 1 – 31 on USAJOBS.gov. Real experience is waiting for students at NASA, the Smithsonian, U.S. Department of State, Forest Service, Indian Health Service, CIA, National Park Service and others. You can see the projects offered at http://vsfs.state.gov/ by clicking on “See All Projects” at the top! To #ApplyinJuly to their top three projects, students must log on to USAJOBS, create an account, build a resume, write a statement of interest, and upload a transcript.
Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River (UPDE) is looking for a virtual intern to help support the cultural resources and interpretation divisions. All National Park Service internship opportunities for the 2019-2020 school year, can be found here: https://vsfs.state.gov/agencies/view/NPS. UPDE’s internship is NPS-USA-3: Improve Access to NPS Cultural Resources for In Person and Virtual Visitors.
Students play an important role in moving the government forward from analog to digital. There’s something for everyone: graphic design, research, mapping, videography, foreign language expertise, marketing, community management, writing, calculation, policy planning, app development, and more!
eInterns should expect to spend ten hours a week on their project from September through May. This is unpaid, volunteer work, but eInterns make connections that make a difference, gain valuable experience, and sometimes get course credit. All applicants must be U.S. citizens in student status at a university in the U.S. or abroad. VSFS is open to undergrad through PhD candidates taking classes full or part-time, in-person or on-line.
The fine print: A resume, transcript, and statement of interest are required as part of the application process. Interviews may be conducted in August. eInternships are unpaid and do not require a security clearance or travel.
