Permanent internships are expected to last more than one year and these candidates are eligible to convert (non-competitively) to a career within the Federal civil service.

Non-traditional interns will work full-time throughout the year and be allowed to take courses online or at night to stay in good standing with their university. Non-traditional internships are often reserved for non-engineering interns. These internships are paid based upon the Federal government's GS pay scale. To be considered for these internship opportunities, you must pass a background check and medical screening.
