Summer Intership: Defense Intelligence Agency

This would be an incredible learning experience. 11/15 deadline!

The DIA Summer Intern Program
DIA's Summer Intern Program provides promising undergraduate seniors and graduate students the opportunity to gain practical work experience during the summer. While specific intern opportunities vary from year to year based on the Agency’s needs, internships are usually available in the following functional areas: Foreign Area Studies, Computer Science, Legal, Information Assurance, Business Administration, Human Resources, International Relations, Public Administration, Political Science, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Toxicology, Engineering, or Intelligence Analysis.

This program is open only to those enrolled as full-time degree seeking students at universities and colleges worldwide.

The Agency offers a limited number of paid summer internships. Interns will be appointed for a 10-week period from June through August, 2010 as full-time temporary employees.

To work as a DIA summer intern, you must be granted a security clearance and must successfully pass a Counterintelligence (CI) Scope polygraph examination and drug test, no later than 30 days prior to June 13, 2010. We will not make a final offer of employment to you until you have met all of these requirements.

Please note that the security clearance procesing, CI Scope Polygraph examination and drug test cannot be conducted if you are overseas. Therefore, do not apply to this program if you are studying or working abroad any time in the 6-9 months prior to the summer during which you wish to work as an intern.

As an intern, you will be paid according to the number of college credit hours you have completed. Since this is a temporary appointment, you will not receive employee benefits.

All selected students are responsible for securing their own travel and lodging accommodations.
