USDA has over 6,000 internships that will be available to students this summer. Please have them visit the following site to submit an application. http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome?navid=INTERN_SCHOLAR&parentnav=CAREERS
Please pass this information on to the appropriate student employment office and academic departments on your campus that would encourage eligible students to apply. Note that Summer Internships are accepting applications from January to mid-April.
You will find that both the attached Internship Applicant Guide and the Student Employment Programs Webinar Presentation give step-by-step instructions on how to apply for a USDA internship online. The Student Employment Programs Webinar Presentation also offers a good overview of the USDA, its department's services, and the educational fields that align with different USDA career paths. Finally, the Webinar Qs document offers answers to frequently asked questions about USDA student employment programs and the internship hiring process.
We would also like to request that you ask the students that apply that they notify Laura Ramos that their application has been submitted so that we can provide a letter of support for their application at email@example.com.
