An internship with a government agency, office holder, political party, interest group, or other organization can provide academic experience and credit, as well as potential career opportunities.
For a future career in the intelligence community, internships are vital gateways into future career field. These experiences occasionally lead to career positions as students return to the agencies where they interned as undergraduates.
As a student in the IC Scholar program at UNL, you will be required to apply to at least FIVE intelligence-related internships a year.
Most intelligence community internships open and close in the early fall semester. Some, including the Department of State are only open until they receive a certain number of applications and others can be open for as little as a week. If you are interested in one of these internships, it is important to have all of your application materials ready so that when the applications open, you can send it off as fast as possible.
Linked here are the websites for some of the main intelligence agencies as well as other sites to check for job postings. Due to the fact that the websites for internships change often, the main agency websites will be listed and you can search internship openings within each website.
