Hello, we have an opening for 6 virtual interns to teach environmental education in the Seattle metro area. Can you pass it on to your networks? The description of our specific project and the entire program is below. If you know of other program/internship coordinators at other schools, it would be great if you could forward this on to them as well. Thank you!
EPA Region 10 Virtual Internship EcoLearn – Teach exciting prepared environmental education lesson plans at local elementary schools in the Seattle metro area. Project code EPA-USA-1
The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) is the largest virtual internship program in the world! This year there are more than 1,000 vacancies with more than 30 federal agencies. VSFS offers unique mentoring and exposure to job opportunities within the U.S. government.
Applications for the 2017-18 VSFS program are open between July 2 and 26 on USAJOBS.gov. Real experience is waiting for U.S. college students across the federal government, including NASA, Smithsonian, State Department, CIA, National Parks Service, and others. You can see the projects offered at http://vsfs.state.gov/ by clicking on “See All Projects” at the top! To apply, students must log on to USAJOBS, create an account, build a resume, and upload a transcript.
Students play an important role in moving the government forward. There’s something for everyone: graphic design, research, mapping, videography, history, analysis, 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.
Learn more at our website, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter! Have questions? Get answers! Post them on our VSFS forum, sign up to receive notifications about VSFS and other internship opportunities under Keep Me Informed, and check in with your regional Diplomat in Residence.
All the best,
The fine print: Applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in university level courses in the U.S. or abroad. Last year, we had students from undergraduate to PhD to part-time online students. 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.
