Federal Internship Portal Now Available

Interns and Fellows in Federal Government

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Department of Labor, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently launched a new federal internship portal on USAJOBS. The Federal Internship Portal, located at https://intern.usajobs.gov, centralizes the application process for those seeking internships with the federal government.

Current students or recent graduates may be eligible for federal internships and job opportunities through the Pathways and other student programs.

You will find internships in most sectors and industries, from health care, cybersecurity, administrative, and conservation, to everything in between. Many internships are now posted with additional postings weekly. Federal internships are a great way to start your public service career and expand your knowledge in a multitude of disciplines.

This new service supports federal government’s ability to recruit, hire, develop, promote, and retain some of the nation’s best talent as outlined in Executive Order 14035.

There are currently over 90 intern job announcements advertised on USAJOBS. Many with multiple positions available nationwide.

Those with advanced degrees from multiple academic disciplines can apply for the PMF program this fall.

The 2024 PMF announcement is due to be released this September. Students are able to use this two-year fellowship to attain leadership positions in the federal government.  Explore the PMF application process now to confirm your eligibility.
