Federal Government Internships

The U.S. Federal Government can be a rich source of career experience no matter what your field of interest. Generally, listings of opportunities are on the individual agency’s web site. Once there, look for links to Career Opportunities, or Student Employment, or something similar. There are literally hundreds of governmental agencies, but the time taken to search out opportunities can be fruitful.
