Attached is a flyer for our Summer 2020 Internship posting. It is open now and closes an entire month earlier than in previous years and BEFORE all the Fall Career Fairs.
Intern applicants are required to select offices they’d like to work at. Most select the office near their home but Engineers usually do best at FBI headquarters in DC or at the Engineering Research Facility or Operational Technology Division which is part of our Laboratory at Quantico. Electrical Engineers also do well as Computer Scientist in Field offices. If anyone has questions about where they should chose have them contact me directly. Email is best.
Selections and offers will be made by the beginning of November. They're doing this to try and solve the yearly problem of applicants not getting through background in time to do the summer internship and consequently leaving many students without a summer internship last minute. They're making hard deadlines this year as well for background investigation. If the student isn't processed to the point of successfully completely the polygraph by January 17, 2020 they will be discontinued and notified. If the student's background investigation isn't completed by May 1, 2020 they're discontinuing them and notifying them so they can look for another opportunity or job.
Qualifications & Eligibility are the same.
1. 3.0 GPA or higher;
2. Must be a Full-time student (12 credits for Undergrad; 6 credits for Graduate); 3. Must be returning to school full-time in September 2020; 4. Must be capable of passing the FBI Background Investigation and obtaining a Top Secret Clearance. See Disqualifiers on our websitewww.fbijobs.gov; 5. Must be in the United States during the background investigation which means from now until the Internship starts (both Fall 19 & Spring 20 semesters-not studying aboard for the semester). A one week vacation will be fine.
A couple of facts, we had 1100 Interns this past summer which included hiring about 360 new ones for Summer 2019. Many were returning Interns from previous years who were invited to stay on with us after their first summer. Baltimore Division had 29 Interns this summer. Approx. 30% of the FBI's entry level positions were filled by Interns this past year.
