The OneUSDA Internship Program offers Federal opportunities to students currently enrolled in qualifying educational programs or institutions. It is a comprehensive developmental program intended to provide students with experience in a dynamic work environment that will enhance their educational goals and shape their career choices. An internship with USDA will involve various components of on-the-job experience, mentorship, and training tailored to the student’s education, experience, and interests.
During 2018, USDA was proud to host more than 3,000 interns throughout the country, about half were through the Federal Pathways program.
For the summer of 2019, we are aiming to bring even more college students onboard in the Federal Pathways program, to serve their country through a career in government and begin pursuing careers in agriculture, natural resources, and rural development.
The improvements we’re making to internships at USDA will enable us to recruit the best (that is you!) and retain the best (it’s a competition, and we want you to perform at your best here, for the American people!).
