U.S. Department of State Internship Experience (IEP) Position Open

These vacancies are for Office Automation (GS-399, Grades 1-4) Student Trainees located in: Charleston, SC, Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL, Honolulu, HI, and San Francisco, CA.

Please visit USAJobs to start the online application process and search for the following vacancy announcement numbers:

IEP:  HRSC/PATH-2013-0009

ITEP: HRSC/PATH-2013-0008

These two programs replace all former paid internships (e.g. Student Temporary Employment Program, Student Career Experience Program, Cooperative Education Program, Stay-in-School Program, and the Summer Clerical Program).

The Internship Experience Program (IEP) allows for non-temporary appointments that are expected to last the length of the academic program for which the intern is enrolled.  IEP participants, while in the program, are eligible for noncompetitive promotions.

The Internship Temporary Experience Program (ITEP) places interns on temporary appointments not to exceed one year with the possibility of extensions in one-year increments.  The temporary nature of ITEP allows for interns to work during seasonal and holiday breaks in academic programs. ITEP participants are ineligible for noncompetitive promotions.  If an ITEP participant is qualified at a higher grade level, he/she must compete for the position via a USAJobs vacancy announcement.

Both programs allow for noncompetitive conversion into the competitive service following successful completion of all program requirements.

Veteran’s preference applies.

So consider a Pathways internship with the U.S. Department of State, witnessing and participating in the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy, working closely with the U.S. diplomats and civil servants who carry out America’s foreign policy initiatives.

We appreciate your interest in a career with the U.S. Department of State.
