Internship at the U.S. General Services Administration

The GSA is offering a few paid summer internships. Below are some of the basic duties. You can also learn more or apply by this February 27, 2009 through USAjobs.gov.
  • Works under the supervision and guidance of a high-level program official who provides continuing guidance and instruction and reviews completed work to insure adequacy and accuracy of conclusions.

  • Performs special assignments designed to familiarize the intern with the scope and mechanics of an important and complex GSA program and with its relationship to other governmental and private organizations. These assignments are also designed to permit the intern to make a positive contribution to the management and administration of the program area.

  • Individual assignments may vary, but most are "problem solving" oriented and require well developed abilities in fact-finding, research, analysis, and written and verbal communication.

  • Assignments typically involve research into problem areas of the work program and participation in development of background information for use in
    determining alternative approaches to solution of problems. They often
    involve performing research for replies to top-level correspondence from
    Members of Congress, important officials from other Government agencies,
    leaders in business and industry and the general public. Assignments are
    sometimes sensitive or confidential in nature and normally require
    contacts with top-level officials of GSA and other federal agencies.
