Student Trainee (Business and Industry)
Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue announced that USDA is accepting applicants to its “OneUSDA Internship” opportunity for Summer 2019. Today’s students are the future of America and there are few things more American than agriculture. We’re aiming to find fresh talent, with diverse backgrounds, across all 50 states, to begin their careers as an intern with USDA.
As part of the Federal Pathways Program, the OneUSDA Internship will provide students a way to explore serving their country through a career in government while gaining work experience in agriculture, natural resources, rural development, and other career fields.
The OneUSDA Internship Program provides students with experience in a dynamic work environment that will enhance their educational goals and shape their career choices. At USDA, we are committed to teaching and shepherding the next generation of strong leaders.
USDA will start reviewing applications on December 9, and the application window will close on January 18, 2019.
In the Summer of 2019, USDA will hire Pathways Interns in hundreds of locations across every state for the following occupational fields:
- Agribusiness, Contracting, Procurement, and Industry (Kansas)
- General Administration and Office Support (Kansas)
