The biggest employer in the U.S. wants YOU to join their workforce!

The defense acquisition workforce consists of civilian and uniformed personnel at the DoD who design, procure, test, deliver and sustain the most technologically advanced systems and services in the world to ensure our service members have the tools they need to successfully perform their missions and come home safely. Everything our service members use—from portable water purification systems to tanks—are procured through the acquisition workforce. The DoD relies on its acquisition workforce—91% of whom are civilians—to negotiate and administer contracts worth over $500 billion a year in goods and services, and to ensure that these contracts provide maximum value at the best cost to the taxpayers.

There are nearly 150,000 civilians in the acquisition workforce spanning 15 career fields, including engineering, ITprogram managementcontracting and business. Because of the diverse skillsets needed in the world of acquisition, knowledge from nearly all college majors can be applied to different careers in defense acquisition.

Are there paid summer internship opportunities available in defense acquisition?

Yes, now there are! On September 1st, the DoD launched the College Acquisition Internship Program for the summer of 2019. Students selected to participate will spend the summer working alongside acquisition workforce professionals at agencies such as Missile Defense Agency, Defense Contract Audit AgencyNaval Sea Systems Command and Defense Contract Management Agency in multiple locations across the U.S. During the internship, students will receive hands-on practical experience in analysis, research, report-writing, oral briefings, policy development, program analysis and acquisition-specific computer applications.

Not from one of the states with an Internship location? Not a problem! Unlike other internship programs, the DoD College Acquisition Internship Program offers a relocation stipend for eligible summer interns. Students who successfully complete all intern program requirements may also have the opportunity to convert to a full-time, permanent position upon graduation (which includes the awesome benefits associated with working for the federal government).
