Summer Internships in Conservation/Agriculture/Economics with Natural Resources Conservation Service

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has begun posting internships for college students for the upcoming summer. Please share this with your network: 

Jobs may continue to be posted over the next week or so, but pay attention to closing dates as they tend to be only 1 week after initial posting and can close early if there is an overwhelming response. 

Students typically need to have 2 summers left before graduation to work as an intern, meet the requirements of the program, and successfully convert to full time employment after graduation. 

Be aware, having a COVID vaccine or request for exemption is now a condition of employment.  From the job announcements:

  • Federal employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 regardless of their duty location. If selected, you will be required to submit documentation of COVID-19 vaccination by November 22, 2021 or before appointment, if after November 22.
  • The agency will provide additional information regarding what COVID-19 vaccination information or documentation will be needed and how you can request of the agency a legally required exception from this requirement.

As always, I am available to talk with students or others about careers with NRCS, navigating USAJOBS, the application and selection process, and encourage anyone interested to contact me. 

Thank you for your time and attention. Be well,
