Management Intern program unlocks new career paths
Have you heard of the NIH Management Intern (MI) Program? It is a highly competitive, two-year career development program for current NIH employees. MIs come from a variety of job backgrounds, including both scientific and administrative fields. Recent MIs have joined the program from positions as diverse as an intramural program specialist, police officer, contract specialist, high-voltage electrician and extramural support assistant.
MIs rotate through different administrative career fields to gain invaluable insight into the NIH while contributing to the work of the NIH through targeted assignments and challenging projects. After two years and upon completion of the program, MIs transition into an administrative-management career in one of many areas throughout NIH.
The NIH Management Intern Program vacancy announcement will be posted in USAjobs.gov from March 1 to 10, 2023, under the title of Management Intern. To learn more about the program or to view a recording of a recent MI Information session visit the NIH Management Intern Program website.
Management Intern Program will be holding information sessions about the opportunity on February 14 from 10 – 11:30 am and February 16 from 1:30 to 3 pm. There will also provide an opportunity for those interested to speak directly to current MIs who will answer questions at a Coffee with an MI session on February 22 from 12:30 to 2 pm.
