The FAA Summer Employment Initiative is designed to attract talented students to the workforce for summer employment opportunities into entry-level positions and provide positive work and developmental experience.
The law-student clerkship focuses on the legal side of the Office of Legal, Legislative, and External Affairs, with some opportunity to also work with the legislative and external affairs. Because OIG is a law-enforcement agency with broad oversight authority, our office offers an experience that is unique within Federal government. From the investigative side, law students will have an opportunity to gain experience in criminal law from the investigative stage through prosecution.
The undergraduate internship provides college juniors and seniors insight into the Federal government. Interns have a unique opportunity to gain understanding of the legislative process. Interns track transportation policy in Congress, attend committee hearings, learn how Congress works, and observe the operations of the Federal government. Interns acquire first-hand experience in the relationship between the Federal government and the media. In the Office of Legal Counsel, interns will work alongside OIG attorneys, providing research and other support.
This is a developmental internship program where the intern works side-by-side with leaders and experts in the field of transportation on both technical and policy projects.
The internship is for up to two years.
The Student Educational Employment Program (SEEP) has two components, the Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) and the Student Career Experience Program (SCEP). It is available to all levels of students: high school, vocational and technical, associate degree, baccalaureate degree, graduate degree, and professional degree students. This program offers you valuable work experience directly related to your academic field of study. It provides formal periods of work and study while you are attending school. The program is designed to be a partnership between the student, their school, and the employing office. The SCEP may lead to permanent employment after you successfully complete your education and meet work requirements.
Job opportunities under this program offer temporary employment that can provide you with valuable work experience. Employment can range from summer jobs to positions that can last as long as you are a student (in one-year increments or less). The duties do not have to relate to your academic field of study. Students in this program may be eligible to enter the SCEP program.
The Student Educational Employment Program provides Federal employment opportunities to students who are enrolled or accepted for enrollment as degree seeking students taking at least a half-time academic, technical, or vocational course load in an accredited high school, technical, vocational, 2 or 4 year college or university, graduate or professional school.
The PDP provides two years of entry level career development that consists of on-the-job training, diverse development assignments, geographic and occupational mobility, and participation at the Professional Development Academy.
