Human Resources Internship - The Institute for Defense Analyses

Interested in HR work? The IDA is looking for a student or recent graduate interested in a career in Human Resources to support our HR Directorate. IDA HR is amidst a transformation to a more strategic and customer-focused team responsible for developing and maintaining HR programs to support IDA’s overall strategic goals and objectives. Process improvement is a critical component of this transformation. We are looking for an intern with a fresh perspective and a can-do attitude to help us streamline, improve, and document our internal HR processes and procedures. This assignment will involve learning current processes by reviewing existing process documents and interviewing stakeholders involved in processes; assessing and identifying opportunities for improvement; and documenting finalized processes, including drafting SOPs and creating flowcharts and diagrams. Reporting to the HR Director, the selected individual will work with all functional areas of HR.

Office of Community Engagement Fellowships

The Office of Community Engagement is now accepting applications for our Community Engagement Fellowships. Through the fellowships, recent graduates gain public service experience to develop their active citizenship and work for community change. Fellows dedicate ten months to work on campus and in the greater Williamsburg area.

Applications are now available and review will begin April 18. Learn more about the fellowships, and apply via the W&M HR system.

US Department of State Consular Fellows Program

You – or someone you know – can use their language proficiency in Arabic, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish to engage the world through the Consular Fellows Program (CFP).

Recently, they made it easier to apply for the program. You no longer have to wait until an announcement opens for application – you can go straight to this website and apply at any time.

Join now, and begin this temporary appointment for up to five years, and help promote America’s interests by assisting U.S. citizens abroad, fostering economic growth at home, and contributing to U.S. national security.

When you become a Consular Fellow, you also receive similar benefits to those who serve in the Foreign Service. This includes a competitive salary, paid housing for you and your family while serving overseas, and the opportunity to receive a recruitment bonus and participate in the Student Loan Repayment Program.

Campaign Organizer - US PIRG

You’ll come together with other new and experienced staff from across the country to learn how to make your impact in classroom trainings that focus on the issues, our campaigns, our strategies and the tactics you’ll be using throughout the year. Then, you’ll put those skills to use in the field.

For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a major restaurant to stop serving meat raised on antibiotics. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that switching to more renewable energy is an opportunity to be a hero with the public. Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and where you can make the biggest difference.
