Once again, Professor Kay Floyd is sharing a fabulous internship opportunity!

Her contacts at the Air Force Combat Command need interns for their international affairs work. Two of those positions are right down the road at Langley AFB.

(once at the link above, do a 'Control F' to search for either of these two positions: GS-0399-02 or GS-0399-04)

These two positions do not explicitly state that they are for the Air Force Command, but Prof. Floyd's contact there will pull W&M students out of the applicant pile and ask for them to be assigned to the contacts, or highly recommending them to International Affairs posts in other cities **if you let her know that you've applied:

khfloyd@wm.edu If you don't email Prof. Floyd and tell her you've applied, her contacts will have no way of knowing that you are in the pool of applicants.
