The Department of Commerce (DOC) established a post secondary internship program to aid and promote experiential training activities which foster future employment at DOC or the Federal government in general. Student opportunities will be primarily located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, but will include field locations outside the area. Summer internship sessions will last for a ten-week period. Academic semester or quarter internship sessions will be structured to coincide with the academic calendar of the students' institutions. The DOC serves as the host Federal agency for the student interns; however, students may be assigned to work in Federal agencies other than DOC.
