USDA Rural Development Hiring Paid Interns



The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is hiring paid part-time interns to help transform rural America. The positions are intended to be non-competitively transferred into federal service upon graduation.

USDA Rural Development administers more than 40 loan and grant programs. Candidates will learn how to originate mortgages, help municipalities access grants & loans, and help rural businesses access capital. They are seeking students (at least half-time) enrolled in a degree or certificate program interested in working about 20 hours a week. Ideal candidates would be interested in spending school breaks with them, increasing their schedules up to 40 hours when possible.

USDA is particularly interested in students studying business or accounting, but if interested in grant & loan making, this might be the right fit no matter what the student's area of current studies. Non-traditional students, veterans, and those seeking new careers are also encouraged to apply.

To apply visit: USAJOBS.GOV and search for announcement “PATH-NE-17-0219”

The DEADLINE to apply is Friday December 9, 2016.
