These 11 week rigorous Internships are designed to provide an in depth challenging experience that immerse the intern in career skills needed to succeed as a land manager. Interns will receive advanced level career training, experience, projects, and deliverables. Upon successful internship completion and college graduation, the intern is awarded a hiring authority certificate for non-competitive placement into a permanent career position with the BLM. These certificates become active once the intern graduates from a higher education degree program and are valid for use in career placement for up to two years. Recent college graduates may use these certificates beginning immediately after completion of the internship.
