Undergraduate Internship Program- Human Resources Officer

Our year-round internship programs allow undergraduate students to work in several areas before they graduate. These paid opportunities span a range of studies, including, but not limited to:

  • Finance
  • Economics
  • Foreign language
  • Engineering
  • Information technology

Schools with co-operative programs typically have specific requirements to receive co-op credit. So, we designed our co-op program at the CIA to help students meet those requirements. As part of our program, students work on an alternating semester basis for at least three semesters before they graduate. This can include a summer work session as well. Since our Agency does not work with an established list of co-op programs, students will need to work with their schools to receive academic credit.

Deadlines

Students have to go through our medical and security process. Interested in our internship or co-op programs? For most of these opportunities, please apply at least 12 months before your desired start date. If you are applying for the Directorate of Operations Internship or our scholarship programs, you will need to submit your application during the timetable listed on the program’s page.

As an HR Analyst Undergraduate Intern with CIA, you will work on teams with our full-time HR Analysts to provide workforce metrics, reports, and analysis to broaden management’s understanding of the workforce and inform decision-making. You will go beyond structuring data and descriptive reporting to produce highly analytic, actionable assessments, as well as apply data visualization methodologies and software such as SPSS and Tableau. You will also play a critical role in strengthening HR’s strategic business partnerships by collaborating with customers and providing workforce analytics and strategic expertise.

HR Analyst Undergraduate Interns will become familiar with the Agency and Intelligence Community by participating in a range of meetings and projects. The Undergraduate Program allows you and the Agency to assess opportunities for permanent employment following the completion of your curriculum.
