Department of State ITEP Internships

The U.S. Department of State Pathways Internship Temporary Experience Program (ITEP) is
accepting applications.

Visit USAJobs to start the online application process and search for the following 
vacancy announcement numbers. Please note the cutoff number for each position. 
Applications received after the cutoff  number is reached will not be reviewed. 
Therefore, timely submission of applications is important.

ITEP                                                    Grade   Location   Cutoff   Announcement #
GS-199 Foreign Affairs                           5,7        DC            200    HRSC/PATH-2014-0080
GS-199 Foreign Affairs - Seasonal      5,7        DC              50     HRSC/PATH-2014-0081

ITEP places interns on temporary appointments not to exceed one year with the possibility
of extensions in one-year increments. The temporary nature of ITEP allows for interns to 
work  during seasonal and holiday breaks in academic programs. ITEP participants are 
ineligible for noncompetitive promotions. If an ITEP participant is qualified at a higher 
grade level, he/she must compete for the position via a USAJobs vacancy announcement.  
Both programs allow for noncompetitive conversion into the competitive service following 
successful completion of all program requirements. Veteran’s preference applies.

Pathways internship opportunities with the U.S. Department of State allow students to 
witness and participate  in the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy, and 
work closely with the U.S. diplomats and civil servants who carry out America’s foreign 
policy initiatives.

U.S. citizenship is required. An equal opportunity employer.
