For the summer of 2017, NTIS is accepting internship applications from college and graduate students who are looking to serve at NTIS headquarters, which is located in Alexandria, Virginia.
NTIS is offering an opportunity for an enthusiastic communications major who would assist with external and internal communications. The intern will promote a positive public image and control the dissemination of information on behalf of NTIS.
Strong communication and copywriting skills are required. Experience in corporate communications and project management are a plus but not required.
Summer internships typically begin in June and continue through the first week of September; however, there is limited flexibility on specific dates. NTIS staff will assist students who wish to receive college credit for this unpaid internship.
