No worries! A lot of opportunities at NGA focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics related topics. Students are offered the opportunity to put what has been learned in school to use in the ‘real’ world, and any gaps not taught at a university are explained through on-the-job training. Plus, NGA employees are always willing to help interns out and grow in their journey to finding the right career path for them.
Not a STEM major? Again, no worries! Interns are also placed in roles ranging from communications to research. NGA doesn’t require students to already have their future career decided. A popular function of the internship program is the shadowing process allowing interns to branch out from their origin area of work to learn about other areas of the agency which exposes them to different job options.
