Corporate Summer Intern Program

Vencore’s 2018 Summer Intern Program:
With summer just around the corner, Vencore is excited to announce the return of our summer intern program! This program is designed to provide college students the opportunity to learn about Vencore and gain meaningful, hands-on work experience in a professional environment. Vencore’s summer internship program places an emphasis on developing the next generation’s workforce. This being said, as part of our internship curriculum we provide the opportunity for each intern to interact with various branches of the company. This includes the chance to participate in a corporate public speaking course, attend brown bag sessions with our executive leadership team and participate in teambuilding activities with mentors and fellow interns. At the end of the program each intern will give a brief presentation to our executive team summarizing their accomplishments and key takeaways achieved while working for us.
This ten-week paid internship program runs from May 29 to August 3, with the option to extend. We ask that each intern be available to work the duration of the ten weeks and commit to working a minimum of 30 hours per week. This program is geared towards technical college students, actively enrolled at a four year university, who will be rising into their senior year. Juniors may be considered if they have declared their major and have qualified coursework.
