Management Intern Program Recruits Candidates for 2003

Outstanding men and women who have a clear interest in and a commitment to a career in public service are encouraged to apply for the 2003 NIH Management Intern (MI) Program. Entering its 46th year, the program — a highly competitive 2-year rotational training opportunity — has graduated dozens of interns, many of whom now hold high-level managerial positions with NIH and other federal agencies.

MIs complete assignments that introduce them to potential administrative career tracks in grants & contracts management, information technology, human resources management, central service management, science policy, program and management analysis, public liaison, legislative analysis, budget and finance, communications, and public information & education.

NIH recently welcomed five new management interns (from l) Sharon Ballard, Dominica Roth, Jorge Zapata, Amy Blackburn and Chris Chavis.

MIs come from diverse career backgrounds and from positions in administrative offices, intramural research laboratories and patient care. Skills in project management and evaluation; idea and literature research; data collection, analysis and presentation; negotiation; problem solving; and communication are key attributes of successful MIs.

Eligible candidates must be either a current career or career-conditional employee of the Department of Health and Human Services at the GS-5 level or above, or wage grade equivalent or on any other type of appointment that offers noncompetitive conversion during the application period. Recruitment will open on Feb. 10 and close on Mar. 10. Up to five MIs will be selected.
