Gallaudet Internship Program Open

What began in 1996 as a collaborative effort between the Office of the Director Equal Employment Opportunity Office and Gallaudet has resulted in NIH sponsoring more than 40 interns in 13 institutes and centers. Through the Gallaudet University Internship Program, students have worked in laboratories and offices conducting research, developing databases or web pages, preparing budget reports, reviewing grant applications and identifying approaches to deaf awareness.

NIH offices interested in sponsoring an intern provide a descriptive statement-of-work that allows students to determine if they have the skills and the interest to accept the opportunity. Resumes are submitted to the sponsoring office and interviews scheduled.

Students must work a minimum of 10 hours a week for 10 weeks. The IC may determine whether it is a paid or volunteer position.

NIH requests to participate in the program during fall 2001 will be accepted through Sept. 7. If you have questions, call Hilda Dixon or Ana Kennedy in the OD EEO Office, 402-4157.

Employee Express Kiosks Going Away

As of Sept. 30, all Employee Express kiosks will be removed from NIH. Due to the increasing use of the web version of Employee Express, kiosk use has dropped off to a point that it is no longer reasonable to maintain them. If you are accustomed to using the kiosks for making changes to your personnel information, there are two other methods of accessing the Employee Express system. The first is to access Employee Express via the web at The web provides the kiosk interface you are familiar with, but from the privacy of your desk or home computer. If you are unable to access the web, you may utilize Employee Express via the phone. Any touchtone phone can be used to access the system. From work call 478-757-3088 or from home call 1-800-573-0940. Your PIN and privacy can be compromised if you use a cellular phone.

If you do not know your PIN, call the Employee Express help desk at 478-757-3030 or go to the Employee Express web site and select the "Forgot PIN" button on the left side of your screen. You will be asked to supply identification, and then a PIN will be mailed to you within 5-7 business days. If you are experiencing difficulty or have general questions, call the HR Solutions Team at 496-4556.
