At the end of the program, each intern will give a brief presentation to the executive team summarizing their accomplishments and key takeaways achieved while working for Vencore.   

This ten-week paid internship program runs from May 29 to August 3, with the option to extend.  Each intern should 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.
