Management Intern Program unlocks new administrative-management career paths
While under the hiring freeze, the NIH Management Intern (MI) Program, a highly competitive, two-year career-development program for current NIH employees, is not currently recruiting. Interested parties are encouraged to take the time in this interval to confer with colleagues and learn more about this prestigious program to determine if it's right for them in the future.
MIs come from a variety of job backgrounds, including both scientific and administrative fields. Recent MIs have joined the program from positions as diverse as intramural program specialist, police officer, contract specialist, high voltage electrician and extramural support assistant.
MIs rotate through different administrative career fields to gain invaluable insight into the NIH while contributing to the work of NIH through targeted assignments and challenging projects. After two years and upon completion of the program, MIs transition into an administrative-management career in one of many areas throughout NIH.
