ENROLLEMENT FOR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

 Open Continuously

Lint Center for National Security Studies Unveils Its Inaugural Virtual Internship Program for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. July 15, 2013 – The Lint Center, a non-profit charity, focused on supporting the educational pursuits of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, today formally announced the launch of the Center’s virtual summer internship program that is open continuously. The Lint Center is seeking high caliber candidates from multiple academic disciplines who are seeking substantive career-related work experience through internships and cooperative education positions – for credit or non-credit. The internship program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students seeking unpaid volunteer positions.

 

The Lint Center virtual summer internship program is seeking well qualified undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing degrees in a wide variety of disciplines including liberal arts, communications, administration, computer science, graphics design, business, public administration, history, national security, intelligence as well as other applicable fields of study.

 

“The Lint Center’s continued growth and the increasing need to further the educational development of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers compels us to identify and recruit promising talent to assist the Center’s core mission,” said James R. Lint, Chairman and CEO of the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “Our virtual summer internship will be demanding, but it will also be extremely rewarding and it is my hope tremendously beneficial for those up to the rigorous challenge of a Lint Center internship. In addition to learning the  real world skill experience, Lint Center interns will also have a chance to interact with many national security and counterintelligence professionals.”

How does Reward Volunteers work?

Using Facebook Connect, type in Lint Center for National Security Studies and log your hours. You then can post to Facebook or email friends about your efforts The more hours logged, “likes”, comments and opened emails, the more “Reach” points you and Lint Center will accrue. Reach points are like virtual raffle tickets. More Reach = more chances to win. Prizes include cash, vacations to Vermont, and more. Reward Volunteers is a free way to support the positive efforts of others, to inspire friends to get involved, and bring well-earned recognition to hard working volunteers throughout the US.
