- Certified Internal Auditor
As a Logistics Officer Undergraduate Intern for the CIA, you will work with an accomplished, diverse team providing a full range of logistical and supply chain management support across the country and overseas. The work includes managing and executing procurement, shipping, and receiving processes required to support the mission. As part of a team, you will implement these logistics processes by leveraging existing networks and expanding others; anticipating mission needs and requirements and offering alternatives and advice; and evaluating, redesigning and implementing logistics processes for mission support. You will also participate in process reviews, staff meetings, and other activities to increase your understanding of the issues and challenges facing a logistics service provider at the Agency.
Interns generally are required to work at least one 90-day summer internship. Co-op students work on an alternating semester or quarterly basis and are expected to spend a minimum of three semesters or four quarters (this can include a summer tour) on the job prior to graduation.
The Undergraduate Internship/Co-op Program allows you and the Agency to assess opportunities for permanent employment following your completion of undergraduate school.
