February is just around the corner and you know what that means don't you? What, you don't?
February is when VA begins recruitment for interns for the Technical Career Internship Program. I think this is an amazing program and I am going to use this, my personal space, to provide you with some information and valuable links to more information about the program.
The Technical Career Internship Program is one of the largest training programs at VA. TCF internships equip professionals with the specialized knowledge they need to support the delivery of quality health care for our Nation's veterans.
Do you like the sound of that? It was written by some great people (not me) and there is more where that came from:
TCF internships are more of an apprenticeship in yout chosen field rather than a traditional internship. Interns are expected to be an active member of the VA team, applying knowledge and skills to the tasks at hand. Interns are entitled to many of the same benefits as other VA employees, as well as benefits avaialble only to TCF interns.
TCF internships are available in a number of career fields to include biomedical engineering, compliance and business integrity, finance, human resource management, safety/industrial hygeine, and supply, processing and distribution. A full list of technical career fields is available at VA Careers.
Not all internships are offered at all locations. The TCF page will be updated in late February with a listing of available TCF internships and 2010 TCF contacts.
