Federal Career Internship Program under investigation
Just read an interesting article in the Washington Post about the Federal Career Internship Program, which has been under fire lately for not being what it appears to be. Instead of recruiting undergraduate and graduate students for an internship experience, it seems that the FCIP program instead serves to hire frontline employees while circumventing the process typically reserved for federal jobs. Really interesting stuff!! Read the article to learn more. Have you had any experience working as an intern or co-op with the federal government? What's your take on all this?
