The federal government offers many exciting job opportunities, but they can be difficult to find, track and navigate, complicated by short application windows and information scattered across hundreds of different webpages.

The GoGovernment Federal Internship Finder, created by the Partnership for Public Service, will simplify your search for federal opportunities. The tool compiles publicly accessible information about professional and academic opportunities in government for students and recent graduates into one centralized place.

You can navigate the Federal Internship Finder by using the filters below and click “Learn More” to be directed to the agency’s website for additional information.

Learn more from the Partnership’s recommendations on how agencies can tangibly strengthen early career talent pipelines. This tool is not USAJOBS. USAJOBS posts live positions that are currently open. This tool is a centralized resource for internship opportunity webpages maintained for government opportunities and is intended to help students, recent graduates and advisors plan ahead for opportunities that are of interest to themselves and their students.
