Job Description

Who May Apply: This announcement is targeted toward high school students and first-year college students who are eligible for participation in the Department of the Army Internship Program and are pursuing or planning to pursue a qualifying degree in Computer Science. NOTE: The following Pathways student trainee announcements are currently open on USA Jobs for other academic fields:
SWGR202611154531PI - Physical Science
SWGR202631169922PI - Mathematics and Statistics
SWGR202609114522PI - Engineering Positions are open to current students pursuing a qualifying degree in an accredited high school, college (including 4-year colleges/universities, community colleges, and junior colleges); professional, technical, vocational, and trade school; advanced degree programs; or other qualifying educational institution on at least a half-time basis (as defined by the institution in which the student is enrolled). Short-term training programs (e.g., several two-week programs completed) are not considered an academic course of study. Internship for current students in good standing at an accredited education. All qualifications must be met by the closing date of this announcement.
For this internship, you must be able to work full time when not attending classes (i.e. summers, fall and spring breaks, etc.). This position may be full-time or part-time and may require a minimum of 16 hours per week. The average work week is 16-40 hours per week. This position will be required to work during the school year. Daily work hours are flexible and will be Monday-Friday.This intern position is designed to prepare a student trainee for employment after graduation as a Computer Scientist. Interns will be assigned tasks designed to increase familiarity with the target occupation in a real world work environment.This opportunity follows a standard promotional path: Internship selection will be made at the DB-01 level (equivalent to GS grades 01 through 04). This pay band is typical for a high school or undergraduate student. Within 120 days after completion of Internship requirements, you may be eligible for conversion to the entry-level for the target occupation. Entry level for these positions is typically at the DB-02 level (equivalent to GS grades 05 through 11). The full performance level of this position is DB-04 (equivalent to GS grades 12 through 14). Progression from the entry-level to the full performance level for this occupation will depend on successful completion of all requirements for promotion. Pay adjustments may be made every six months to recognize additional levels of education or experience. See requirements for conversion to permanent or term position in the "Additional Information" section below. NOTE: Students that are graduating and are not subsequently enrolled in another program might not meet the work-hour requirements prior to graduation and will be at risk for not being able to convert to a career or career-conditional appointment! For qualification purposes, an academic year is computed as follows: At the undergraduate level, successfully completed education that has not led to possession of a degree is credited based on its relationship to 120 semester hours or 180 quarter hours. For example, 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours is comparable to 1 year of undergraduate education. Four years of progressive study or 120 semester hours meets the degree requirements. Additional credit cannot be given for duplicate course work. For study at a business or technical school, 36 weeks of study (20+ classroom hours per week) is comparable to 1 academic year above high school. An academic year of graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent 1 academic year of full-time study. This determination is made based on normal course loads for a full year of study in the graduate program. If that information cannot be obtained from the school, 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours should be considered as satisfying the 1 year of full-time study requirement. Part-time graduate education is creditable in accordance with its relationship to a year of full-time study at the school attended. When academic credit is expressed in contract months, units, or other terms that differ from conventional semester or quarter hours, it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide an interpretation of such credits from the appropriate institution in order to equate them to the semester or quarter hours specified in the standard. NOTE: If your college, vocational, trade, technical or high schools' definition of "academic year" differs from above, you must submit proof of this difference (e.g., copy of course catalog that defines an academic year). Absent this documentation, you will screened for academic qualifications based on the academic hours as defined in the bullets above. You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas:
