NASA's Pathway Intern Program

My name is Jonathan Abary and I work at NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC). I would like to inform you that we are preparing to post several job announcements for our Pathways Intern Program. Our announcements will be posted to www.usajobs.gov on September 9, 2019. I found your contact information on your organization’s website, and I’m hoping for your help in sharing these opportunities with your student network.

What is the Pathways Intern Program?

Our Pathways Intern Program follows a cooperative education model where current undergraduate and graduate students gain valuable work experience on an alternating school/work basis, and serves as a pipeline for our future full-time employees. Interns receive the same benefits as full-time employees such as bi-weekly pay, insurance, and paid time-off.

Each work tour students rotate into a different functional area at JSC, which allows them to try out different career paths while in school and decide what they want to do after graduation. Each time a student comes for a work tour they’re assigned a mentor who works side-by-side with them to assign a meaningful project and provide the tools/knowledge to complete it.

What Type of Students is NASA Looking for?

We are looking for students who are:
· Space fans. Does the idea of exploring the cosmos fascinate you? Our students have a true passion for space and our mission.
· Tenacious. With any monumental achievement comes challenges and obstacles. Self-motivation, courage, and adaptability are key to our success.
· Collaborators. Our workforce works together to accomplish great things. Open-minded individuals, unified teams, and servant leaders get us there.
· Learners. We need students who thirst for knowledge and growth. How else do you stay at the leading edge of technology?

This semester we are recruiting the following positions/majors:

Johnson Space Center (Houston, Texas)

Accounting: http://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/543253300
