Pathways and Recent Grads Program

The Norfolk District participates in the Pathways Program and offers federal internship and employment opportunities for current students and recent graduates. 

Internship Program
The Internship Program is for current students. If you’re a current student in college or a trade school or other qualifying educational institution, you may be eligible. 

This program offers paid opportunities to work in federal agencies and explore federal careers while completing your education. (Learn more)

Recent Graduate Program
The recent graduate program is for those who have graduated, within the past two years, from a qualifying educational institution or certificate program. The recent graduate program offers career development with training and mentorship.

You must apply within two years of getting your degree or certificate (veterans have up to six years to apply due to their military service obligation). (Learn more)

Past Experiences 

“I had one of the best internship experiences here with the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and I would love to come back to work here,” - Simone Johnson, Virginia State University student


 “Because we almost immediately began working on our own permitting projects, we were able to instill a confident and rigorous work ethic that not only made the experience more rewarding, but also assured that we made the right choice to come work for the Corps."Carly Golden, Brandeis University graduate student
