Have you heard of the NIH Management Intern (MI) Program? It is a highly competitive, two-year career development program for current NIH employees. MIs come from a variety of job backgrounds, including both scientific and administrative fields. Recent MIs have joined the program from positions as diverse as intramural program specialist, police officer, contract specialist, high-voltage electrician, and extramural support assistant. MIs rotate through different administrative career fields to gain invaluable insight into the NIH while contributing to the work of NIH through targeted assignments and challenging projects. After two years and upon completion of the program, MIs transition into an administrative-management career in one of many areas throughout NIH.
