Hands-on paid work
All internships are designed to engage in hands-on, meaningful, paid work while applying classroom theories to live work conditions in support of the NNSS mission.
“The work environment, together with the student program experience, gives you a better view of what a future career might look like in both technical and professional fields,” according to the release. “It can also help widen your career path options while shaping the future of MSTS and the NNSS. If you want to be part of a program that supports national security, while working to advance your career, join us at MSTS.”
The MSTS summer schedule is designed to acclimate students with relevant work conditions, including mentorships, student activities, knowledge, and skill-based experiences. The program also offers peer-to-peer social and work group interactions with their own Early Career Employee Resource Group.
Students must be U.S. citizens. Eligibility application information and requirements include steps to apply, candidate reviews along with selection processes and program details.
“Our vision is to be the user site of choice for large-scale, high-hazard, national security experimentation, with premier facilities and capabilities below ground, on the ground, and in the air.” according to the report.
The NNSS welcomed more than 100 students from Las Vegas and across the U.S last year and hopes to hire even more emerging talent for the internships slated to begin in May of this year.
