Fantastic internship opportunities

Former Employee - Biological Field Technician

I worked at US Bureau of Land Management as an intern

Pros

I was able to gain exceptional and extensive work as a student with the BLM - they have many opportunities for students in diverse fields of work. It surely varies from station to station, but I felt like I was given great opportunities for skill-building and adequate training, having had no prior experience.

Cons

Bureaucratic hiring systems forced some of the best and most experienced seasonal employees to lose their jobs to new people, against the recommendation of the resident supervisors who actually work with them. It would be difficult to establish a career here, was my impression.
