AND AMBITION CONVERGE
Regardless of the career path you choose or your preferred occupation, as an Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS) Intern, there's one thing you'll make from day one: an impact. You'll work side by side with our men and women in uniform and Civilians just like you, gaining invaluable hands-on experience in the field of your choosing.

SEEKING THE NATION'S BEST AND BRIGHTEST
TO WORK ALONGSIDE THE NATION'S BEST AND BRIGHTEST
As a paid, full-time AFCS intern, you'll work in a collaborative and inclusive workplace that values quality of life and diversity of experiences. You'll be eligible for tuition assistance, student loan repayment, paid post-graduate studies, an attractive sign-on bonus for certain positions, as well as competitive compensation and other generous perks like federal health insurance, federal retirement benefits, and paid federal holidays. Upon completion of your internship, you may qualify for a permanent, full-time position.
CIVILIANS AND THE ARMED FORCES WORKING SIDE BY SIDE TO KEEP OUR NATION SECURE
At 170,000 Civilians strong, AFCS provides much of the muscle behind the might of the U.S. Air Force. We take the same oath, but we don't wear the uniform. We perform many of the same tasks, but we don't hold rank. We launch rockets, oversee and maintain the nation's constellation of Global Positioning Satellites (GPS), guard the country from cyberattacks, and do whatever it takes to maintain the Air Force's supremacy in air, space, and cyberspace. Whether it's conducting cutting-edge research in the world's most sophisticated labs, maintaining the equipment and infrastructure that allows the Air Force to be ready at a moment's notice, ensuring the health and wellbeing of Airmen and their families, or training Airmen to achieve the next level of proficiency behind every mission, every milestone, and every Airman, there's someone like you.
To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
