You must receive pre-approval from your organization and branch of service to participate in either of these programs and provide us with the dates you will be available. Our internships for service members can range from 3-6 months in length. Every branch of service has its own requirements for program participation, so it is important to visit the websites for DoD SkillBridge or Career Skills Program for specific instructions and guidance.
