Arlington, VA – July 1, 2016 – As an award winning provider of professional services and management solutions to the Federal marketplace, Millennium Corporation is proud to mentor seven college interns this summer. With diverse studies and talents, the 2016 Millennium Interns come from colleges and universities across the U.S.
“This is a great internship, there are tons of smart people at Millennium who will help you get on the right path.” Corporate Intern and Old Dominion University sophomore Noah Ware said.
Millennium’s three-month internship occurs from May to July at the Arlington, VA headquarters and in select regional offices. From Contracts to Business Development to Cyber Security, each department challenges their intern to operate with an in-field mentor to develop professional and lifelong skills.
“I’ve learned a lot from this internship,” Cyber Security Intern and University of Alabama at Huntsville senior Michael Watts said. “My mentor has challenged me, to work on projects I’ve never done before. I love the opportunity to work in the field I’m studying.”
Following Millennium’s motto of “Results-Driven, People Focused,” this internship programs includes several out of office sessions for the interns, including day trips to the Pentagon, Capitol, and Cyber Security Summits. Millennium Interns are taken on various engagements to promote career and personal development.
“This internship has been extremely educational,” Contracts Intern and College of William & Mary sophomore Corey Parker said. “I’ve learned an assortment of business procedures and terms by shuffling through the different departments of Millennium during my time here.”.
In return, Millennium Interns preform certain tasks in areas related to their fields in addition to a final performance review. The interns collectively have worked on projects related to cyber security, business negotiations, and website development.
“You’ll always find something to do,” Proposal Intern Nathan Browser and Oklahoma University senior said. “It’s a great opportunity to figure out what you want to do and don’t want to do.”
The summer internship allows students to develop skills and relationships within their fields under guidance of real-time professionals.
“There is a lot of behind the scenes work that happens,” Business Development Marketing Intern and James Madison University sophomore Teresa Cummings said. “I think it’s incredible to see the dedication of Millennium’s workers in action.”
The 2016 internship is designed to teach college students how to operate in the professional world using an Open Door Policy that allows interns to keep a conversation going with various members of the company, from mentor to Executive Level.
“Millennium is family orientated,” Business Development Capture Team Intern and Hampton University sophomore Christopher Carter said. “The people here want to see each other succeed. If you need something they’ll help you.”
It is the full Millennium Experience. Accounting Intern and Georgia Southern junior Tori Smith described this Millennium Internship as “Getting the job done effectively, while having fun. The environment here allows me to learn.”
