Interns are being trained in 22 career programs in over 150 different occupations. They enter the program at the GS-5 and GS-7 levels as permanent full-time employees. Interns receive career/career-conditional appointments in the competitive service. DA interns reside on HQDA student detachment spaces for the first 24 months; local interns reside on mission rolls. Upon graduation from the program, interns are placed on mission rolls in journey level GS-9 or GS-11 positions, according to the career program intern target grade and availability of placement positions.
Individuals selected for HQDA Intern positions (i.e., funded by HQDA -- not the local organization) will be required to sign a mobility agreement. The mobility agreement commits the Army to providing training and permanent placement upon graduation. In turn, the intern commits to Army-wide geographical availability in order to receive the optimal training and permanent placement opportunities deemed at the time to be in the best interests of the Army.
