Under a new agreement between GW and the McLean, Va.-based Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), business and engineering students will be targeted for internship and job recruitment.
As a target recruiting school for SAIC, a science, engineering and technology applications firm, GW joins the University of Maryland, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Virginia, among other institutions.
“Science Applications International Corporation is teaming with George Washington University to offer entry-level and intern positions related to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) work,” said Joanne Espinoza, staffing manager for SAIC’s ISR Group. “More than 200 interns are needed this summer in the areas of computer science, engineering and business.”
“This new partnership will offer significant career opportunities for GW students,” said James Barricelli, associate director for employer relations for the School’s F. David Fowler Career Center.
The Center has similar relationships with other firms, including Citigroup, GE, IBM and Johnson & Johnson.
A Fortune 500 company, SAIC and its subsidiaries have more than 40,000 employees worldwide. SAIC provides services and products to fill clients’ technology related-needs in such fields as national security, energy and environmental, health and cyber-security solutions.
