Graduate Intern Program

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Raleigh, NC – Oak Grove’s corporate headquarters in Raleigh, NC provides internships for two graduate students from North Carolina State University and one from East Carolina University. 

The interns are being exposed to various elements of the defense contracting industry to include accounting and contracts functions.  In order to receive advanced degree credits, the interns must work with their direct supervisor to establish performance objectives and receive satisfactory mid-term and final evaluations from the management team.    

Oak Grove identifies capability gaps within the company, and then works with the North Carolina University System to find graduate students that might offer a new approach to fill those gaps.  Graduate students from Cross Cultural Communications programs serve as scenario developers; business students assist with the operations and contracting functions; and Oak Grove currently has a technical communications intern working to improve social media strategies and instructional systems design.   

“We’re excited to have these students provide us a service and, in turn, allow them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning advanced degree credits.” said Robert Jones, VP Human Resources. 

Oak Grove’s eLearning division in Alexandria, VA is following suit.  Letters of intent are going out to universities around the beltway to solicit graduate students who are looking to gain hands-on experience in multimedia production with an emphasis on distance learning for the summer 2013 semester.
