I attended a very interesting talk today at the annual Delaware Space Grant Consortium meeting by Margaret Maher of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. She described their active internship program. I came away with the impression that there are many internships and they are a key path to permanent positions. I understand NASA has the goal of hiring recent graduates. Our physics and astronomy students should definitely keep these opportunities in mind. Some Useful Links:
