A paid summer internship in instructional design / technology....(thanks to an alum)

A 2005 alum got in touch this afternoon to let us know about an amazing internship (paid!) opportunity in training and instructional technology. If you're interested, email Kaitlyn Bergan at

Datatel's Training Team is recruiting for an enthusiastic person who is looking for "real world" and operations experience.

In this position, you will get exposure to different areas within training and experience what it is like to work in a corporate environment. The ideal person would be someone interested in curriculum development and instructional design exposure.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

The ideal candidate is a college sophomore or junior who is pursuing a degree in Curriculum Development or Instructional Design/Business Administration or has a genuine interest in Training. You have to be organized, detail oriented, and have the ability to demonstrate resourcefulness and perseverance. Further, the successful candidate must be articulate and have the ability to communicate in a positive and professional manner. Experience with Microsoft Office applications is required and experience with Databases, Lotus Notes or SharePoint is a plus.

This is a paid internship, which may be eligible for academic credit. Ideally we would like the intern to start in May 14, 2007 and work throughout the summer break for 40 hours/week. This position is located at our corporate office in Fairfax, Virginia.
