CNS interns present summer projects
Last month, CNS’s 47 summer interns gave employees an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the valuable work they performed at Pantex and Y‑12 over the past 10 weeks.
Of the interns (11 at Pantex and 36 at Y-12), eight returned to CNS for a second stint. The students represented 24 universities, including the United States Military Academy at West Point, and worked with one of six CNS organizations. More than 20 were part of NNSA’s Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program or other university partnership programs and consortia.
Amanda Muirhead, Talent Management consultant and Y‑12 Summer Intern program manager, said, “This 2018 summer intern class was an extremely bright and engaged group, and they served as a great reminder of the importance of taking initiative in your work and in what you care about. Something unique about this class in particular were the friendships that were made and care they displayed for each other. This class not only demonstrated they are book smart, but that they are overall well‑rounded people who we had the pleasure to get to know.”
Nicole Eminger, acting senior manager of Diversity and Talent Management, said, “Last fall when we began reviewing resumes, I knew that the caliber of students for the 2018 Intern Program was going to raise the bar. This group of interns certainly did not disappoint. As a whole, the intern class inspired me and reminded me that tomorrow’s workforce is innovative, passionate to affect change, willing to learn, and ready to take on any challenge we put in front of them.”
Twenty‑three interns were selected to receive full‑time employment offers to join CNS after graduation with an additional 11 being considered for returning internships.
