Intern Program Overview
Serco’s Training and Experience Program (STEP) is designed to provide college students an internship opportunity to gain meaningful, hands-on work experience in a professional environment. STEP emphasizes developing the next generation’s workforce. Our goal is to build a roadmap that leads you to a long, rewarding and challenging career with Serco. We will work with you to determine your desired career path and the correct steps to get you to your goals.
Outside of gaining hands-on experience, you will attend training sessions taught by skilled leaders in our company. These training sessions range from finance, personality in the workplace, presentation skills, resume building, and more. In addition, Serco emphasizes being environmentally friendly and making a positive difference in the community. We challenge our interns to develop and execute on at least one group initiative that will benefit the office and/or local community. Projects in the past have included a park cleanup and a recycling drive.
This internship spans over 12 weeks—11 weeks worked with 1 week off for Fourth of July and half days on Fridays. You will work with your mentor to identify the best times for you to come in and leave work. You will work no more than an average of 36 hours a week.

This impacts the Navy by capturing and correcting engineering discrepancies in process during the ship construction to deliver a better ship. In your role, you will observe electrical and electronic component installations and testing. You will become well versed in engineering principles and evaluate designs in terms of meeting capabilities and efficiency of installation and test. You will perform engineering work by analyzing system installation and test of shipboard power plants and distribution system, as well as combat and weapons systems.
