The Internship Experience Program (IEP) allows for non-temporary appointments that are expected to last the length of the academic program for which the intern is enrolled. IEP participants, while in the program, are eligible for noncompetitive promotions. This program allows for noncompetitive conversion into the competitive service following successful completion of all program requirements. Veteran’s preference applies.
