- AFGE Summer Interns
- The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union representing 600,000 federal and D.C. government workers nationwide and overseas. All throughout the year, each department at the headquarters hires interns to gain experience in their intended career. This year, a Communication's intern Necole Jackson interviewed some of them about their time spent here and how AFGE was helpful to them. Check out the blog, interviews, and pictures from the 2010 Interns.
