    Hello all! I've recently begun the process of applying for OCS upon graduating from college in 2019 (junior majoring in Accounting) and I've been wondering what to fill my summer with now that I don't need the typical accounting internship. I want to prepare myself as best as possible for being an officer (supposing I am accepted), but because officers handle a wide variety of jobs, I'm not entirely sure what line of work I should be pursuing in the meantime.

    I've spoken with the CG Aux in the area and am planning on volunteering with them as much as possible over the coming summer, but I do also need a job to pay the bills. I'm not asking for a specific internship or job (though if you have a great recommendation, I wouldn't mind ), but rather in general, what's best? A very skill specific internship (e.g. accounting), a research position at a local University, another government job, etc. I apologize if this question has been asked before, but the search bar isn't working and I couldn't find anything with the fair amount of manual searching I did. 

    Oh, and unfortunately, the nearest significant body of water is about 40 minutes away, so there aren't many opportunities to get marine work.

    Thanks!

    Hi, depending on what school you are attending, it may be possible to apply for CSPI. I'm not sure of the turn-around time when you are in the 2nd semester of your junior year. Look at gocoastguard.com and see if this might be something you are interested in. If so, call a recruiter as soon as possible. It may be too late for this summer, but it won't hurt to ask.

    Aside from that, accounting majors are needed in the Coast Guard too.

    Unfortunately I attend a rather...Caucasian-heavy school, so it doesn't fit the MSI requirement for CSPI. Otherwise I would've jumped on that opportunity! 

    And yes, that's why I'm considering an accounting internship despite not pursuing a career at an accounting firm...who knows, maybe somewhere down the road I could help the CG manage its underfunded budget!

    I understand your dilemma! My school also doesn't quite meet the minority percentage requirements for CSPI, but close. It was close enough that I made a few phone calls to see about some sort of waiver or exception, but they offered no leeway.

    As far as internships related to the Coast Guard, there is/was an internship program at the Coast Guard Research and Development Center sponsored by the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) that might fit the bill. I'm not sure if they have any specific offerings that would lean on your accounting skills, but the opportunities might be worth looking into. The opportunities would certainly offer good exposure to the Coast Guard and its variety of missions. After a quick Google search, I can't seem to find the CG RDC internship offerings for this summer, so maybe the program has been discontinued? I'd say it's definitely worth asking about.

    Good luck!

    Check out the CG Auxiliary University Program and see if they have any located near you.
