Over the years, LinQuest has proven its ability to offer excellent opportunities for those interested in growing their careers. In 2021, LinQuest continued this long-standing tradition. The LinQternship internship program, which offers positions ranging from Human Resources to Cybersecurity Analysis, allows future professionals to gain insight and experience in fields that may later become their careers. By working with state-of-the-art technology and engaging with some of the best professionals in the defense and aerospace industry, LinQuest offers LinQterns an exciting and unique opportunity to support some of the DoD’s most challenging missions.

It is no wonder so many LinQterns choose to stay on as full-time team members after the conclusion of their internships. At LinQuest, nothing is more valuable than the people who comprise the company. This value is certainly extended towards our LinQterns, as multiple team members serve as mentors to challenge them and promote their professional growth. This is achieved through teamwork on all fronts. LinQterns consistently engage with and support multiple team members within the company. Through this collaboration, many LinQterns are given the opportunity to provide LinQuest with solutions to aid in our industry-leading innovations and customer satisfaction.

LinQuest is known for providing excellence, from concept to capability. The LinQternship program at LinQuest is yet another demonstration of that excellence. As LinQuest continues to grow, it remains dedicated to providing innovative and high-quality technologies, solutions, and services to national security and industry customers focused on the convergence of C4ISR, information, and cyber systems.

LinQterns, we’d like to offer a special thank you for your unparalleled dedication and effort. Happy National LinQtern Day!
