Working at FLHSMV
Build on your skills and training with an internship at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV).
FHP SkillBridge Internship
The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) SkillBridge program is an opportunity for Service members to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the last 180 days of service. SkillBridge connects Service members (officers or enlisted) with industry partners in real-world job experiences. The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), a division of FLHSMV, has partnered with Veterans Florida in the creation of an internship for separating or retiring active-duty service members under the SkillBridge Program. Separating or retiring service members interested in participating in the SkillBridge program can visit Veterans Florida to learn more.

“I learned a lot of new and improved technical and professional skills during my time as an intern and how to apply those skills to real-world situations. I would say my professionalism and communication abilities have greatly improved as a result. This internship was so valuable in enriching my technical background and allowing me to be eligible for the position I have accepted for my future career. I accepted a position as a solutions analyst for a software company in New York City, New York!”

“I learned about the internship from the FSU Career Fair. Beforehand, I only knew the basics about networking, but the skills I learned in the internship built on what I was learning in the classroom and really allowed me to flourish in and out of school. The best part of the internship was that I was able to learn from and work alongside knowledgeable professionals. I always knew I wanted to work in IT. The internship solidified my choice to strive for a career in network security. I’ve been hired to continue working with the networking team here at FLHSMV!”
Joseph, Former Information Systems Administration Intern
“I was recruited through the FSU Shadow Program. I learned a great deal about Cisco Networking Systems and VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). The best part of the program though was the team; everyone was eager to help me learn and progress as much as possible. This internship has acclimated me to being part of small teams, as well as shown me the ins and outs of working with a government agency. I’m headed to the Department of Defense in Washington D.C.!”
