Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.
We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Our 22,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
More than 6,000 students applied for a chance to intern at Booz Allen in 2016. Just 320 of the most creative minds were selected. Along with the internship came an opportunity to participate in Booz Allen Hamilton’s Summer Games: a fun, intense, and competitive internship project that assesses each student’s interests, passions, and skillsets before assigning them to teams that align with each individual’s goals.
The projects—called challenges—are by no means cookie-cutter. Every summer, interns are asked to create powerful solutions to real-world client and societal challenges by blending approaches born out of combining management consulting skills with advanced technical capabilities. Each team is assigned Booz Allen mentors who bring deep subject matter expertise and help guide the team throughout the Games.
“Every summer, interns are asked to create powerful solutions to real-world client and societal challenges.”
In 2016, teams helped develop apps that give military commanders an easy way to track real-time and open-sourced information about developing situations like attacks, human trafficking, and the spread of disease.
At the end of their 10-week program, teams compete over three days in a series of pitch sessions to Booz Allen’s senior leaders. Teams are eliminated each day until the best of the bunch face off. Winners are awarded funding and support to evolve their projects into end-to-end solutions.
On top of their team challenges, interns are also encouraged to pursue a personal area of interest, spending 10 percent of their summers developing a product or solution that solves a current issue they are passionate about through the Student Incubator Competition. Toward the end of the Games, interns individually pitch their ideas to a panel of judges for assistance to bring their solution to life.
By 2020, more than 50 percent of the workforce will be comprised of millennial talent. And the war for this talent is raging as organizations address a generational shift and compete for the small pool of future leaders with real passion for STEM. Booz Allen is reinventing how it attracts and retains top, entry-level talent – offering millennials the opportunity to: help their country; protect and serve citizens better; and help clients solve tough challenges.
Since its creation in 2014, the Summer Games program has grown ten-fold, and 90 percent of eligible interns are accepting full-time offers.
With their eyes on the prize, the possibilities are endless for Booz Allen Summer Games interns.
