The Navy is offering sailors a chance to work at companies such as Qualcomm, Apple and Tesla as part of the Secretary of the Navy Tours with Industry program, or SNTWI.
SNTWI is open to active-duty and full-time suppport sailors in paygrades E-6 to O-6. Eligibility is based on individual community needs.
“The SNTWI program provides a venue for exceptional sailors to experience innovative business practices for between 10 and 12 months,” said Lt. Christina Johns, SNTWI program coordinator. “Navy fellows are fully immersed in company practices and will be actively engaged in projects and company operations.”
Communities will submit the names of their selectees to the director of SNTWI no later than Feb. 22. Final selection will be made by the Community Distribution Division, and communities will notify those selected.
Applicants must be high performing and within physical standards of readiness, the Navy says. Applicants also must be within three months of their projected rotation date by September 2019 to be eligible.
Sailors selected for this program incur a service obligation of three times the number of months they take part in the SNTWI program, or 30-36 months.
“Past fellows were assigned to VM Ware, Qualcomm, Apple Inc., Boeing, Tesla, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, GE Digital, Amazon, FedEx, Space X, LinkedIn and USAA,” Johns said.
