Are you interested in successfully finding and applying for federal positions? This special three-part webinar series is designed specifically for individuals seeking government jobs and internships, and is open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as other alumni in the Upper Valley area.

Faculty and staff that would like to learn more about current opportunities in the federal government are also encouraged to attend to gain additional information that can be shared with students they are advising.

Participants will hear from Partnership staff, federal employees, and agency recruiters, and will learn how to best leverage their skills and experiences to find the right federal fit.

These sessions are offered by the Partnership for Public Service, and will be broadcast here at Dartmouth in the Class of 1930 Room at the Rockefeller Center.  Staff from the Rockefeller Center and/or Career Services will be available at each session to answer any specific questions about Dartmouth resources to support finding and funding internships and career opportunities in the public sector.

Federal Intern and Entry-level Hire Roundtable
Wednesday, October 24 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST

Does anyone really read my application to a federal job? How can my resume stand out in USAJOBS? What will I actually be doing at my federal internship? Students will hear the answers to these questions and more from entry-level hires and interns who have successfully—and recently—completed the federal application process. Participants will learn about what these successful applicants did to achieve their coveted federal position and what types of projects they are working on now.
