January 17, 2023 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Hey Hoyas! I don’t know about you, but the beginning of the semester has hit me like a ton of bricks. I don’t know if this is what I get for eating too many Christmas cookies, or what, but uff-da, as my mother-in-law would say. 
And it hasn’t even snowed yet. Not sure whether you think it is a good thing or a bad thing – but it always does seem to be a thing when it happens. Anyways, I digress. This semester is off to a hopping start, and there is lots happening on the government, education & nonprofit side of things. So much so, that I find myself in need of help. Whose help, you ask? Why, says I, yours, of course! In all seriousness, I am hiring a student for part-time work with me this semester.

The role, a student industry ambassador, involves meeting with students one on one in a peer setting. You’d primarily be helping students start their federal resumes, answering questions on how to use USAJobs, or offering advice on getting those Hillternships. I am looking for someone who has *some* experience in the above areas, but mostly someone who is willing to learn, and accompany others as we figure this thing out called careers. The position is hybrid, though we do have tons of meeting space available at Cawley. And the hours are flexible. In the past students have done appointments in the evening, or camped out at Cawley during the day (did I mention we often have lots of food here?) 

If you are interested, you can find the deets at this SEO posting, or you can always reach out to me.

The U.S. could hit its debt ceiling within days.
Here’s what you need to know.

“If the U.S. reaches its debt ceiling, the Treasury will have to take ‘extraordinary measures.’ The U.S. has never defaulted on its debt. But Yellen warns that if Congress fails to act, that may happen as soon as June.”
