April 26, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: Lots of new

Hey Hoyas! I hope you are all doing well and had a fun time this weekend enjoying the wonderful weather. I know a lot of things are taking up your time, so I wanted to be sure to let you know about some really cool news. In the past week, I’ve seen lots of new posting for federal internships that are now PAID. Among these are the White House Internship Program (paid for the first time in it’s 50 year + history), USAID, and the Fall 2022 State Department internship, whose deadline passed last week. 

This is part of a trend that many of us are seeing, with the Biden Administration making good on promises to recruit a more diverse federal workforce. These announcements often occur without warning, so I am doing my best to alert you all as soon as I know. If you haven’t already, please be sure to check out my video series on federal hiring, and have a draft federal resume uploaded to USAJobs. It can come in handy in those fast turnaround postings. 

Also, if you don’t think you want to work directly for the federal government, but are interested in still staying in the space, be sure to check out this new resource on Popular Federal Government Contractors. This is, by no means, an exhaustive list of companies that work with our government, but it can be a great alternative to working directly for Uncle Sam, or for one of the larger consulting firms. 

As if that isn’t enough information for you, also be sure to check out the following resources great as you start out your career in public service. 

Last but not least, I am looking to hire my next student to work with me next year! This person would be helping to create and edit my newsletters, and that of our pre-law advisor, Andreas. Have ideas about how to make these newsletters better? Be sure to check out the position description here

I am still doing appointments, so don’t hesitate to sign up to meet with me to chat about any career questions you may have.

Even in government…follow the money.

I often mention to job seekers that when you are looking for jobs, it is important to follow the money. Even in the area of public service. Case in point? This awesome article from Forbes breaks down where the money from the Biden Administration’s recent $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill is going. If you are job-hunting, be sure to note which agencies are getting this pot of money. You’ll likely see a jump in hiring in those agencies and areas where the money is directed.
