Are you interested in working or interning for a federal agency, office, or department (such as those on the list below)?
If so, your first step is to understand how to search and apply for positions through USAjobs.gov. This process can be very complex, but we’ve got your back!
Caroline Twombly, a current Yosemite National Park employee, will provide an overview of setting up your USAjobs account, searching for opportunities, understanding the fine print and various hiring authorities, document uploading, what to expect during the hiring process—including potential assessment tests—and a ton of pointers on developing a federal resume (which is different from all other resumes).
Enjoy pizza and refreshments as you follow along with her tutorial on your own device. Questions are encouraged and will be addressed throughout, but you can also choose to stay after for an optional Q&A session if helpful following the tutorial. Space is limited, so please register through Handshake to confirm your spot. Advanced registration is not required, but is greatly appreciated so we know how much food to order.
