Are you interested in working or interning for state or federal government? 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, an adjunct Northland faculty member and current employee of the National Park Service, 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, new (2021) changes to the application process including required tests you may have to pass when applying, etiquette, and more.
Significant attention will also be paid to resume development, including how a federal resume is different from private-sector resumes. She’ll share common mistakes, tips, and advice to increase your chances of landing your dream federal job or internship during this step-by-step in-person workshop.
To make the most of your time, please register and create your usajobs account prior to the seminar. If you don’t have a chance, profile creation information will also be covered in more depth during the workshop. Students should bring their laptop and expect to follow along throughout much of the workshop.
Positions in all sorts of fields are posted on usajobs.gov.
Attendance will automatically enter you into the monthly swag bag drawing through the Office of Career Services!
