Spring Government Careers/Internships Workshop Series

State and federal agencies offer many opportunities for history majors.  Check out these workshops on finding jobs and internships, sponsored by WUD Society and Politics and L&S Career Services.  All are held at Union South, so check TITU for the room. (Note that the federal government requires U.S. citizenship for all positions.)

Part One - Find & Apply for Jobs/Internships with State Government Agencies
Friday, February 17th 12-1pm with Q&A to follow

Led by Lisa Dally from the WI Department of Administration
Learn how to find your fit with the many opportunities available in Wisconsin state government agencies, how the hiring process works from an insider's perspective, and gain some tips and tricks for making the job search easier. NOTE: The basic concepts taught in this workshop are applicable to a state government agency job search in most US states.

Part Two - Find & Apply for Jobs/Internships with Federal Government Agencies
Friday, February 24th 12-1pm with Q&A to follow
Led by Marie Koko, Career & Internship Specialist at L&S Career Services

The Federal Government offers a multitude of career and internship opportunities, but most students are frustrated by what is often a very lengthy and confusing application process. Whether you have already targeted the federal government as an employer, or know absolutely nothing about Federal opportunities yet, this is the workshop you need to attend. You are guaranteed to gain an understanding of: the best way to navigate and apply on USAJobs, Federal Pathways opportunities for both interns and recent grads, the different types of Federal hiring, and much, much more!

Part Three - Write a Winning Federal Resume 
Friday, March 3rd 12-1pm with Q&A to follow

Led by Marie Koko, Careers & Internship Specialist at L&S Career Services

The content, style, length, and formatting of a successful Federal resume is quite different from the resume style you use outside of government. This workshop will teach you the tips and tricks that will help your resume stand out to Federal hiring managers. We'll talk about KSAs (What are those? Come and find out!), keywording, and how to properly match your skills to the position you seek. 

NOTE: It is helpful to have attended the Federal Find & Apply workshop on 2/24, or have some familiarity with Federal hiring.
