Spring Government Careers Workshop Series

All workshops take place at SuccessWorks, 711 State St. Suite 300

Getting Started with Jobs/Internships in WI State Government Agencies
Friday, February 16th @ 12pm
Led by Lisa Dally from the WI Department of Administration
Would you like to intern or work for the State of Wisconsin? Come to this session to learn how to find your fit, how the hiring process works from an insider's perspective, and gain some tips and tricks for making the search process easier.  NOTE: The basic concepts taught in this workshop are applicable to a state government agency job search in most US states.

Getting Started with Jobs/Internships in Federal Agencies
Tuesday, February 20th @4pm
Led by Marie Koko, Career & Internship Specialist at SuccessWorks
The Federal Government offers a multitude of job and internship opportunities, but you might be frustrated and confused by the application process. We can help you cut through the confusion. 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!

Write a Winning Federal Resume
Tuesday, February 27th @4pm
Led by Marie Koko, Careers & Internship Specialist at SuccessWorks
The content, style, length, and formatting of a successful Federal resume is quite different from the resume style you use for jobs/internships 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!), and how to properly match your skills to the position you seek.  NOTE: It is helpful to have attended the Federal Getting Started workshop on 2/20, or have some familiarity with Federal hiring.

These workshops are open to any UW undergrad, grad student, post-grad, or alumus/-a in any major, program, or college with valid UW ID#   IDs will be scanned at the door.

These events are not recommended for International Students since the Federal Government requires US citizenship for all positions

No RSVP necessary
