Part One - Find & Apply for Jobs/Internships with Federal Government Agencies

The Federal Government offers a multitude of career and internship opportunities, but most students are stymied by what is often a very lengthy and confusing application process. Whether you have already targeted Uncle Sam 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!

----Friday, October 14th 10-11am with Q&A to follow----
Led by Marie Koko, Career & Internship Specialist at L&S Career Services


Part Two - Write a Winning Federal Resume

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, keywording, and how to properly match your skills to the position you seek.  NOTE: This workshop is best suited to those who attended the Federal Find & Apply workshop on 10/14, or who already have some familiarity with Federal hiring.

----Friday, October 21st 10-11am with Q&A to follow----
Led by Marie Koko, Careers & Internship Specialist at L&S Career Services


Part Three - Find & Apply for Jobs/Internships with State Government Agencies

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.

----Friday, November 4th 11am-12pm with Q&A to follow----
Led by Erika Ryerson and Lisa Dally from the WI Department of Administration

No RSVP necessary. These workshops are open to any UW undergrad, grad student, post-grad, or alum in any major, program, or college with valid UW ID# (not recommended for International Students since the Federal Government requires US citizenship for all positions).
