University Career Services and Partnership for Public Service is hosting three upcoming webinars in September and October. Participants will hear from Partnership for Public Service staff, federal employees, and agency recruiters, and will learn how to best leverage their skills and experiences to find the right federal fit.
Students can watch the webinar remotely, but must RSVP ahead of time for each webinar via HireMason so that we can send them the webinar login information. For any Mason faculty or staff interested in dialing in to the webinar, please email Rachael Miner at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dates, times and a brief description of each webinar are listed below.
“Preparing for the Presidential Management Fellows Application Process Webinar”; Tuesday, October 16th, 4pm – 5pm
The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is frequently cited as a highly prestigious program in the federal government. This student-focused webinar will teach your graduate students how to submit a strong application, show them how the program has changed with the implementation of the Pathways Programs, and provide insight into what happens after their application is submitted. Additionally, you’ll hear from new fellows, as well as agency PMF recruiters.
“Federal Interns and Entry-level Hire Roundtable Webinar”; Wednesday, October 24th, 1pm – 2pm
Does anyone really read my application to a federal job? How can my resume stand out in USAJOBS? What will I actually be doing at my federal internship this summer? Let your students hear the answers to these questions and more from entry-level hires and interns who have successfully—and recently—completed the federal application process. Your students will learn about what these successful applicants did to achieve their coveted federal positions and what types of projects they are working on now.
