Public service jobs focus of Federal Career Week

March 18, 2010

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University will be sponsoring three major events in conjunction with hosting its second Federal Career Week March 21-27.

The Why Not U.S.? Federal Career Week events are free and designed to help WMU students determine if federal service is right for them and provide an opportunity to interact with working public servants. It also will highlight the benefits of public service and give students tools they can use to find as well as apply for federal employment.

Tuesday, March 23, will feature an interactive workshop on Finding and Applying for Federal Opportunities at 3 p.m. on the first floor of Ellsworth Hall. Seated at workstations, attendees will be guided through the federal application process, learning how to write resumes geared toward finding federal jobs, and actually searching for and beginning to apply for positions.

Wednesday, March 24, Canceled—Federal Internship Panel in the Brown and Gold Room of the Bernhard Center has been canceled.

Thursday, March 25, will feature a Federal Mix and Mingle from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Multicultural Center of the Trimpe Building. Participants will be able to interact with federal employees and ask questions about public service. The gathering is open to all WMU students, regardless of their majors.

The 2010 Federal Career Week events are being sponsored by WMU's Career and Student Employment Services through a Call to Serve grant from the Partnership for Public Service. The grant helps institutions generate awareness across their campuses about public service jobs.
