We are looking for a facilitator for a one-hour session “How to Network Yourself into a Government Job.” This is a great opportunity to connect with up to 180 students interested in careers in government.

This conference offers you with the opportunity to provide 180 students with pertinent information regarding developmental strategies for students seeking federal, state, or local government opportunities. We would like to invite you to help us facilitate our “How to Network Yourself into a Government Job” workshop designed to help students develop the mindset and strategies to network with federal, state and local government recruiters and contacts.
