Federal Opportunities Day for students
Oct. 5, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students who are considering pursuing careers with the federal government will have a chance to learn about their options during the University's first Federal Opportunities Day, set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, in the Bernhard Center.
WMU has established the day as part of its Why Not U.S.? campaign to inform students about public service employment. The event, which requires prior registration, also provides a mechanism for federal departments and agencies to interact with students and recruit qualified candidates for internships and jobs.
Federal Opportunities Day is similar to a career fair, so students are encouraged to dress professionally and bring resumes tailored for federal employment. All students in any major are eligible to attend.
To register for the event, visit wmich.edu/career and click BroncoJobs. Registrations will be accepted until all spaces are filled.
