Politically appointed positions are a prestigious and impactful part of a public service career. Appointees are non-career officials appointed by the President, to work across a wide variety of levels and performing a wide range of tasks both within the White House and across executive branch agencies. There are currently about 4,000 appointed positions across the federal government. In addition to high-level officials such as Secretaries (and Assistant/Deputy Secretaries), over 1,500 appointees serve in supporting roles including scheduling, speechwriting, and policymaking. This session hosted by FIU in DC and The White House Presidential Personnel Office will introduce you to how recently graduated and highly experienced FIU alumni can navigate the political appointment process.
