13th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference

2018 Federal Government Statewide Conference Flyer ver 3

This 13th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference is designed to bring representatives from various government entities together to discuss aspects of government employment, best practices, employment opportunities, and several other relevant topics geared for students, alumni, professionals, and veterans. After the breakout sessions on government employment, we host a resource fair for participating agencies and students will get the opportunity to visit and network.

The Federal Government Statewide Conference provides students the opportunity to:
• Learn about employment opportunities in a “government only” environment
• Offset “myths” about working for the federal government
• Create early awareness of government employment opportunities
• Break employment time barriers and stereotypes
