Federal Government Statewide Conference

Federal Conference 2017

Each year FIU Career and Talent Development hosts the Federal Government Statewide Conference. The Conference is designed to bring representatives from various government entities together to discuss aspects of government employment.

We regularly have reps from the military, FBI, CIA, State Department, and many other branches of the federal government, present and eager to discuss what kind of jobs they offer, and how best to apply for them.

After the panel discussions on government employment, we hold a resource fair – a kind of Career Fair strictly for government employment. Other features of the Federal Government Statewide Conference include breakout sessions on varying topics led by distinguished speakers.

12th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference

Time: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Location: Graham Center (GC) Ballrooms, Modesto Maidique Campus

The event is free to FIU students and government agencies, $10 for non-FIU students, and $25 for career professionals.

Job Search Strategies

Networking Skills

Searching for an internship or a job is a job in itself. Attend this workshop to learn about tools and strategies to assist with your search. We will review resources for finding jobs (e.g. Panther JOBLink, LinkedIn, The Muse) and networking (e.g. student organizations, classmates, professional associations, LinkedIn company pages, on campus events), and will encourage you to create an action plan for your search.
