Students Interested in Paid Internships with the Federal Government and Graduating Seniors and Recent Graduates Interested in Employment Opportunities

NAFEO will be hosting two Career Development Conferences for HBCU students in Atlanta, Georgia. The first conference will be held on March 2-3, 2016. This conference targets students of all class levels (Freshman-Graduate) in the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and in Business Management or Economics, who are interested in paid Internships with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), or other Federal agencies. The second workshop will be held on April 6-7, 2016 and targets graduating seniors and recent graduates (within the last two years) in the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and in Business Management or Economics, who are searching for employment opportunities. The purpose of the conferences is to prepare students for career opportunities with the Federal government. Students will also have an opportunity to meet and interact with USDA leadership and other employees. 

On day one of the Career Development Conference, NAFEO will conduct a workshop on preparing students for careers in the Federal government, which will include sessions on Federal Resume Writing, Strategizing, Interviewing Techniques, and brief overviews of specific careers at agencies with USDA, including the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). On day two of the Career Development Conference, NAFEO will conduct a workshop on Networking, Dressing for Success, Cultural and Generational differences in the workplace, and Career Tips from successful executives. Students will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with executives and staff from USDA.
