De-Mystifying the Federal Government Application Process: The Government Honors and Internship Handbook

Published in the August 23rd, 2011, Advisor

2Ls and 3Ls: Application deadlines for many federal positions are in the fall. Prepare your materials as soon as possible.

 

Some students who are interested in Federal Government employment during law school or after graduation find the process of locating and applying for positions daunting. We have a resource to cure that problem.

To make available information more accessible, we have acquired The Government Honors and Internship Handbook, a comprehensive listing of current federal hiring programs for law students. The Government Handbook also includes a short section on state and local government offices that are hiring.

Updated in August each year (and revised as necessary throughout the year), the Handbook is an outstanding resource for public service-oriented students. Here are a few examples of the government agencies planning to hire:

  • Central Intelligence Agency
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • Department of Education
  • Federal Communications Commission
  • Department of the Interior
  • Small Business Administration
  • Smithsonian Institution

The Handbook is available in the Career Center and online at: http://www.law.arizona.edu/career/honorshandbook.cfm. Look in MyLaw under the Career Services tab for password information. Please do not share the password with any non-UO law students; this is a resource available only to students attending subscribing schools.
