Honest PSA: Don't Miss Federal Honors Programs Deadlines

Postby USAIRS » Sat Aug 22, 2009 12:10 pm

I know a lot of you are stressing out 100% and are totally lost in your OCI world, but it would be a really good idea to pay attention to the honors/slip programs before its too late. I don't know if this is right, but the SEC may have already filled up: http://www.sec.gov/jobs/shlpfaq.htm. A good list of federal jobs - though probably not complete - is here: http://www.vault.com/articles/Federal-G ... 736363.htm

Especially for those of you who are at schools that rely heavily on OCI, and constantly tell its students that "everyone does fine" (T-25, I'm looking at you) - you would be wise to not put all your eggs in one basket. Everyone does not do fine, not without some floundering and scrambling at least. Good luck!

Believe me, no T25 is telling students that, besides maybe Yale.

Perhaps the most comprehensive listing of Honors Programs is the Government Honors and Internship Handbook - http://www.law.arizona.edu/career/honorshandbook.cfm

Sign up for the email updates. Last year, at least one agency moved its deadline earlier with very little notice, and the Handbook emails was the only way many applicants found out :shock:

Yes, this is a bump.
Not much time left on the DOJ clock. Its a rolling basis, as far as I know, so try not to wait until the last minute-they may be all hired up. This also goes for the various agencies. Your chances are much better if you apply today than if you apply two weeks from now.

Good luck!

Just a few hours left to submit DOJ apps...

Not too late for most Agencies.

Hope you all are doing alright in OCIs. Good luck!
