D.C.-based Cavarocchi-Ruscio-Dennis Associates, L.L.C., searching for four Fall 2017 Policy Fellows. Deadline to apply is July 25
Over the past few years we have had 22 outstanding SUS students or recent graduates work in our full-time Policy Fellow positions (paid at $11.50/hour) here in the firm on Capitol Hill. We are now beginning the search for four new Policy Fellows for the Fall period from September 5 through December 15. We need your help in getting the word out to any of your students or recent graduates who might be interested in living and working with us in Washington during that time.
The duties are varied and range from attending hearings and markups, writing articles on the hearings or other legislative developments, arranging and organizing meetings in Congressional offices, preparing Hill Day materials, providing general support here in the firm, and many other “duties as assigned” that pop up for all of us. It’s a great experience and all of our Fellows have gone on to continued success in government, Congress, lobbying, graduate school, the foreign service or media.
Students or recent graduates who are interested should send a cover letter, resume, and one short writing sample to David Eaton at DEaton@dc-crd.com. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me or David by email or by phone at 202-484-1100. The deadline for applications is July 25.
Virtual Internship Opportunities with the State Department and other US Government Agencies
The U.S. Department of State’s Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) eInternship program is bigger and better than ever! This year, we have over 1,300 vacancies at 33 U.S. Government agencies. The 524 projects available this year can be found here. Students can apply between July 2 – 26 on USAJOBS to their top three projects.
VSFS is a way for the American public and government employees to collaborate on projects of global importance. Selected applicants will contribute up to 10 hours per week from September 2017 through May 2018 working on projects across the U.S. government. As eInterns, students will play an important role in advancing the federal government’s reach in diplomacy, development, space, journalism, trade, environment, health, agriculture, technology, housing and other essential initiatives. Together, we can create a more effective, efficient, and smarter government that takes advantage of an engaged and participatory citizenry.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in university level courses in the U.S. or abroad. Last year, we had students in programs ranging from undergraduate to PhD levels, both full and part-time, taking courses in person or online. A resume, transcript, and statement of interest are required as part of the application process. Interviews may be conducted in August. Einternships are unpaid and do not require a security clearance or travel.
