A Summer Experience
Are you looking for a summer experience that allows you to work along side people who manage the day-to-day business of our Nation? The Federal Government may have the right opportunity for you. Summer job opportunities are available in Federal agencies throughout the United States and cover a wide variety of positions.
How to Find Summer Job Opportunities
Use the Office of Personnel Management's USAJOBS. USAJOBS consists of:

How to File With Federal Agencies
Once you have located the summer job and are sure that you meet the work experience and/or education requirements, complete the application form(s) requested in the agency's vacancy announcement. Be sure to specify the title of the job and the vacancy announcement number on your application. If additional information is needed, it will be included in the agency's vacancy announcement and should be submitted at the time you apply.
Incomplete applications will not be considered. If you have questions about your application after it has been submitted, you should contact the agency directly. You should provide the agency with enough information to easily locate your application (e.g., name, social security number, summer job vacancy announcement number, job title, and date submitted).
