The Administration is looking to hire 40 “entry point” individuals into what are called Schedule C positions at various federal agencies in the coming months, for a start date sometime in June. Schedule C positions are “political” slots, as opposed to “career” slots, so they end when the Administration is over. But they are typically higher status and more enjoyable jobs than most “career” jobs because you are a representative of the Administration.
The point of this program is to increase diversity within the Administration as well as to train a future generation of leaders in basic public policy skills. Applicants need not be subject-matter experts, as they will receive training in the individual agency for which they are selected. In addition to students graduating this May, the program is also appropriate for folks who are a couple years out of school.
Outstanding Truman students who meet these criteria and want to be considered: Send a resume and cover letter including if there are specific agencies of interest to: Corey_M_Then@who.eop.gov – (TSU ’11). Mr. Then will make sure your materials get to the right person and will forward a more formal packet describing the program to those who apply.
Corey M. Then, Deputy Associate Counsel, The White House
