USAJOBS to Revamp Interface- by Elizabeth Oguntoye MPA Graduate Assistant

It’s been a long time coming! Finally, there have been talks from federal officials (more specifically Director Katherine Archuleta from theOffice of Personnel Management) about revamping its job board- USAJOBS.  Director Archuleta wants to ensure that the USAJOBS platform would be a portal that applicants need and hiring managers find helpful.  Part of the process will stem from using new technology tools to help agencies refine their recruiting efforts. For example, the new job board, set to be public in early 2016, will target unrepresented demographic groups, capture the increasingly short attention of young people and attract science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) applicants.  If you like to read more check out this article from Government Executive Management:

PAD780 Internship Tuition Waiver Program for Spring 2015!

We know that many MPA students are interested in internships to assist in your career planning or career transitions.  Thankfully, the Differential Tuition Committee has made available ten (10) $1,000 tuition waivers for students to enroll in PAD 780.  Below is information on how you can apply for one of these waivers and get your career and internships planning for next semester started!

ABOUT PAD 780:  This 3 credit, hybrid (half online, half classroom) course helps students reflect on their internship experiences.  It requires 300 hours of fieldwork in an internship of your choosing.  The course meets several Wednesday evenings throughout the Spring 2015 semester.  Register for this course today on CUNYFirst!

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for the tuition waiver,  you must have at least a 3.0 GPA, completed at least 15 credits, and have a degree completion form on file.  We also ask that at the time of application, you have secured an internship site.

HOW TO APPLY: To apply for the tuition waiver, log into John Jay Careers Online and search for Job ID #17254– “PAD 780 Tuition Waiver Program”.  You’ll need to upload your resume, an unofficial transcript, and a 1 page cover letter that responds to the question “How will this internship complement your academic graduate studies in public administration and further your career goals?”

If you have any questions please reach out to your MPA Career Program Graduate Assistants, Peter Federman (pfederman@jjay.cuny.edu) or Elizabeth Oguntoye (eoguntoye@jjay.cuny.edu).
