U.S. high school and college students now have help in finding summer and temporary jobs in the federal government with the launch of the Studentjobs.gov Web site by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

In April 2000, OPM and the Department of Education's Student Financial Assistance (SFA) office formed a partnership to develop Studentjobs.gov. For students looking to get into the work force, the site lists federal job openings and provides valuable insight into the hiring process, programs and benefits.

"By offering students easy access to all the information they need for their federal job search, we can help them simplify their search and show them why the government should be their employer of choice," said Steven R. Cohen, OPM's Acting Director.

SFA's Chief Operating Officer Greg Woods said, "We're delighted to partner with OPM to deliver a great new product to help students across the country find jobs in government."

Studentjobs.gov features include:

  • Links to student-employment pages for more than 50 federal agencies
  • Links to articles that profile student job opportunities
  • A link to the federal government's worldwide employment information database of permanent federal jobs
  • Email notification every 24 hours for newly posted vacancies that meet the student's personal job-search profile
  • A resume builder and online application tool

Studentjobs.gov complies fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act and includes both graphic and text versions. It provides an easy-to-use search tool for students to get information about federal employment opportunities.

A summer or temporary jobs is a great way for students to get foot-in-the-door of the federal workplace, making better paying full-time government jobs easier to get after graduation.
