Federal Government Statewide Conference @ Graham Center Ballrooms
Jun 21 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Each year FIU Career and Talent Development hosts the Federal Government Statewide Conference. The Conference is designed to bring representatives from various government entities together to discuss aspects of government employment.

We regularly have reps from the military, FBI, CIA, State Department, and many other branches of the federal government, present and eager to discuss what kind of jobs they offer, and how best to apply for them.

After the panel discussions on government employment, we hold a resource fair – a kind of Career Fair strictly for government employment. Other features of the Federal Government Statewide Conference include breakout sessions on varying topics led by distinguished speakers.

12th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference

Date: June 21, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Location: Graham Center (GC) Ballrooms, Modesto Maidique Campus

The event is free to FIU students and government agencies, $10 for non-FIU students, and $25 for career professionals.
