The Career Center is proud to announce that it will hold the annual Federal Agency Week from March 24 to March 27. Representatives from three government agencies will be here at the Mount to meet with students about possible internship and employment opportunities. These representatives are interested in meeting students of all majors, so keep reading to learn more about these great upcoming events!
Federal Agency Week will kick off on Tuesday, March 25, with the United States Secret Service. This agency is in charge of two missions: protecting national leaders, including the President, Vice President, their families and visiting foreign heads of state, and carrying out various criminal investigations, including the reason it was first established: counterfeiting. The United States Secret Service is guided by the agency's five core values: justice, duty, courage, honesty and loyalty. Interested students should attend the information session on Tuesday in the O'Hara Meeting Room from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On Wednesday, March 26, representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be at the Mount. As a national security and law enforcement organization, the FBI protects and defends the United States against various threats and enforces our country's criminal laws. The FBI also assists local and state authorities in handling complex dangers that they cannot handle alone. The information session for this agency will also be held in the O'Hara Meeting Room from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday.
The final agency to attend the Mount during this Federal Agency Week is the National Security Agency on Thursday, March 27. As the agency's name suggests, the NSA protects national security interests by observing their following core values: lawfulness, honesty, integrity, fairness, accountability, loyalty, collaboration, innovation and learning. This information session will be held in the Laughlin Auditorium from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday.
If any student has questions about one or more of these federal agencies but is unable to attend the information session, please contact the Career Center to set up an appointment with a counselor. Please join us in welcoming these agencies to the Mount this week. We hope to see you at the information sessions!
