The College/Career Center provides extensive testing and financial aid information and assistance for researching careers and colleges. This information is available in various forms including books, CDs and computer online and software programs.
How Federal Jobs are Filled: Most Federal agencies fill their jobs by advertising all openings on their website:
The website lists over 16,000 jobs daily which will allow you to apply directly to the agency. Today very few positions require a written test. Applications can be submitted in a variety of formats: on- line, paper form, or the OF-612 form. All information on federal jobs is free to the applicant(s). While the process is now very similar to that in private industry, there are still significant differences due to the many laws, executive orders, and regulations that govern federal employment.

Students may check the following website which provides access to many federal sources for internships, work study, scholarships, and summer job opportunities which may lead to job offers after college graduation: www.studentjobs.gov.
