WASHINGTON — The Federal Communications Commission is continuing to do its part to ensure the next generation of engineers will consider a career in the world of communications and broadcasting.
This week, the FCC opened the application window for its second year-long Honors Engineer Program. This career development opportunity is open to recent current engineering students who will graduate in December 2018 in or Spring 2019, as well as recent graduates. Participants will add “public sector experience” to their résumés and may be considered for employment at the FCC once they complete the program.
“With the successful launch of the Honors Engineer Program earlier this year, we are now looking to hire a new group of top-notch engineers,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a press release. “This will maintain our commitment to replenishing and strengthening our engineering expertise here at the commission.”
The commission describes the application process as “highly competitive,” and selection will factor in “academic achievement, technical skills, engineering and extracurricular activities and demonstrated interest in government service and/or the communications sector,” according to the announcement.
Those interested should apply online via the USAJobs portal. The window closes Nov. 30.
