G2U (Government to University) Mentorship Program
Pittsburgh’s Federal Executive Board in collaboration with the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy is launching the G2U (Government to University) Mentorship Program. The goal of the program is to connect current federal employees based in Pittsburgh with CMU students to engage in discussions about federal service and available opportunities.
The program will utilize the LinkedIn Groups feature. To join the program:
- Go to this LinkedIn Group
- Click “Request to join” on the Group page
- Amber Klemetti from the Federal Executive Board is the owner of the group and will approve your access
Once approved, you will be given access to post to the group, view all members, share documents and videos, and message group members
Federal employees will share job vacancies, job fair information, relevant articles and free webinars. Students are encouraged to ask questions to the group regarding USAJOBS & applications, federal pay scales and internship/full-time opportunities. Participants can pose and answer questions in the entire group or send a private message to members of the group.
Student-Employer Connect Event
Friday, Nov. 15, 10 to 11:30 a.m., Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, Cohon University Center
