Hey guys! The weather is changing so you know what that means…the semester is winding down and this is the time that some of you will start to think about jobs.  This week’s resource is the Government Honors and Internship Handbook.  It is another resource geared towards those interested in public service work.

The handbook can be found at https://www.law.arizona.edu/career/GovHonors12-13/tablecontents.cfm? . In order to get into the website, you will need the login and password. For those who are interested, email Linda Lorenz.  You should also contact Linda if you would like to be on her distribution list and receive a short list every week of upcoming deadlines.

Once logged into the site, you will find a table of contents that lists applications by year, i.e. 1L, 2L, or 3L.  The table of contents is also broken up by application deadline and agency name.  There are additional links for information on salaries, what to expect during background check and web resources for survival.

If you scroll past the table of contents, you will find fellowships and internships listed in alphabetical order.  Some of the job postings will indicate if they have been updated and I found this to be a good thing because it lets users know that someone is keeping the website up to date.

When you click on a specific internship or fellowship, you can get more information about the position including deadlines, when and how to submit an application, who to contact for questions, program requirements and the application process.

There are a few reasons why I like this resource and why I think it is particularly helpful. I like that there is a date at the very top that lets users know when the entire website was updated. I also like that it is easy to use. Although it looks boring, it is extremely easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for. Lastly, I like that most of the available fellowships and internships have all the information that a student may need in order to apply for the position.

If you have any questions about this or any other resource I have blogged about, please see Linda Lorenz in the CDO.  Until next time, Happy Job Hunting!
