Military To Maritime: connecting veterans to opportunity

When those who served our nation return home, we owe them a fair shake along with our gratitude. Events like yesterday’s Military 2 Maritime information and recruiting session, hosted by the American Maritime Partnership in Jacksonville, Florida, help steer our veterans toward the opportunities available in the maritime industry.

We at the Maritime Administration (MARAD) are proud to be associated with an industry that doesn't just open its doors to America's veterans, but actively helps them navigate the transition to civilian careers. Through licensing and certification information, support for maritime academies, and our work with stakeholders, MARAD is actively engaged in making this transition easier...

FHWA's Pennsylvania Division sets new mark for seniority

From the first day I became Administrator, it was clear that the real strength of the Federal Highway Administration is its people.  We serve the American public effectively because of our team of talented and dedicated employees.

Those words certainly fit three of the folks in our Pennsylvania Division. Between them, they have combined for an incredible 147 years of federal service, most of it with FHWA. In fact, two of them began their careers with the Bureau of Public Roads...before FHWA even existed.

Office of Inspector General Law Student Clerkship

The law-student clerkship focuses on the legal side of the Office of Legal, Legislative, and External Affairs, with some opportunity to also work with the legislative and external affairs.  Because OIG is a law-enforcement agency with broad oversight authority, our office offers an experience that is unique within Federal government.  From the investigative side, law students will have an opportunity to gain experience in criminal law from the investigative stage through prosecution.

Student Career Experience Program (SCEP)

The Student Educational Employment Program (SEEP) has two components, the Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) and the Student Career Experience Program (SCEP). It is available to all levels of students: high school, vocational and technical, associate degree, baccalaureate degree, graduate degree, and professional degree students. This program offers you valuable work experience directly related to your academic field of study. It provides formal periods of work and study while you are attending school. The program is designed to be a partnership between the student, their school, and the employing office. The SCEP may lead to permanent employment after you successfully complete your education and meet work requirements.
