The 3L Weekly Docket this week features the FCC honors program application and an announcement that the best government job search tool in existence has gone live for the 2017/2018 application season.
Job Opportunity: Federal Communications Commission Honors Program, Application due September 11
The Federal Communications Commission’s Attorney Honors Program is a two-year employment and training program designed to introduce selected candidates to the field of communications law and policy. Honors Attorneys quickly gain valuable experience and benefit from a wide variety of learning experiences. Attorneys at the FCC draft decisions in adjudicatory and rulemaking matters, work with internal and external constituencies to resolve complex policy issues before the agency, participate in international negotiations, represent the FCC in dealings with other government agencies, Congress and the private sector, and defend FCC decisions in the federal courts. Additionally, Honors Attorneys benefit from a specialized training and career-development curriculum designed specifically for the program.
All positions for the Attorney Honors Program are located at the FCC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Specific placements within the agency will be based on the participant’s interests and experience and the needs of the FCC. Honors Attorneys may have the opportunity to rotate to a new placement within the agency after their first year. At the end of the two-year program, Honors Program attorneys will be eligible for consideration for continued employment at the FCC.
