NGFP Fellows at the annual NGFP Career Skills Workshop, where they met with PNNL and NNSA leaders to gain practical guidance and best practices for applying to positions after their fellowships.

The NNSA Graduate Fellowship Program (NGFP) participated a Career Skills Workshop earlier this month in Washington. The annual event provides Fellows practical guidance and best practices for applying to positions after their fellowships. Fellows learned about what to expect when for applying for federal positions, resources for working with national laboratories across the U.S. Department of Energy complex, and general information about federal positions and hiring processes. Key presenters included:

  • NNSA Deputy Associate Administrator for the Office of Management and Budget Frank Lowery, who shared information about federal hiring and the USAJobs job portal. 
  • Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) Director of Talent Acquisition Rob Dromgoole, who provided guidance for writing résumés and preparing for interviews.
  • PNNL NGFP Operations Lead Ryan Boscow, who shared advice on how best to pursue positions in the federal government and the national laboratories.
  • PNNL Technical Recruiter Colin Sanders, who shared tips for using LinkedIn and other social networking tools to assist in career searches.
