FCC SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR 2008 ENGINEER-IN-TRAINING PROGRAM

Competitive Program Aimed at New and Recent Engineering School Graduates

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today announced that it is

seeking applications from engineering school graduates with superior academic credentials and an interest

in communications engineering for its 2008 Engineer-in-Training (EIT) Program. Through the program,

the FCC recruits new and recent engineering school graduates to the FCC and the field of

communications.

Recent engineering school graduates and candidates for graduation in the spring of 2008 are

invited to apply for several openings in the program’s 2008 class. All EIT Program participants will be

located at the FCC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. or select FCC field offices. Candidates will

receive training at FCC headquarters or select FCC field offices. Applications must be received by April

10, 2008.

Interested applicants must respond to FCC Vacancy Announcement Number DEU-EIT-2008-

0001, available on the FCC’s website at http://www.fcc.gov/jobs/. All applications must include a coverletter, resume, writing sample,

official school transcript, and list of references; incomplete applications

will not be considered. A simple registration process through the Commission’s on-line recruitment tool,

FCCJobs, http://www.fcc.gov/jobs/, allows candidates to apply online via the Internet. Additional

information is available on the FCC’s EIT Program webpage at http://www.fcc.gov/EITprogram or bycontacting a Human Resources Office Representative at 202-418-0130 or

Recruit@fcc.gov.

Selection for participation in the Engineer-in-Training Program is expected to be highly

competitive. Selection criteria includes: academic achievement as demonstrated by class standing;

demonstrated technical competence (e.g., work experience, co-op, or class projects); writing skills; and

demonstrated interest in government service and/or the communications industry.

Engineers at the FCC work on cutting-edge issues in the communications and high-tech arenas,

including those affecting the deployment of next generation wireless systems, digital television and radio

transition, public safety and homeland security. They also promote the deployment of broadband

technologies, promote access to communications services for Americans with disabilities, and work to

protect the rights of consumers. The FCC’s work also involves interacting with other government

agencies, Congress, and the private sector to resolve complex policy issues.

One of the important items to note is that there is no “mandate” to convert to digital, so the stated reason for the sale is not accurate!
