Event Details:

Join the University Career Center & The President’s Promise on a Career Shuttle to Facebook DC!

This trip is open to sophomores, juniors and graduate students of any major, provided you have a strong academic background and interest in government affairs, public policy, law or strategic communications. To be eligible for a summer externship with Facebook DC, you must be returning to school in Fall 2014 (May 2014 graduates and alumni are not eligible unless they plan to pursue further education starting next fall). ADDITIONAL NOTE: This career shuttle and site focuses on government affairs, NOT social media or computer science-related opportunities.

Facebook DC is currently recruiting for its summer externship program (a paid, full-time opportunity during Summer 2014). Facebook DC helps to inform users, the media, partners, employees and other stakeholders about Facebook’s products and business. Working with policymakers at the international federal, and state levels, the team handles legislative and regulatory matters, participates in domestic and international policy discussions and leads the company’s interactions with consumer and other non-governmental organizations.

Space is limited—please RSVP today! Once the bus is full, you will be added to our waiting list and notified if a spot opens up. Due to the limited space and the expected high demand for this trip, we will be enforcing our "no show" policy. Contact Kate Juhl immediately at kjuhl@umd.edu if you register and are unable to attend.

Please plan to meet in the lobby of the University Career Center & The President’s Promise (3100 Hornbake Library, South Wing) at 8:30 am. We will depart promptly by bus at 8:45 am and return to campus by 1 pm. You may want to bring a snack. During our visit, we will take a tour of Facebook DC and hear more about their externship program. There may also be the chance to meet some high-level members of the office as their schedules allow.
