In February 2011, Belmont senior Carlin Lawroski and the Office of Career Services implemented the “Call to Serve” initiative on Belmont’s campus. Lawroski and Career Services will plan and offer programs to educate Belmont students about federal service. The Office of Career Services will promote internships and jobs with the federal government.
To accomplish these goals, the Partnership for Public Service–a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve–works with colleges and universities across the country to ensure that students are knowledgeable about opportunities in federal service. In addition, The Partnership for Public Service partners with federal agencies to develop innovative recruiting methods and effective hiring techniques to improve government’s capacity to build the workforce it needs.
Currently, the Call to Serve network consists of more than 720 schools and more than 75 federal agencies.
