Recent engineering school graduates with superior academic credentials and an interest in communications engineering are invited to apply for the FCC’s 2008 Engineer-in-Training (EIT) program.
“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,” the FCC notes. “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 News Release announcing the 2008 Engineer-in-Training program states, “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 (work experience, co-op, or class projects); writing skills; and demonstrated interest in government service and/or the communications industry.”
Applications must be received by April 10, 2008. The news release has information on specific requirements and how to apply.
