Looking for jobs in the federal corrections field? Michelle Meers, a Career Counselor from Sam Houston State University Career Services, and Roberta Ardoin, a VetSuccess on Campus Counselor at the Veterans Resource Center at SHSU, can help you "Managing the Maze of Federal Job Searches" at the next Real Talk w/CJ on Nov. 27. The public is invited to attend.

To help prepare for those opportunities, Meers and Ardoin will review the USA Jobs site as well as expectations for applications and the federal resume format.
