2018 Interview Opportunities (In Progress)

CDO is actively pursuing opportunities for students to apply in January for jobs and internships, and if selected by employers, to interview on site in DC on February 15 and 16.  When confirmed, these opportunities will be posted in F&ESNext with details and application instructions.  Here are a few that are looking extremely likely, subject to confirmation:
  • Cameron Speth Fellowship with WRI
  • Cameron Speth Fellowship with NRDC
  • Full Time Positions with ICF
  • Internships and Jobs with C2ES
We will keep updating this list as we work behind-the-scenes.

Note that these opportunities are being sourced in tandem with employer site visits to help our student maximize their visit to DC!

I can’t recommend FESinDC highly enough to next year’s class. The social and environmental challenges we face collectively could not be in better hands than with F&ES Alumni. Thank you for making it happen!

How are employers selected for FESinDC?

ALL F&ES students will be invited to provide top choices of employers to visit in Washington, DC through a Google spreadsheet created by CDO.

Selections are compiled and ranked to identify the top 25 employers. 

Student Interest Groups are encouraged to work with CDO to organize a visit to an employer of special interest to group members that may not be among the top 25.

Who pays for the trek?

What is a job trek?


A job trek is a series of employer site visits.  It is way for students to learn firsthand about an organization, specific fields and a region. It is an opportunity to step inside a headquarters, visit workplaces, and network with alumni and employers. Trek visits may consist of presentations with Q&A session, tours, or panel presentations.
