Nearing degree completion?

If you aspire to leadership and management positions, you should look into the Presidential Management Fellows Program. PMF is a leadership development program that promotes US government careers to advanced degree candidates. As a fellow, you would work in a federal government agency for about two years with the possibility of experiencing other federal agencies. It is a competitive application process. Many fellows are offered permanent federal jobs by the end of the fellowship, but you can also move into business, industy or the nonprofit sector. Learn more about the application process by visiting the PMF site or contact the the Mizzou Fellowships site to learn about information sessions. Several Mizzou alums have launched promising careers through the PMF program!
