Subject: Career Entry Program Vacancy Announcement (Open Tuesday July 13, 2010 - Saturday July 17, 2010)
Importance: High

The Civil Service Career Development Division (HR/CSHRM/CD) will be accepting applications to the Career Entry Program for five days, beginning Tuesday, July 13, 2010 (12:00am Eastern Standard time) through Saturday, July 17, 2010 (11:59pm EST deadline). Please note that Passport Specialist positions are also included in the Career Entry Program.

The Department of State established the Career Entry Program (CEP) in 2001 to attract and retain exceptional individuals to the Department in targeted, professional occupations. This program, also known as the Federal Career Intern Program, was created under Executive Order 13162 to assist agencies in recruiting individuals who have a variety of experience, academic disciplines, and/or competencies to meet current and future agency needs. It is a two year training and development program.

Applications submitted before 12:00am July 13, 2010 or after 11:59pm on July 17, 2010 will NOT be accepted.

Applicants must meet the following requirements to be minimally qualified:
1. Have at least a bachelor's degree with either a 3.0 overall cumulative GPA OR 3.5 GPA in the last 2 years of their major OR at least one full year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level OR 1 full year graduate level education.
2. Must be a United States citizen.
3. Must have a Social Security Number.
4. Must be able to obtain a Top Secret clearance.

To apply, submit your resume, official OR unofficial transcript, and a separate letter of interest (no less than 100 words, no more than one page) indicating which job series and location (below) you would like to be considered for. If you wish to apply for more than one job series or more than one location, you must include a letter of interest for each job series and location desired. A generic letter that does not specifically include a job series reference will render your application incomplete.

These documents should be sent electronically to CareerEntryProgram@state.gov between Tuesday, July 13, 2010 (12:00am EST) and Saturday, July 17, 2010 (11:59pm EST deadline). Late submissions will NOT be accepted.
