Student Educational Employment Program

The federal government has always looked to educational institutions to find pople who have the skills needed to meet its future employment needs.  That's why we created the Student Educational Employment Program (SEEP) to attract talented students to federal public service.  It's an opportunity to earn money and continue your education, to train with people who manage the day-to-day business of the national government, and to combine your academic study with on-the-job experience.  The SEEP has two components: student temporary employment and student career experience.  They are available to to all levels of students: high school, vocational and technical, associate degree, baccalaureate degree, graduate degree, and professional degree students.

STUDENT TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT COMPONENT (STEP):
Job opportunities under this component offer you temporary employment. Employment can range from summer jobs to positions that can last for as long as you are a student. These employment opportunities need not necessarily be related to your academic field of study.

STUDENT CAREER EXPERIENCE COMPONENT (SCEP):
This component offers you valuable work experience directly related to your academic field of study. It provides formal periods of work and study while you are attending school. The Student Career Experience Program gives you a "jump start" in your chosen career field by providing valuable, paid work experience while you are still in school. After completion of the academic and work requirements of the program, students may be eligible for permanent employment.
