Government & Public Service

The Government & Public Service Career Community encompasses those members of the Schreiner community who are seeking opportunities to better their communities, advocate for issues they care about, and serve the public good. This is a space where everyone can share ways of working in and with community-based organizations, government agencies, interest groups, social movements, and other organizations committed to improving the lives of others.

You are invited to share your experiences and resources that may support individual pathways, connect with those interested in pursuing a career in government or public service to offer insight and advice, and post and inform the broader community of internship, community engagement, or job opportunities.
