Raising your Hand to Serve
The Day One Project is seeking scientific and technological (S&T) experts interested in bringing their knowledge and skills into the federal government on a tour of public service. The Day One Talent Hub works with federal government agency partners by connecting them with qualified experts from our talent directory and onboard individuals as Day One Impact Fellows.
A tour of service is an opportunity to use your expertise and skills to drive the largest scale of impact. Through your time in government, you’ll not only be working towards a better bottom line, you’ll also gain experiences, capabilities, and networks that can change and strengthen your own professional journey.
The Day One Talent Hub is currently recruiting for two Impact Fellowship Cohorts:
Energy Innovation at the Department of Energy
Education Data Science at the Department of Education
Impact Fellows in these two cohorts will join the Day One Project for a three-month-long fellowship before a year-long assignment at their respective federal agencies. The fellowship will prepare Impact Fellows for success in the federal government, offering tools to become better policymakers and providing opportunities to expand professional networks. Applications for both Impact Fellowship Cohorts are now open and will close on September 28th at 11:59pm ET.
If you’re interested in bringing your expertise to a tour of service, raise your hand by filling out the form below and a member of our team will review your interest. For more information, read our FAQ or reach out to email@example.com.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect after I fill out the interest form?
The Day One Project team will review and record your information for future opportunities that arise through the Day One Talent Hub. Filling out the interest form does not guarantee an aligned future opportunity.
Why should I consider a tour of public service?
Do fellows work for the Administration?
Not specifically. Fellows will be placed in federal agencies and as such, will serve the American people, not a specific Administration. However, fellows may work on projects or be in discussions for issues that support a Presidential priority. Additionally, fellows are independent, non-partisan and non-affiliated - they work to bring their subject matter expertise to agencies, not positions from outside entities. They are expected to adhere to the same ethical and conflict of interest standards that career civil servants do and to focus on the agency and project missions.
Who is the type of candidate we’re looking for?
What opportunities are there to serve in the federal government?
The Day One Talent Hub works with federal agency partners to surface and scope the myriad opportunities there are to bring scientific and technical talent into government to deliver on high-impact priorities. While our team cannot make guarantees about volume or type of roles, we will work to align the qualifications and interests a candidate indicates with opportunities that are surfaced by our partners. If you are successfully hired for an opportunity, we will support your onboarding process and provide additional support throughout the fellowship program.
