ENGINEER THE GREATER GOOD
Since 1973, ASME has sponsored over 100 Federal Fellows, providing them with an opportunity to serve a one-year term in the Administration or U.S. Congress. Fellows serve as independent, non-biased advisors in engineering, science and technology, bringing a nonpartisan, pragmatic approach to analysis and input which has a profound impact on the decision making process. The result is effective and technologically appropriate public policy based on sound engineering principles.
Applicants for this Fellowship must have a strong energy background. ASME has long supported a balanced portfolio of energy supplies to meet the nation's energy needs, including advanced clean coal, petroleum, nuclear, natural gas, waste-to-energy, biomass, solar, wind and hydroelectric power. ASME also supports energy efficient building and transportation technologies, as well as transmission and distribution infrastructure sufficient to satisfy demand under reasonably foreseeable contingencies. For more information, review ASME's General Position Paper entitled "Securing America's Energy Future".
Policymakers are addressing major legislative and policy issues that are facing our nation and as federal legislation becomes increasingly technical, the need for engineering expertise is essential, which is why this program is so invaluable. Read more about the opportunities and challenges confronting our current and past fellows, including the articles below, by visiting our energy issues webpage:

This ASME Congressional Fellowship is sponsored by the ASME Foundation, the Petroleum Division and Government Relations.

More of the Millennial generation is college-educated, thus the basement standard for most jobs has risen accordingly. Pay in entry-level jobs is also an issue due to student loan and other forms of debt Millennials accrue trying to stay ahead of the masses.
Knowing how and when to apply for a job is just as important as find an opening. Failure to follow a basic blueprint when applying will leave you spinning your wheels.
Spotlight Relevant Experience
You have held a variety of part-time and odd jobs, but you do not need to include every single position in your resume.
Hirers are often flooded with applications, thus their resources are finite. Keep it concise by emphasizing only the positions with relevance to the job for which you are applying.
It does not need to be in the same field, so long as the skills applied or learned are applicable to the position you hope to obtain.
Lead with Leadership
Steven Rothberg, president and founder of CollegeRecruiter.com, says the one thing that stands out on an early-career resume above all else is a leadership role.
If you have experience leading in some capacity, make sure to lead your resume or cover letter with it. This can include heading a volunteer group or even something as simple as spearheading a major class project.
Leadership is not necessarily a learned job trait, so a demonstrated willingness to take charge is attractive to employers.
Don't Apply Just to Apply
Getting stuck in a career rut happens, either due to unhappiness with your current job or unemployment. Don't let your workplace rut bleed into your application process.
Blanketing prospective employers with resumes may seem like a good idea -- the more lures in the water the more potential for bites, after all -- but if you're applying for dozens of jobs, the odds you are tailoring your resume and cover letter to fit the specific opening aren't good.
Submitting a bland cover letter for an opening you may have only minimal interest in is one thing, but you want to take time to craft a standout resume and cover letter for the job you truly want.
Moreover, applying for a job that isn't really of interest to you isn't just wasting your time: It's also wasting the employers.
