Highlighted Opportunities

  • The Effective Altruism and Judaism Intro Fellowship is an 8-week virtual program you can do alongside school or work that explores the core ideas of effective altruism and their relationship to Jewish tradition, texts, culture, and history. Learn more and apply by October 11th!
  • Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF) | Apply by October 12
    • The PMF program is a prestigious, two-year fellowship that places graduate degree holders in US executive branch agencies.
    • PMFs receive good full-time salaries with civil servant-equivalent benefits and are generally promoted each year during the program.
    • PMFs can non-competitively convert to permanent civil service positions after their two years. This is a big deal, as it presents a fast track to highly competitive government jobs and an easy way for agencies to hire a pre-vetted candidate.
    • PMFs are respected and noticed. People in the policy community expect PMFs to be inquisitive, rising leaders and are happy to answer their emails, take calls, or get coffee.
    • You can read more about eligibility requirements here.
    • Read this EA Forum post for additional context about the PMF program.
