CIOC Introduces Technology Fellows Program†
- CIO Council
This week, the Chief Information Officers Council (CIOC) announced a new Technology Fellows program to help the government compete more effectively with the private sector for IT talent. The CIOC worked closely with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to design the program—marking another step toward fulfilling the IT Reform Plan, which calls for building a pipeline of qualified IT personnel in the Federal Government.
The Technology Fellows program falls under the policies, guidelines, and application/hiring processes of the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program, which offers government opportunities to top graduate school students. The Technology Fellows Program will present talented IT professionals with a prestigious option when coming out of their respective graduate programs.
In particular, the Technology Fellows program will target students with undergraduate degrees in computer science, computational mathematics, IT, or information science; and a graduate degree and/ or relevant work experience in an IT-related field.
