The Office of Human Resources has posted the below vacancy announcements for the 2010 HUD Student Summer Employment Program. One announcement is
for the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and the other announcement is for throughout the nation. The announcement opened December 22, 2008 and
closes April 1, 2010. Even though FHEO has not made a determination as to the number of summer students we may be able to hire, I would suggest
that if you know of any students who may be interested in working at HUD that you forward him/her the announcement so that they can apply.
* Please note that even though the announcement closes April 1, 2010,
there are three cut-off periods with the first one ending February 1, 2010.
If HR receives sufficient applications during this period, they may close the announcement at that time.
