Job o’ the Day: Two-Year Empire State Fellowship Program in the Big Apple!

Empire State Fellowship is a full-time leadership training program created under the umbrella of the New New York Leaders Initiative, which is designed to prepare the next generation of professionals for careers as New York State policy-makers. Created under the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Fellows will fully engage in the work of New York State government, and depending on a performance review, successful Fellows may have the opportunity to serve as state government leaders after completing the program.

From the PSJD job posting:

The incoming class of Empire State Fellows will serve from September 2013 to September 2015, and receive an annual salary commensurate with experience, not to exceed $72,765, plus a generous benefits package. At the end of the fellowship, a performance review process will identify fellows that will be given the opportunity to continue to serve as leaders in New York State government after completing the program.

Governor Cuomo will appoint each Empire Fellow to work directly with a Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, or other high-level policy maker. Work assignments will offer Fellows unparalleled experience collaborating with senior officials and participating in the policy-making process. While taking part in the work of government, Empire Fellows will participate in educational and professional development programs that will help them to serve as effective and ethical government leaders.

The deadline to apply is April 12, 2013. For more information on qualifications and application instructions, view the full job listing at (log-in required).

    I could not agree with this article more. In the 40’s thurogh the 50’s and part of the 60’s people dressed well. I remember my mother putting on a special hat and gloves to go to the grocery store. It was a time of elegance, wehn people took pride in how they looked, and how they presented themselves to the world. How I miss those days. Now, sloppy, torn, wrinkled seems to the be the order of the day. What a sad reflection on the realities present in our Western culture (or, lack of culture).- David
