BRISTOL, Tenn. – Donna Felty, King University’s regional director of Career Development
for the Tri-Cities has received Federal Advisor Certification. The Federal Advisory
Certification program is offered by the Partnership for Public Service and is designed
to provide advisors with a comprehensive view of how to advise students on federal
opportunities, build agency relationships, and promote federal service on campus.
The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that is
working to rejuvenate the public government by inspiring a new generation to serve
and transform the government working through innovative means.
This was an impressive opportunity for Felty to develop professionally as she can
now assist King University students as well as alumni in providing the latest information
and news about job search strategies in the federal sector. This certification will
enable Felty in helping King students who are interested in joining the civil services
after graduation. Felty will also be able to assist students and alumni with opportunities
available in the federal services, provide information on the hiring trends in the
federal agencies, and mission-critical positions. This certification also provides
an additional avenue of assistance for veterans attending King who may be seeking
to complete federal job applications.
“The certification’s strategy for revitalizing public service is pursued by inspiring
and hiring mission-critical talent, developing strong leaders, engaging employees,
modernizing management systems and building networks of support,” said Felty. “The
hiring of dedicated and enthusiastic candidates assists the government in strengthening
its civil service offerings.”
Federal Advisor Certification comprises of three steps including virtual federal advisor
training series, federal advisor strategy package, and the go government webinar series.
It is a one-year process of applying in the public sector with two semesters, each
of which has three webinars. Various tests and personal interviews are also conducted.
This certification provides a comprehensive understanding of the application process.
Those certified will be able to assist students in their application for federal services.
During Felty’s training, she observed how relationships are built with federal agencies
in the federal government. “I learned about pathways of programs and internships,
what mission critical field is important to the federal government for qualified people,
and of practical examples and experiences of experts.”
