Position description:

The Graduate Fellowship program is a yearlong professional development opportunity for outstanding new graduates with master’s degrees who want to contribute to LMI’s mission. LMI provides the fellows with a broad-based, structured program that emphasizes development of analytic and consulting skills. Participants will participate in project management and program development within the broad spectrum of public policy management and be exposed to a diverse mix of economics, finance, business and information technology, mathematics, statistics, operations research, and procurement.  Tasks focus on enhancing presentation, project management, and program development skills in support of critical federal government projects. The program combines varied project work, internal and external professional training, and mentoring.

Graduate Fellows will start work in July, 2019.

Fellows are hired into LMI immediately following the completion of their degree. Fellows are full-time LMI employees who participate in the program for 1 year, beginning the summer following the award of their graduate degrees. Upon successful completion of the program, the fellows will continue as regular LMI consultants.

Why is this role important?

Former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara once stated: “The complexity of problems facing government managers is such that we must bring to bear on them the most experienced, capable, and creative business management talent we can find.”

To tackle those complex problems, Secretary of Defense McNamara recommended establishing an organization of specialists. Three weeks later, in October 1961, LMI was born. Since then, LMI has evolved, growing and building on its rich history of public service by bringing the best management and technical minds to address intricate issues across government. And, as administrations, priorities, and policies have changed over the last 55 years, LMI’s mission has remained constant.

What does it offer?

Project Work and Consulting – LMI’s Graduate Fellowship program emphasizes diverse job experience, including work on various consulting projects and interaction with more than one federal government client. Meeting and interacting with government staff members enhances the fellows’ ability to understand government organization and functions, the constraints under which government managers and policymakers perform, and specific government needs for analytic, technical, and consulting support, as well as expanding program development skills. We make every effort to find opportunities for fellows to serve as project leaders.

Professional Development – In addition to the standard employee benefits package, fellows receive professional development training to augment their work experience. LMI staff and outside experts supply this training—a mix of project management, professional skills, leadership, and technical instruction—the focus of which depends on the needs of LMI and the interests of each fellow.

Mentoring – Each fellow is teamed with a senior LMI professional who acts as a mentor. The mentors help the fellows prepare professional development and training plans and identify potential projects. The mentors are also available to tutor on consulting skills and to offer insight and advice on working with the federal government and public sector.

Minimum requirements:

  • 2019 Master’s degree in Public Policy, Public Administration, Business, Engineering, Data Science, Health Policy, or related discipline.

  • Quantitative coursework highly preferred.

  • This program is designed for candidates with approximately 1-5 year's relevant work experience, and Spring 2019 graduate degrees in Public Policy, Public Administration, Business, Engineering, Data Science, Health Policy, and/or related fields.

  • Proficiency in various data processing and data analysis tools, computer spreadsheets, and database programs.

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills; ability to compose and write a variety of internal and external general business documents, reports, and presentations.

  • Strong interpersonal and listening skills; ability to develop and maintain professional relationships within LMI and with its clients.

  • Strong ability to prioritize projects and meet deadlines set by project leader.

  • Ability to obtain security clearance is required.

  • Due to the nature of the work that LMI performs as a government consulting firm and the necessity to obtain a security clearance, a requirement of this position is that the Graduate Fellow be a U.S. Citizen.

Why is this role important?

The U.S. Department of State is the official international relations arm of the President of the United States.

Their work includes analyzing political and economic events; improving trade opportunities for U.S. businesses; conducting negotiations; implementing international agreements and treaties; issuing visas; assisting U.S. citizens abroad; educating foreign audiences about American culture and values; and managing an embassy’s operations. Foreign Service Officers are also engaged in foreign policy issues such as conflict resolution, human rights and democracy, environmental and health issues, nuclear nonproliferation, world trade, and public diplomacy.

A Foreign Service career is much more than just a job; it is a uniquely demanding and rewarding way of life. Foreign Service Officers work in Washington D.C. and in more than 250 diplomatic posts worldwide. As representatives of the United States government and people, Foreign Service Officers have a direct impact on people’s lives, witness history in the making, and help create and implement U.S. policy.
