We have set up a counseling-based program dedicated to helping students interested in working in Washington D.C. for the summer and/or in post-graduate positions in the government and non-profit sectors.
Students interested in working in DC meet with the DC Connect advisor in order to formulate a detailed and personalized job search strategy. The DC program is set up to ensure that students are aware of relevant deadlines, and other special requirements including background checks, possible interview questions, and necessary language for targeted resumes and cover letters for various positions.
The DC Connect advisor also serves as a liaison between the students who have secured DC internships and permanent positions.
