One of our recent participants reported “this course forced me to be proactive in my job search and gave me invaluable tools and templates to grow my network and conduct informational interviews. Thanks to the networking section, I connected with a former co-worker who told me about an opening at her agency…I was interviewed and hired! I was also able to negotiate a higher salary than was initially proposed.”

We want you to experience a similar outcome! Learn more about our Alumni Job Search Boot Camp and connect with our Alumni Career Services team.
