If you’re interested in working in DC next summer we highly recommend attending the Washington, DC trip planned by OCPD. This year’s trip will be at the end of the Winter Break and will allow students to network with a variety of organizations in the DC area–including numerous public interest organizations. There is an informational meeting at noon tomorrow in Room 122 that you can attend to learn more.
Here is a message from OCPD about the trip:
We are scheduling meetings with employers for January 9th and 10th, leaving time for interviews and one-on-one appointments on January 11th. We want folks to have time to schedule follow-ups, and if you have personal contacts in DC you would like to meet with, please use this time to schedule them.
Most events will consist of a presentation, a Q&A session and time for networking. Some organizations take resumes in advance, and some can lead to summer or permanent positions. Regardless, this trip provides an awesome opportunity to expand your networking base and make great contacts. Please remember that Business Attire is required for ALL meetings.
Please use Symplicity to find dates and times and to RSVP for events. Please continue to check back for new organizations as we will be updating it frequently over the next few weeks. You don?t need to (and physically cannot) attend every visit. You should sign up for the sessions that interest you the most. Several sessions are scheduled at the same time, so please do not sign-up for concurrent events.
The organizations that we have confirmed are:
- Department of Justice
- Department of Homeland Security
- Federal Judiciary
- Capitol Hill
- Environmental Protection Agency
- United State Postal Service
- International Trade Commission
- Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
- Public Defender Service for DC
- Corporation for Public Broadcasting
- Corporation for National & Community Services
Please remember that all costs for the trip are up to each individual participant.
If you have any questions before the informational meeting at 12 Noon on 11/29, please feel free to call, email or stop by OCPD.
