Participant Feedback:

"Personal stories were utilized to emphasize learning points while still allowing the students opportunities to share. This class provided a wonderful opportunity for students to network and begin to build connections that will benefit them during their time in Washington, DC."

"As my main objective is to find a job in DC, I learned that there are a lot of valuable and practical resources to do it, such as on-line training courses, language courses, networking, Career Development Resource Center (CDRC), etc."
