This workshop provides information and shares resources on planning a job search as well as offers recommendations on how to utilize the foreign affairs experience to form a comprehensive employment plan. Participants will spend the day preparing and practicing an elevator speech, answering mock interview questions, and identifying specific steps to gain employment with the federal government.
"I really like how focused and knowledgeable all of the staff is at the Foreign Service Institute and the Career Development Resource Center (CDRC). They really know their stuff."
"Liked the whole course but really appreciate the fact that it opened my mind for the 'connections' I should make on a job search."
"At the beginning I was a little skeptical on the content of this presentation, since I believed I had a very strong resume, but she taught a lot of elements and tricks that I was missing. WONDERFUL!"
