    Government Week: What it is and Why You Should Care

    October 4th, 2010, 12:50 pm

    If you have considered a career in public service, Government Week is for you. If you are trying to figure out what options are available with your major, Government Week is for you. If you want to know how to stand-out with government employers, Government Week is for you.

    What is Government Week?

    We designed this week to provide you with an opportunity to learn about career possibilities in the federal government from alumni, employers and other experts in the field. Whether you are a first year student or a graduate, the information you gain will be valuable to you as you consider your career options.

    What’s in it for you?

    Remember, at the end of the day, or in your case when you graduate, you want to be in a position to make a choice. Industry weeks are all about helping you to identify your options. The events are a great, non-committal way to learn about the possibilities within different industries.
    What can you expect from the week?

    On Monday, representatives from Homeland Security, the Department of Commerce and the FDIC will offer suggestions on how to make your skills stand out while touching on the variety of careers available with the federal government.

    Also on Monday, federal career expert and Washington Post contributor Derrick T. Dortch will give you key tips and tricks for searching for government opportunities. Read the rest of this entry »

    Welcome to our blog!

    Welcome to the blog of Georgetown University’s Career Education Center!

    Why are we blogging? We wanted a different forum to offer our thoughts, opinions and advice to you. The blog gives us a way to address career-related issues in a direct, timely way. We also think that a blog lends itself well to more dialogue and discussion than we can sometimes provide in other forums. The blog also allows us to bring guest bloggers into our discussions, people such as alumni, employers, faculty, staff and students who can share the benefit of their experiences with you. We intend for the blog to serve as a compliment to the information available on our Web site and the in-person services we offer. We hope you visit often. Most of all, we hope you find it useful.
