Figuring Out and Charting Your Path in a Career in Government, Policy, Advocacy, Nonprofit, and International Affairs GPP Podcast: Career Coaching for Budding Advocates, Politicos, Policy Wonks & Social Entrepreneurs

    • Government

How do you figure out your path when careers in government, policy, advocacy, and international affairs are remote and opaque, sometimes intentionally so? Season 2 of the GPP Podcast launches with this episode recorded at a workshop Amy gave on how to explore these career paths. While perhaps not as slick as our other podcasts, it's jam-packed with insights and is a great first step for anyone from a first year to an alum. Careers only make sense in retrospect, but take your first step toward a dynamic career by listening to and taking one action step from this episode.

From the outset, our mission at Government and Public Policy Work Group has been to increase knowledge about and access to internships and jobs in  government, policy, advocacy, and international affairs. While most GPP employers do not recruit on college campuses like many other industries, our alumni network is a key partner in paving the way for WashU students to land internships and jobs in GPP fields. The Government and Public Policy Work Group at the Washington University in St. Louis Career Center leverages and connects students to WashU networks with aim of increasing transparency, accessibility, and diversity, one policy wonk and change agent at a time.
