Insights: How To Get A Job In DC - Preparing The Perfect Resume
Show Notes

In the second installment of the new HPS Insight series, "How To Get A Job In DC," which demystifies the process of getting a first job in D.C., HPS Partner Matt McDonald speaks with Chandlee Bryan, Assistant Director for the Center for Professional Development at Dartmouth College, and Bob Coates, Assistant Director for Co-Curricular Programs for Dartmouth's Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, about translating your story into a compelling application. The three discuss pitfalls into which students often fall - conceptualizing their resume as a summary, submitting cover letters that don't demonstrate familiarity with the company, and more - and the steps students should take to ensure their applications stand out.
