This February current Ford MPP/MPA students traveled to Washington D.C to explore internship and career opportunities across a variety of sectors from think tanks to federal agencies. The annual trip is an opportunity for the wider Ford community to come together as Ford alums connect with students through career panels, networking receptions, and lunch and learns.
Current students are busy this month securing internships and leaning on advice shared by the alumni network in D.C. First-year MPP, Taylor Rovin, noted that it was reassuring to hear the alumni network discuss their experience of being in the same shoes as a student and encourage students not to self-select out of internship opportunities. Alumni working in D.C reiterated throughout weekend never to hesitate reaching out to the Ford community for support or guidance when navigating career opportunities or moving to a new city!
