SIPA is a professional school and we take career development very seriously. Our job is to produce graduates who can hit the ground running and make an immediate difference in the policy world. Meg Heenehan is the Executive Director of the Office of Career Services (OCS) and she recently sat down to speak with us about the services her office provides.
There are many activities and opportunities directed by OCS that promote professional development including workshops, recruitment fairs, job and internship postings, and even a professional development class. OCS not only helps students to market themselves, they also market our degree programs to potential employers.
Graduates also have life long access to the services OCS provides. So whether it’s 10, 15, or 20 years down the road, you can contact OCS to brush up your résumé and cover letter or network with alumni.
