Wesleyan students have long been recognized for their commitment to making a difference for our nation and our world. For many of us, careers in some kind of public service are considerately weighed alongside those in the private sector because they often entail a greater sense of meaning and involvement with the real issues of our time.
This Thursday, a panel of 8 Wesleyan students will discuss their undergraduate internships experiences in and around government. Those in attendance will be encouraged to ask questions and get a sense of what it is like to work in various aspects of the civil service, legislature, state government, foreign embassy, and Washington, D.C itself.
Various internship, fellowship, and career opportunity applications in the public sector will be disseminated.The application process for Wesleyan’s John W. Macy Internship in Government and Public Policy will also discussed.
