A recent participant reported “this course forced me to be proactive in my job search and gave me invaluable tools and templates to grow my network and conduct informational interviews. Thanks to the networking section, I connected with a former co-worker who told me about an opening at her agency … I was interviewed and hired! I also was able to negotiate a higher salary than was initially proposed.”
