An update from Cody, a junior with a political science major and CCPA minor:

So far we’ve had two alumni events and also met with other alumni and professionals who are working in Washington, D.C. They are very successful, and many graduated no more than two years ago. Here is some of the advice they’ve shared with us:

– It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

– Show up to everything.

– Network, network, network.

– Always be nice.

– Build your resume (always have an internship).
