Batten will be hosting the inaugural policy career conference – “Building Public Servants” – on Friday, March 16 in Garrett Hall. The keynote speaker will be Clare Seelke, from the Congressional Research Service, who will be speaking about U.S.-Mexico relations. Following a session on the federal hiring process, there will be 5 concurrent roundtables on: work-life balance, life on the hill, opportunities in international development, education policy, and nonprofit networking. Throughout the day, there will be opportunities for networking and the chance to do mock interviews with real employers. For Batten MPP students, there is also the chance to have an interview for an actual internship position with Ms. Seelke at the CRS.
Batten alumni will also be back, including: Sean Callahan (2011), Hannah Green (2010), Meredyth Haas (2010), Morgan Ramos (2011), and Molly Schmalzbach via Skype (2011).
