Last Friday, the Batten School hosted the first “Building Public Service” Conference featuring keynote speaker Clare Seelke from the Congressional Research Service.
I thought that the Public Service Conference was a great way to get an inside scoop of what it’s like to work in governmental agencies. The discussion we had with Ms. Seelke over lunch was a less formal, but informative way to talk about things we, as soon-to-enter employees should think about if you want to work for any type of agencies. Opportunities to hear from experts and practitioners like these are very valuable to students to network and learn about policy areas they are interested in. – Katy Lai (Acc. ’13)
