Careers in Government
November 1, 2013
Albany, New York

Career opportunities abound in federal, state, and local government! Twenty-seven Mount Holyoke College students participated in an all-day visit to Albany, the capital of New York, to hear from women in appointed government positions and those in elected office who are making policy, responding to domestic challenges, and participating in innovative reform agendas.  Panelists shared their career paths, discussed the role of mentoring and networking, and shared opportunities and challenges for women in public service. Students networked with women at all levels of state and local government, toured the State Capitol building, and participated in a workshop, “Launching Your Career.”
