The Workshop is designed to assist students in getting the most out of their DC experience, specifically focused on helping students succeed in their Heinz Policy Fellowship and DC classes, reflect on these experiences to identify areas of learning and professional growth, and be poised to effectively launch their career in Washington. The class will include:
Students will learn a variety of tools for professional growth and will be given the opportunity to put them into practice during the current year. Sessions will focus on developing your personal strengths, how congress works, managing up, teamwork, salary negotiation, project management and other topics as identified. Communication will be a key emphasis this year through the Writers Workshop, which will focus on sharpening students’ professional writing skills, as well as opportunities to present and provide briefs. Students should be able to understand concepts and practice them throughout the year through their fellowships and DC courses.
