Tips and Tricks
- If you're interested in working for a non-profit, find organizations that you're passionate about and see if you can offer a lunch meeting with someone who works there.
- Be patient. DC may be a great market in a weak employment economy but there are a lot of competitive and coveted jobs so it may take a few tries before you get noticed.
- No one makes it to the top in the beginning. You may start off as an administrative assistant but as long as you're in, take advantage of learning from the experience and building up to the opportunity you seek.
