This reception gives Goldman School Master of Public Policy and Master of Public Affairs students an opportunity to network with alumni and prospective employers from the Sacramento Area in an informal setting.  If your organization currenlty hiring for summer internships and full-time positions, attending this event is a fantastic opportunity for you to begin identifying possible candidates.  Furthermore, even if your organization does not have hiring plans for this year, our students can still benefit by talking to public policy professionals about their career paths and advice for pursuing policy jobs in the field you work in.

The Students:

  • Master of Public Policy (MPP) students - GSPP's flagship 2-year program focused on rigorous quantitative, analytical and leadership skills. Students have an average of 4 years of professional work experience. (click here for more information)
