Public Policy Career Fair

The Goldman School of Public Policy hosts an annual career fair in February/March where employers are invited to showcase their organizations to Goldman School MPP, MPA and PhD students. This event takes place at the Goldman School, and employers are each provided a table to present organization materials and any summer internship and/or fulltime opportunities. This Career Fair is only open to graduate level public policy students.

Employer Information & Recruiting Sessions

Employers are invited to the Goldman School of Public Policy to conduct information sessions for students to learn about their organizations. This is an excellent opportunity for you to market your organization to Goldman students, and recruit for either summer internships or fulltime positions. Information Sessions are typically scheduled for 60 or 90 min, either over the lunch hour or in the late afternoon. Because our events calendar fills up quickly, employers are encouraged to contact the school to schedule a date for your session as early as possible.

On-Campus Interviews

If you are interested in interviewing multiple current Goldman students for your open positions (either internship or full-time), we can arrange for an interview room at the Goldman School. We are also happy to help collect applications from Goldman students, as well as schedule on-campus interview times with students. Because our events calendar fills up quickly, employers are encouraged to contact the school to schedule a date for on-campus interviews as early as possible.
