Do your homework

Posted By Lily McCall, GAIN intern, Friday, December 17, 2010
Now is a great time to curl up on the couch in your pjs with a mug of hot chocolate and do some reading. You may have been consumed with searching for a new job, but take some time to learn the information that will make potential employers confident that you know what’s going on in Washington these days. Kick it old school and pick up the Washington Post or New York Times, or like most of us do, grab your laptop and check out sites like Politico, Huffington Post, Political Wire, or Open Congress. You could even turn on NPR while you creep through the snow on your road trip home.

The point is that the more you know, the better off you’ll be. This wealth of knowledge you’re going to have in 2011 will make for great smalltalk during informational interviews and networking events. You’ll be taken seriously if it’s clear that you are proactively plugged into the political world.
