November 1, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 


Hey Hoyas! It is good to be back! For those of you who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Beth. And I am your friendly neighborhood government/nonprofit/education advisor. 

I am just coming back from being out on maternity leave, having welcomed baby girl number three into our family. So, don’t be surprised if you see me lining up for more coffee at The Corp. 

A little bit about me. I grew up in the Metro-Detroit area and attended the University of Michigan, where I had a dual major in cultural anthropology and social theory. While there I did my study abroad in Tibet, among other fun activities. After undergrad, I pursued a Masters of Philosophy in [International] Development Studies at the University of Cambridge, and fully intended to enter the foreign service and maybe someday be Secretary of State. And while I haven’t ruled that last goal out completely, my life has taken me on a very different, but incredibly awesome path.

Throughout my career as a consultant at Gartner & Deloitte, and researcher at a think tank, the Partnership for Public Service, and now at Georgetown, my goal has been simple: to help great organizations get the fantastic talent they need to fulfill their mission. Focusing primarily on public service organizations, I likely know more than is healthy about federal hiring law, navigating the DC scene, and how to find a career with a purpose greater than a paycheck (although one does have bills to pay).  

To that end, I look forward to helping you all navigate and demystify the world that is government, non-profit and education industries, and I hope that together we can explore where, exactly, you can make your mark on this world. I do have appointments available on Handshake. In the meantime,  be sure to follow me on LinkedIn and Twitter

I also use Remind (new window) to get out last minute reminders and notices about upcoming deadlines. Be sure to sign up:

The Challenge of Educating New York’s 104,000 Homeless Children

James Baron – The New York Times

“Issues that affect other cities, like challenges with housing affordability and shortages of apartments, are magnified here. And when you put the numbers in context, students living in shelters have fared much worse than students in public housing.”
