September 6, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Welcome back Hoyas!

In the following weeks, there will be a lot of programming coming at you from the Career Center to help you learn, discover, and slowly identify pieces to build your dream.  We do not always have a complete blueprint, nor everything you may need. But be assured we are here to listen, and to help you as much as we can.

In the meantime, do you have a question or a resume you need reviewed? Stop by the Cawley Center Monday-Friday from 1-3pm for our drop in hours. While I am on leave, individual appointments will be available with the wonderful Erin Feree. (You can read more about her background below.)



Erin Creasy Ferree is excited to return to the Cawley Career Education Center team to provide Government, Nonprofit & Education Industry Advising appointments this autumn while Beth Schill is on maternity leave. After working in the US government and at the Partnership for Public Service, Erin was on staff at the Cawley Career Education Center from 2012 to 2016 and then coached in the SFS Graduate Career Center until 2018. Most recently, she supported the expansion of the Capitol Applied Learning Labs (CALL) program at Georgetown’s downtown campus and also coaches clients interested in starting, or advancing, their careers in a variety of international and public service fields. Outside the office, she is involved in her faith community, hikes and camps whenever possible and attends a lot of her kids’ soccer games. You can schedule a 1:1 Industry Advising Appointment with Erin through Handshake and meet with her via Zoom.

Capitol Hill: Students Reflect on Congressional Summer Internships

 David Katz – The Daily Pennsylvanian

“When you’re working on the Hill, you feel like you’re in the middle of everything. Everything goes on around you. In the building next to you, they’re holding a hearing about gun control. In the other building next to you, Nancy Pelosi is sitting in her office. Just being in that sort of environment is really exciting.”

Hear more about their experiences here.
