Internships & Jobs

The best way to find a job in DC (or anywhere, arguably) is to network. I know, I know, you’ve heard it a million times but TALK to your fellow Elliott friends, alumni, and classmates. They will help you more than any job website ever will. Take advantage of the Career Development office. The two full-time career coaches will go through everything from cover letters, resumes, and interviews to salary negotiation. And, as a GWU student, it’s free. Just email for an appointment. The newly-launched LinkedIn page as well as the OID group on Facebook are great ways to see jobs posted by OID members. On top of those stellar resources, here are a few good places to search as well:
