Hi, everyone!  Peter, thanks for starting this group.  Question from career services at HHH -- what would you tell our new grads who want to work for government?  The news about government employment these days is pretty gloomy, but there must be some opportunities.  Advice welcome!

Glad to be a part of this group. I am a Service Representative with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Though I am extreme proponent of my agency and its mission of fighting old-age poverty and economic insecurities, I am very much trying to land a public affairs position, preferably with SSA. My background is in advertising in the private sector, complemented with a BS in Public Relations and an MBA. In other words, I have the education and the drive; just not the experience. More importantly, I am not so arrogant as to NOT ask for advice. So Marco, Jodi and Peter, I would like to know how you landed your various PA positions. Thank you.

According to the Dean at this Institute, "... The Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs inspires, educates, and supports innovative leaders to advance the common good in a diverse world ..." Pretty good academic curriculum for those who would pursue a career as a public servant. Are you a graduate of this institute, Peter?
