Hey everyone. We all started somewhere, and got that first opportunity that set our career path. I’m not talking necessarily about the first job you’ve had (though every job is a step on the ladder of your career, even that summer you spent bicycling a newspaper delivery route), but the one that helped you make the connections to get to where you are now. For me, it would probably be the social media internship I had right from my graduation 10 months ago up until the new year. It helped me secure my first job in the field I’m interested in (communications), as well as gave me valuable experience. The job that I got after that, marketing for a laboratory, gave me broader experience until I got to where I am now, which is a Graduate Fellow at GovLoop. So where did you begin? Do you think you would be where you are now if you started differently?
