    Do you have your MPA? If so, what was your first job after graduating and how did you find it? I’m looking for any tips you may have about finding an entry level job and descriptions of the kinds of jobs that an MPA goes on to do.

    I have an MPAff from UT-Austin; I think the big takeaway career offices should be offering is if you have imagination, you can apply the degree and skills in a wide variety of places:

    –freelance analyst for energy consulting practice

    –communications consultant for startup nonprofit

    –postgrad fellow at one government agency

    –researcher/analyst for nonprofit (first salaried, non-fellow job post-graduation)

    –currently a communications consultant for a second agency and board member (volunteer) for local chapter of nonprofit
