We invite you to learn more about the GCC's services and how we can help you in your career development.
Advising and Coaching Services
As a graduate student, you may schedule a one-on-one advising/coaching session with a career development professional to discuss your job search needs. To make an appointment with a career development professional, click here.
The GCC offers a series of career development skills workshops to help you with your job search. These workshops include writing effective resumes and cover letters, networking, interviewing, salary negotiation and preparing for career fairs. See a complete list of workshops.
The Center maintains a password-protected database of current jobs and internships with hundreds of posted positions in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. New opportunities are added every day, so check back regularly!
WalshWorks also allows you to post your profile and your current resume. Employers may search resumes by key words, such as a language skill or security clearance. If your resume is not there, employers cannot find you, so post your resume and update it as you add new skills and experiences over the course of your Georgetown studies. If an employer is doing a resume drop, you can load other documents on WalshWorks as well, including reference letters, your transcripts and writing samples.
The GCC publishes a regular e-newsletter, the Career Bulletin, which provides information on upcoming career events, select jobs and internships and other timely job search information. The Career Bulletin is sent via email and also uploaded to the WalshWorks document library. If you are a current student, you will receive the Career Bulletin automatically. Alumni may subscribe to the email version. When subscribing, checkmark the box next to "School of Foreign Service Graduate Career Development Center" and please include your full name, preferred email address, degree program and year of graduation.
