Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt as a National Urban Fellow because of the diversity of classes, the breadth of knowledge each professor brings to the classroom, and the array of networking and career development opportunities. McCourt is a school that cares and a school that is committed to providing students the necessary tools and skills to become future impactful leaders in the public policy field.
What was the best part of your experience? The best part of my experience was having a one-on-one career development session with Briana Green (Director of Office of Career Development and Alumni Engagement). Briana is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to resume-building skills, preparing for interviews, and searching for your dream career in public policy. She is a natural at what she does, and I really appreciate the time she took to help me prepare for future jobs and opportunities.
