Host Employer Information & Recruitment Sessions (in-person or virtual)

These programs can be virtual (usually 30-60 minutes and offered around lunchtime or late afternoon), on-campus or on-site (at DC areas offices). In addition to offering programs specifically for the Trachtenberg School students and alumni, we partner with all GW graduate programs for employers interested in reaching the broader university network.

Schedule Interviews (on-campus or virtual)

Partner as a Capstone Client

As part of the final degree requirement, all Masters students complete a Capstone Project to provide pro bono consulting (PDF) (spring and fall semesters) to clients for evidence-based recommendations of the analysis and findings. Please contact Kate Rosa, Director of Administration and Operations, at [email protected].

Promote Existing Information Sessions

 If you are already running on-site, on-campus or virtual information sessions and would like us to spread the word about these programs to the Trachtenberg community, email [email protected] with additional details and registration links.
