Section 1 offers helpful advice for those seeking the right skills and mindset to succeed in any workplace, whether in a political environment such as Washington, D.C., or in any other type of environment, anywhere in the nation!

Section 2, entitled “Mastering the Application Process,” offers time-tested career advice regarding how to present your accomplishments in a way that is attractive to internship, scholarship, and fellowship organizations. Young leaders will benefit from this section, which seeks “to achieve the perfect blend of ingredients” in your application. This section offers insights on how to write a résumé, cover letter, letter of recommendation, etc.

Sections 3 and 4 list over 800 internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities, while sections 5 and 6 offer tips on living and thriving in the nation’s capital. Section 7 provides helpful resources, such as example cover letters and résumés, and example emails that you can use as a blueprint to make the most professional impression possible on future employers.

In Washington, D.C., as in many places, it’s not what you know, but how you present what you know, and perhaps as importantly — who you know. So, in addition to résumé and cover letter tips, the “Mastering the Application Process” section offers information on how to use your career network to your greatest advantage and leverage your connections to get the most out of who you know.

Finally, this section of the book offers practical guidance on how to ace your internship, fellowship, and scholarship interviews.
