OCS’s career panels, networking events and professional development workshops have given me exposure to ideas, people and internship opportunities I needed to build my skill-set and become a more effective policy analyst.
What I value most about my time at Wagner has been the opportunity to balance both reflection and action in managing my career. As a planner by nature and profession, I tend to gravitate in theory towards straightforward approaches: set a goal and then figure out how to accomplish it. However, I realize that in practice, I don’t even know the meaning of linear. The Composing Your Career approach gave me the opportunity to be thoughtful in my decision-making and yet still be open to new, expansive opportunities that came my way.
