HSSP/psych senior seeking roles at mission-driven health policy or advocacy organizations in DC

Hi! I am a senior majoring in Health: Science, Society, and Policy and Psychology with a minor in Business. Last summer I had the privilege to intern with Waltham’s Congresswoman Katherine Clark in her Washington D.C. office, and fell in love with the city.

Additionally, I’ve worked at a non-profit in Israel focused on improving the health of women and children. At Brandeis, I worked in Undergraduate Admissions as a Student Interviewer,  and I also served as a Student Coordinator for Alumni Weekend.

I am currently applying for entry-level positions in mission-driven health policy and advocacy organizations. With my passion for health equity, I see myself working for a similarly passionate non-profit/think tank/advocacy organization that mirrors my own interests. I am looking for advice on how to jump-start my career in a competitive city such as Washington D.C. and overall, any advice from alumni in this field!
