How to Land Your Dream Job

Here are eight (8) steps to help you land your dream job!

• Use your NETWORK! Contact Friends, Associates, Professional Colleagues, College Dean, Alumni Associations, Professional Organizations and Linked In Contacts/Recruiters to let them know you are actively seeking a job and ask if they have any leads.

• Identify companies where you desire to work, find connections on Linked In (managers, recruiters, HR, employees) and request an Informational Interview to learn about open positions and/or if opportunities are available to you within the company.

• Attend Career Fairs and ask recruiters to review your resume and ask for tips to improve your possibilities of getting hired at their organization. The recruiters are the gateway to getting you the job!

• Contact your college/university career resource office for job leads and resume/cover letter assistance.

• Visit your local Microsoft Store and ask for one on one Linked In training to learn how Linked In can help you in your career search.

• Join Professional Organizations to network, gain leadership opportunities and training.

Intelligence Careers – Seek Internships, Scholarships, and Jobs!

For years I worked within the Intelligence Community and wondered why so few people looked like me. Part of the reason was awareness. African-American Youth are not often informed about the opportunities to work within the Intelligence Community and that needs to change. I’ve asked recruiters to proactively target schools in underserved communities and HBCUs to recruit and hire students of color. There’s many scholarships, internships, fellowships and careers in the Intelligence Community to include HR, Accounting/Budget, Law, Medical, and Cyber/IT. Let’s change the narrative and diversify the Intelligence Community.

For those seeking jobs within the government consider searching: http://www.IntelligenceCareers.gov

Here’s a list of Scholarships and Internships from the Intelligence Community: https://www.intelligencecareers.gov/icstudents.html

DC Department IG Employment Services – Community Conversations

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Community Conversations for Wards 4, 5, and 6 hosted by the DC Department of Employment Services (DOES). Dr. Unique Morris-Hughes, the Interim Director of the DOES, provided the community residents an overview of the programs offered by DOES. Programs highlighted included: American Job Centers; Back to Work 50+; DC Infrastructure Academy; Learn, Earn, Advance, Prosper (LEAP); Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (MBSYEP); In-School-Program; Out-of-School-Program; and The Pathways for Young Adults Program (PYAP). One immediate observation is the major need to provide services for transitioning adults 30+ seeking career opportunities after unemployment for prolonged periods.
