On November 16, I attend the GWSB Student/Alumni Luncheon. Although I am not graduating until next year, I thought that this this was an excellent opportunity to meet with members of the GWSB Alumni Community.
During the luncheon, I talked to Lila Mei Lee, the alumni table leader. She works at the Director of the Division of Organizational Reengineering at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. I asked her specifically about about her career path and how her education at GWSB guided her career decisions. The free luncheon provided me with an opportunity to ask questions that I may not necessarily ask in an interview.
I was the only student from the MSPM. Most of the other students were MBA students and they were not aware of the MSPM program. I talked about the program and I think that I even recruited two students to join the MSPM. The MSPM students are part of the GWSB Student Community. In the future, I will recommend other MSPM students to take advantage of any networking opportunities that GWSB offers. I know that the connections I made at this luncheon could lead to future opportunities!
