As you learned in your EIW Information Sessions in April, OCS hosts Interview Workshops in DC and New York over the summer to help you prepare for the upcoming recruiting season. In these workshops, you will learn tips for tackling tough questions, how to make the most of your past experience and ways to stand out (positively) from the crowd. Each Workshop will be followed by a short mixer with food, drinks and Georgetown alums. The mixers will provide an opportunity to learn more about the firms and practice your networking skills!
