1) want to make my resume for grad schools look nicer, since by then I'll (hopefully... if I can find a job) have two years of work experience (I've spent most of this year working for a think tank).
2) hopefully be able to get a salary that pays well enough to give me some money to save to help pay for grad school and stuff.
So, what am I looking for? This is what I need some advice about... For those of you who have jobs or are currently looking for work; how did you go about finding it? I know how to search for think tanks in DC and apply for jobs, but aside from that what else should I be looking for?
I guess I should mention the following:
- my degree is in Political Science
- I plan on doing the following for grad school: law school (emphasis on international law), and/or a MA/PhD in International Relations (or some related field).
I'm looking for a job SOMEWHERE in those fields, or that will give me some sort of valuable/informative experience that I can put on a grad school app. I really can't think of ANYTHING outside of a think tank though... but there has to be more than that, right?
Should I consider working for a law firm? Is that a viable option? I heard that's really bitch work and not productive at all though. Anyways, any help or ideas would be awesome, because my dad is on my ass about needing to start looking for a job but outside of think tanks I have no clue where to start.
