Get help landing your dream policy or advocacy role

  • Eric Kwak

If you’re ready to land your dream job in policy or advocacy, but aren’t quite sure how to do it, join LEE for the two-part online series How to Land a Role in Policy or Advocacy.  

Each 90-minute training is packed with tips, tools, and personalized support to set you up for success in your job search, and features an opportunity to get feedback on your resume, LinkedIn profile, and networking strategy.

LEE member Eric Kwak (TFA Chicago ՚16) participated in the How to Land a Role in Policy or Advocacy virtual training series last year, and says it benefited him in a few ways.

“I was able to explore my career options in the policy field, adjust my resume to a policy career, and gain a network of high-ranking education professionals through the panels.”

LEE’s How to Land a Role in Policy or Advocacy virtual training series will help you:

  • Identify skills that are critical to policy and advocacy leadership, and tailor your resume to highlight the relevant policy and advocacy skills you possess
  • Develop a concrete plan to grow and leverage your network to increase your chances of landing the role you want
  • Articulate and refine your professional brand, and design your LinkedIn profile to showcase it

All past participants, including Eric, say they gained new knowledge or insight and walked away with tools to immediately implement into their job search.

“I encourage everyone who is looking to transition into a policy role to participate in the virtual training series because it helped me develop concrete steps I can take,” says Eric.

LEE members who fully participate in the two-part series, including completing the corresponding deliverables, will gain a competitive edge in the selection processes for the Policy & Advocacy Summer Fellowship and the Policy Advisor Fellowship.

These trainings are open to LEE members only.
