Continue [or start!] attending UW Making The Difference events, explore web links featured on this blog, and when you find federal internships and jobs that interest you, GO FOR IT.  Let advisers in your department know how they can support you..  Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to point you in the right direction.  Cheers!  Patrick Chidsey, The Career Center:  chidsey [at]
