FIU in DC regularly hosts Career Success Fly-Ins focused on training and developing career skills for high-promising, diverse FIU students stemming from a variety of majors and academic levels. Training topics included personal branding, networking, relationship building, and exploring the professional culture in Washington. Each fly-in is tailored to a college or program's interests.
Washington Innovators Exploration: Intended to give our students an inside look at the current state of working in Washington, D.C. and how innovative approaches to business, policy and practice are moving the needle to create a change in culture.
Mock Interviews Around Washington, D.C.: Mock interviews at different sites are arranged with alumni and friends of FIU. Sites have included:
Washington Careers Meetup: We also invite employers from around DC in varying fields to speak with the students about career opportunities with their organization, internship and fellowship opportunities and how to apply. Small groups of students meet with each employer for 30 minutes at a time and fostered deep and meaningful conversation.
These fly-ins are a collaboration between FIU in DC and partners in Student and Affairs Campus Life. For more information on participating in a future fly-in, please contact Ethan Starkey (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your resume and express interest.
