  • Advertise open positions and recruit prospective job candidates from students with outstanding expertise across politics, economics, the sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences;
  • Connect with other professionals in state and local government as well as non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations; and
  • Establish valuable contacts with colleagues and university administrators that can potentially yield mutually-beneficial relationships.
