Careers in Government Affairs

Are you interested in public policy issues? Are you a persuasive speaker and writer? Do you enjoy the political process? You may want to explore a career in Government Affairs. Whether titled "lobbyist," "legislative advocate" or "public policy specialist," this may be the career for you. Even if a JD is not required for eligibility, your SU Law training in analysis, legal writing and negotiation are extremely marketable in this field. Visit the CPD website discussion of "Alternative Careers" for tips about how to market your law training.

There currently are openings in the Government Affairs field at Microsoft, Community Health Plan and Dendreon Corporation. If you need to build a resume of experience in the area, please visit CPD to discuss how to make connections and learn about this exciting field.
