Event Summary:

Getting to that next phase of your career is HARD. In order to move up, you will either need to interview for a brand-new job, or advocate with your manager for a promotion. So, what exactly are the steps to get from where you are now to where you want to be? 

Join GovLoop, NextGen and your government peers after work on Tuesday, April 30 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. for an interactive, in-person GovUp at the GovLoop office in downtown Washington, D.C. We'll explain how everyone can learn tips and tricks to get to the next level in your career. 

We'll touch on every aspect you need to address to get ready for a promotion or even a new job like honing your personal brand, updating your resume, prepping for an interview and much more! 

Specifically, you'll learn:

  • How to highlight your achievements and nail your personal brand.
  • The best interview questions to ask your future boss or employer.
  • How to practice your interview skills during an interactive exercise.
  • Network and connect with other public servants looking to advance their government careers.     _______________________________________
