GPS students in D.C.6. Have a job? Need a job? 

The class of 2018 will be graduating soon and most students are focused on their job search. We hope we can solicit the collective power of our alumni network in this cause. We are fortunate to experience the generosity of our alumni as you send us countless job and internship openings throughout the year. Every year, many students and alumni secure positions specifically due to the efforts of this amazing network. If you are hiring, will be hiring or know of others hiring, please let David Robertson know.

If you are searching for a job yourself, please don’t forget that we post all our jobs, suitable for both current students and alumni, on our GPScareers system where you can create or update your profile.
