On Tuesday, April 1, I had the pleasure of traveling to Washington, D.C., to attend the launch of Colgate’s newest professional network, the Common Good Network. The event, which was held at the LongView Gallery, was a wonderful opportunity to learn about careers in the nonprofit/government sectors and speak to alumni within those fields.
As an intern at Colgate’s Center for Career Services, I had been hearing a lot about the launch. Knowing that I had an interest in the areas within the Common Good Network, my supervisor, Teresa Olsen, invited me to attend the event with members of the Career Services staff. I was thrilled to be given the chance to work at the event.
