Overview

"What can I do with a degree in political science?"

If you've recently graduated with a degree in political science, you may be unsure of how to put that degree to use in the real world.

In this updated edition, you'll find:

  • Thorough explanations of job-search basics such as crafting resumes, writing cover letters, and interviewing dos and don'ts
  • Revealing self-assessments to help you determine your best professional fit
  • Investigative tools to help you uncover those jobs that will make the most of your major
  • Networking tips to get your face out in the field and your foot in the door before the résumé is even sent
