During a course taught by Tulane professor James Carville, a guest speaker by the name of Doug Band would change the path of at least one student’s life. Band, who serves as chief adviser to former President Bill Clinton spoke of his experiences as a White House intern. Recent Tulane graduate Sarah Smith then knew she wanted that same experience.
Sarah: I work in the Office of the Vice President for the White House Advisor on Violence Against Women.
Sarah: Having the opportunity to engage on policy issues and meeting with individuals from various backgrounds working on violence against women.
Sarah: I’m currently looking for jobs in the law and public policy sphere. I plan, within the next few years, to also attend law school. Ultimately, I want to work in a public servant and service role.
Insider: Have you met any of our leaders?
Sarah: My advice to them would be, quite simply, to go for it. It is attainable and the experience is life changing. I am so grateful, humbled and thrilled to be here each and every day.
