“I had the pleasure of attending a Virtual Career Fair where Dr. Joi Brown presented a stimulating presentation on “How to Prepare For A Federal Career.” Her comments and suggestions were especially helpful in rebuilding my resume. I felt like I was at a standstill in the progression of my job-seeking process, however, she provided much-needed guidance and tips that I will use to revamp my resume and apply in my job search. I’m confident that I’ll be starting a federal government career in the near future. A special thanks Dr. Joi for a truly memorable presentation and such a refreshing personality!”
