As Capitol Pathways marches on during this legislative session, the students gathered for another cohort meeting. We were joined by James Cooper, Jr., CEO of James Cooper Consulting LLC, to discuss strategies to refine and strengthen a resume and best practices on cover letter writing.

Later, we were joined by policy professionals to discuss a few career paths in the policy world. Many thanks to Aarica Coleman, Administrator of Housing and Redevelopment Authority in the City of Bloomington; Jamie Edwards, Special Advisor of Government Affairs for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe; Marie Ellis, Public Policy Director at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits; and Mitra Jalali, Saint Paul City Councilmember representing Ward 4!
