"My experience at USTR gave me the opportunity to work closely with dynamic public and media affairs experts, while enhancing my knowledge of foreign economic affairs. I was able to develop my organizational skills, learn how to perform multiple tasks under strict deadlines, and work as a team player. Most importantly, I acquired the communication skills and professional background that helped me obtain a job on Capitol Hill after I graduated from college."
