I just submitted my phd thesis and will be a doctor of anthropology at the end of the semester. I have a couple academic articles under by belt and some conference presentations. But, I have no job experience in public policy. None. Zip. Zero. Nada.
My SO is a lifetime DCer and I want to move out there to be with them. What are the chances I can find a non-academic job in DC? I am willing to work anywhere, I just want to be in the city. I have no idea how competitive I am to get a job there. I am petrified that I have too much education to be an intern but too little experience to get a job. Obviously there are many places in the city doing work in public policy work, but do they hire new phds?
