This text is dedicated to all of the political science and international affairs, public policy and related majors who have worked so hard on their academic work and now want to apply it….and to all the Visiting Practitioners who have come to UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs to share their knowledge and experience with students.  This book will hopefully help those interested in political and public affairs careers learn more about the potential avenues available to you and help you actually get your foot in the door. Special thanks to Dean Matt Auer, whose support was greatly appreciated, James Castle, who helped support this effort through the Office of Online Learning, Roya Naghepour, Applied Politics student and undergraduate editorial assistant for this project, and Kasey Clark, graduate editorial assistant.
