Being the DC metro area is full of opportunities for rising IO psychologists. One major resource is the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington.
PTC offers monthly talks and panels hosted in the area (and are also webcast), various networking happy hours where consulting and testing companies set up booths and tell students about their internship and entry hire programs. Additionally, PTC hosts the annual Consulting Challenge, where students are presented with a real challenge that local organizations are currently facing in a realistic RFP (request for proposal) format. Students present as if they were external consultants bidding on a consulting project. And the winners earn a cash prize.
