Policy

Policy

A policy is a deliberate system of principles to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes. Possible career paths include civil service administrator, city manager, and diplomat. Every industry has policy related jobs. Think tanks, policy analysis, lobbying, research and advocacy organizations have opportunities for almost any policy interest or skill set. Those interested in policy may also work with private employers, acting as higher education advisors, public relations specialists, and healthcare coordinators.
