Alexander Dean, MPA '13

Hometown: Albany, NY

Current Position: Security Analyst
A.I. Solutions – Contractor for the Office of the Chief Information Office at NASA
Washington, DC

Received Job Offer: I landed my current job 11 months after graduation, after working in another position.

"Through Rockefeller career services, I was able to participate in a rewarding internship in Washington D.C. working at a high level office at The Department of Homeland Security. As a result of internship opportunities, as well as networking through Rockefeller professors, I received a greater understanding of the knowledge, skills, and experience expected in Washington, particularly in the national security arena. Following graduation, I had confidence beginning my career in Washington as I found that even skills learned from introductory classes at Rockefeller pertain directly to daily tasks required in my field of work."
