How long have you been in the DC area? I just leaving my cocon I guess trying to meet other professionals in the area. I see you have experience overseas with private industry, i guess... Many years of experience with NGOs and focusing in Latin American programs are not enough for finding a job without networking humm... I am glad I am making contacts with other hispanic profesionals in the DC area. Thanks for your message.
