Kojo and Tom Sherwood chat with D.C. Council Member Elissa Silverman (I-At Large)
It’s no secret unemployment is up nationwide. But the job market in the Washington region is stronger than average — and there are many positions still opening up. We explore the opportunities and discuss strategies for making yourself stand out from the crowd — whether you’re fresh out of undergrad, making a mid-level career change, or seeking to return to the workforce.
