Ryan Perry

'17 (IR/PSC)

 

Ryan interned at the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) while participating in the Maxwell-in-Washington Undergraduate Program in Fall 2015. 

 


 

Ryan studies International Relations (Europe, International Security and Diplomacy) and Political Science (Political Economy). Ryan interned at the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development, while participating in the Maxwell-in-Washington Undergraduate Program in Fall 2015.

 

Ryan found the class content and his classmates' insights to be helpful with his internship projects. He worked with media in gaining more coverage for OECD, handled research requests, and produced specialized reports--all of which improved his research skills. He is interested in diplomacy work, international organizations, and the overall notion of countries working together. He also attended different policy events that were unrelated to his work, allowing him to expand his foreign policy horizons.

 

Ryan's advice for future MaxWash students is "be friendly and don't be afraid to be yourself--especially to your superior(s), they're people too and they're more than willing to  engage in conversation with you. Talk to them because it'll making working with them more enjoyable and the work you do more engaging."
