Philip (Phil) Wilkerson is an Employer Engagement Consultant at GMU Career Services. He serves as a liaison between employers and the GMU community to help the school match students with well-aligned internships and job opportunities.

Phil grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from James Madison University. Some educators went above and beyond to support him with career preparation (like crafting resumes, cover letters, and landing internships). 

When Phil started working at George Mason University (GMU), supporting Black students happened organically. In this episode of Motivational Mondays, Phil shares why landing impactful internships is integral to your career trajectory. 

You’ll learn the purpose of Phil’s podcast, Positive Philter, how Phil supports marginalized groups, and how landing impactful internships influences career development.
