Welcome to Lisa & Amber's
GovCon School for Young[er] People*
Why are we doing this?
To encourage undergraduate students to go into the field of Government Contracting by arming them with the foundational knowledge necessary to succeed in industry or Government.

What will you learn?
Learn the foundational concepts of what Government Contracting (GovCon) is and how it fits into the federal government acquisition and procurement life-cycle.
What is our goal?
We want to give you a leg-up in the competitive local market by teaching the unique foundational requirements required to confidently enter the GovCon ecosystem. This training will cover information we wished we had when we entered the GovCon marketplace, and will foster an ongoing informal mentorship with us.
What is The Pulse of GovCon?
The Pulse of Government Contracting is a boutique federal market intelligence firm that specializes in GovCon storytelling. Amber and Lisa grew up in Northern Virginia. We spent our young lives driving past office buildings donning the names of various defense contractors and not knowing what they did. We became Proposal Managers right out of school and were thrown into the deep end re: "baptism by fire". We don't want the next generation to go through the same thing. Join us as we tell you, in plain speak, what you need to know to get a job in an industry starved for talent.
