Nonprofit and government organizations to recruit SU students Feb. 25
Does a career with the FBI or the U.S. Secret Service interest you? How about Teach For America, City Year or The Peace Corps? Nationally, government and nonprofit hiring shows promise, so we are bringing these coveted employment opportunities to you.
On Friday, Feb. 25, SU Career Services will host Community Connections, a government and nonprofit career fair. The fair will feature representatives from more than 25 organizations interested in meeting candidates for internships and full-time positions. Community Connections will take place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Panasci Lounge of the Schine Student Center.
Among the participating organizations: Enable, Home HeadQuarters, Inc., Muscular Dystrophy Association, National Kidney Foundation of Central New York, New York State Unified Court System and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Many SU graduates choose to pursue careers in support of the public good. Recently, the Peace Corps announced that SU was ranked 11th in the list of medium-sized colleges and universities producing Peace Corps volunteers.
“By participating in Community Connections, students can build meaningful connections and learn how to make public service a viable career option,” says Jennifer Walters, associate director of Career Services.
Students of all years and academic programs are encouraged to attend Community Connections. To prepare, students can visit Career Services to work on their resumes or develop strategies for approaching employers at Community Connections.
