Mark your calendar for Friday, April 26, 2013. This is a career fair for graduating students and alumni seeking permanent positions in the fields of Education and Nonprofits. Regarding Education, in addition to teachers, this can mean accountants, human resources and computer techs. The primary interviewing season for teachers is spring semester when school districts actively recruit. Educators interested in careers in education will have opportunities to interview with potential employers during this event in the Student Union Memorial Center
For students interested in a career in the nonprofit sector, this is a broad field with opportunities across the board. Oftentimes, working in nonprofits can offer opportunities for students and recent college graduates to stretch career-wise in ways that are not readily available in the more structured environments common to large corporations. The nonprofit sector includes organizations that work to fill gaps left by government and business sectors by directly or indirectly working with communities.
The nonprofit sector is comprised of organizations working towards a better world, as defined by each of these organizations' missions. Within the nonprofit sector, organizations have missions that directly contrast with one another — for example organizations on opposing sides of social or environmental issues. But the beauty of working within the nonprofit sector is that anyone can find a cause they believe in and work (actually get paid!) to represent the goals of that particular organization.
Bring your resume to the Third Floor Ballroom of the UA Student Union Memorial Center on Friday, April 26th, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and see what opportunities might be waiting for you!
