City of Seattle Career Day – November 1st

Seattle City Light has a good bit of money, staffing and motivation behind expanding their PAID internship program in all areas – tech, business, historic preservation (!!), HR, Government Affairs, etc. It is absolutely fabulous and exciting, and more will come on that in the very near future – I’ll share info with you as soon as I have it J

But in the meantime, there is another event that I wanted to share with you, the City of Seattle Career Day (flyer attached). It’s being hosted on November 1st and is an open house of sorts for students to learn about careers with the City of Seattle – all of its units and departments, not just City Light.

The RSVP/registration deadline is October 28th.

Educational opportunities should not be determined by your family’s income or the neighborhood in which you live. Teach For America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level of our education system toward the goal of closing the opportunity gap in America. These leaders start their paths as corps members who teach for two years in urban and rural high-need communities and help students make the academic progress that expands their opportunities. Deeply affected by their teaching experience, our alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields.

This year, 11,000 corps members are teaching in 48 regions across the country, while nearly 32,000 Teach For America alumni continue working from inside and outside the field of education for the changes necessary to make a great education a reality for all.

You have the power to change things. Apply to the 2014 Teach For America corps.
