Pulling it All Together: Successful Job Search that keeps you Offline and in Front of Employers

A special presentation for students and graduates of Metropolitan State University given by Amy Lindgren, President of Prototype Career Service and national employment columnist.

When: Thursday, April 24, 2014, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Where: LIB 302


You’ve written your resume, practiced tough interview questions, built your networking list…Are you ready to get a job? Gulp. Before you leap into the search – especially before you jump online and start applying for posted positions – you need to do one more thing: Create a job search strategy that keeps you in front of employers. Here’s a hint: The best strategies won’t involve online applications. Come to this fast-paced, interactive session to learn how to get your next job without getting stuck in fruitless process. This is a must-do session for anyone who fears the market will be tough to crack. The tougher the market, the more important it is to pull your search together and take it offline – because that’s where the jobs are.


Space is limited. RSVP at Career Link, by e-mail career.services@metrostate.edu or call 651-793-1528.

AmeriCorps Promise Fellows


Centennial Middle School, among hundreds of other schools and nonprofits, are seeking AmeriCorps Promise Fellows to fulfill up to a one year contract, working in youth development and often serving as Tier I Interventions serving within schools.


WHAT DO PROMISE FELLOWS DO?

Promise Fellows address both the civic engagement and achievement gaps experienced by many of Minnesota’s low-income students and youth of color. They also mobilize adults to connect with youth, often helping develop or augmenting volunteer programs in school-community partnership sites. In short, they develop innovative ways to deliver the fundamental resources young people need to be successful.

• Directly serve youth. Promise Fellows directly serve an average of 30 youth in grades 6-10 who are at risk or experiencing the academic achievement and civic engagement gaps.
• Plan and design programs. Fellows design, plan, and implement in-school and after-school activities to support and increase academic achievement in addition to social and emotional growth. These activities might be enrichment programs, mentoring programs, leadership activities, or homework help.
• Lead service-learning experiences. Promise Fellows also lead youth in service-learning, civic engagement, and leadership initiatives.
• Manage volunteers. Promise Fellows recruit and support family and community volunteers to assist in activities such as tutoring and mentoring, college and career exploration, and other activities that support overall success in young people’s school, work, and life.


PROMISE FELLOW BENEFITS

As a full-time AmeriCorps member, Promise Fellows serve at least 1,720 hours for one year and receive:
• Modest living allowance (appx. $1000/month);
• Basic health insurance;
• Qualified student loan deferment;
• $5,550 education award upon successful completion of service;
• Ongoing, extensive support and training.
Service Results
• 95% of Promise Fellows reported reaching three or more goals on their Personal Growth Plans.
• 97% report feeling prepared to fulfill the expectations of their positions.
• 100% of Promise Fellows who completed their term of service reported that they have developed the core civic engagement skills AmeriCorps and ServeMinnesota require by the end of their term of service.
