Are you looking for opportunities to gain professional experience and contribute to the mission of a non-profit organization? Then there’s good news for you! The annual Non-Profit and Volunteer Expo is coming up later this month, on January 28th. This year’s event is co-sponsored by Career Services and OSU’s Community Service Center.
So…why attend the Non-Profit and Volunteer Expo? A few reasons…
- You need professional experience! You may not realize it, but volunteer work is a wonderful way to gain valuable working experience. There will be MANY organizations present for you to begin talking to!
- You want to make a difference. Non-profits offer fabulous opportunities to satisfy that social justice advocate inside you, or your need to make the world a better place!
- Networking. Non-profits are also employers, folks…here’s your opportunity to begin the networking process for that internship or job you’ve been looking for.
- Interested in a program like the Peace Corps, Americorps, or Teach for America? We’ll have a panel of past participants to answer all your burning questions.
Stay tuned on our Non-Profit and Volunteer Expo Webpage for more details about the event, such as the organizations who will be attending, as well as the workshops and events being held throughout the day.
