"Why You Need to Know About Culture of the Organization, and How to Mine the Info"

When applying for a job—with any luck, the place where you’ll spend the majority of your waking hours for the foreseeable future—it’s just as important to understand the culture of the organization as it is to know who founded the organization and when. Read this for a few tips on how to get a sneak peek at an organization’s culture.

"How I Landed a Job from 3000 Miles Away"

Recently, I've noticed that many of you are hoping to leave the Virginia area for internships and jobs. It's true that a lot of the postings we showcase here are for the Virginia/DC area, so this article may be useful to you if you're hoping to end up elsewhere.

Cohen Sponsored Free Resource of the Week: EthicalJobs.net

Just as a reminder, public service careers mostly hire on a "just-in-time" basis, so most job openings now are for April start dates. Don't let this hinder your search! Use this time to network with companies (reach out to current employees and inquire about company culture, day-to-day tasks, etc), and keep looking through the job boards that William & Mary pays for you to access. This week I am highlighting EthicalJobs.net.


On Tribe Careers, go to the menu on the lefthand side. Click on "Jobs." There you'll find a list of different job boards, including Ethical Careers. Tribe Careers tells you the username and password for each of these resources. Ethical Careers lets you search by category, such as charities, international development, and green energy. It also lets you browse by location and type (job vs internship vs volunteer). I highly recommend using this service!
