Professional Development & Employment Opportunities

Want to make an impact?

We will be hosting Victor Bartash from Venture for America in the Honors Lounge at 3 PM on Monday between 3 and 3:30 PM. Come by to learn how VFA places college grads who are interested in joining a startup right out of college and learn how to build a business. In our four years, VFA has expanded from 40 Fellows to over 330, and work in 15 cities.

More about VFA:

Venture for America is a fellowship program for recent grads who want to learn how to build a business while making an impact. VFA Fellows get training and join a startup in an emerging US city, where they live and work for two years at one of our hundreds of partner companies. They learn hands-on what it takes to build a company, while getting the mentorship, network, and ongoing support to prepare them to become successful entrepreneurs. Our goal is to spark job growth in cities that need it by sending our top talent to help grow the businesses that will make it happen.

Anyone is welcome--you don't have to be a graduating senior! Come by for a bit if only to meet Victor and see what opportunities might await you!

OpenArts, an office within Campus Philly, is hosting a college night at the Barnes Foundation. If you are unfamiliar, the Barnes is an INCREDIBLE collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works all collected by one man, Dr. Barnes. The collection used to be housed in the Philly suburbs, but because of funding and attendance, was moved to downtown a few years ago. The new building is awesome and recreates the original galleries to something like 1/36th of an inch.

In order to get free tickets, you need to create an OpenArts account. When prompted to enter a code, type incampusphilly1516. I spoke to the lady from OpenArts on the phone this morning and they have some incredible free events, from orchestra tickets to museum admission, so its worth getting on their listserv.

Did you know that Temple has a Career Center? Did you know they have a new database of Jobs & Internships? Did you know that if you're looking for a specific kind of job or internship you can set up a search that will email you if someone lists a job or internship that fits your specifications? Career Center Student Ambassador Nishi Sarkar, along with Career Center Employees Shannon Kelly Conklin and Holly Logan will be there to show you how to get the most out of the OwlNetwork, as well as some of the other great programs (hint: ask about the online mock interview you can take at 3 in the morning while you're in your jammies!) the Career Center offers to help you get an Internship, a part time or summer job while you're in school, as well as a job when you graduate and beyond! As always, pizza will be served, first come/first served.
