If you’re struggling with your job search, there’s a chance that you’re feeling disillusioned about all of the time, effort, and money that you’ve invested in your college education. Now, a college education (even if it’s from a top school) doesn’t guarantee a job, but it’s still amazingly valuable. It’s no secret that a college degree usually leads to “higher employment rates, higher job status, and earn higher wages.” For many of you, college was a given, but there are plenty of students who don’t come from a “college-bound culture.” They live in underserved communities or come from families where college is not a foregone conclusion. Bethesda, MD based Center for Student Opportunity is a non-profit organization that empowers “underserved, first-generation college students to and through college by providing critical information, guidance, scholarships, and ongoing support.”
The Center for Student Opportunity was founded in 2005, and since then they’ve stood out from other similar programs by helping students “identify and connect with the many colleges and universities that have targeted these students for admission.” They can do this because they have strong relationships with a huge number of college partners (including many of the nation’s best schools). If you firmly believe that college is “a life-changing experience and a catalyst toward successful life outcomes,” then you might want to consider a career with the Center for Student Opportunity. Right now their Idealist page shows that they’re looking for a Development Associate. It looks like it could be a good fit for a new or recent grad, so take a look.
