Hopelink is a non-profit organization that serves homeless and low income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities. Their goal is to promote self-sufficiency among these people by providing emergency and social services in:
North and East King County, Washington between the I-90 corridor to the Seattle city limits and the Snohomish County line, and from the shores of Lake Washington to the Crest of the Cascades, an area of 800 square miles.
Hopelink offers help to people in the areas of Food, Housing, Child Care, Family Development, Adult Education, Transportation, Interpreter Services, Financial Assistance, Energy Assistance, and Classes. The end result is often a story like this. That’s just one family that was touched by Hopelink – the story in numbers from just last year are awe inspiring (50,000 lives touched for starters).
Helplink has a number of jobs that seem well suited to new college grads who have spent time actively engaged in their communities. These jobs aren’t entry-level by definition, as the descriptions say that 2 years of experience in social work is preferred, but we know that there are a lot of new grads out there who have what it takes. Moreover, Hopelink qualifies all of their experience requirements in job descriptions with this note: “An equivalent combination of education, experience, and training that provides the required knowledge, skills and abilities may be acceptable.” We love that. It means that they are more concerned with finding someone who can do the job than they are with checking off boxes on a job application.
Hopelink is looking for Case Managers in Redmond, WA; East King County, WA; and Issaquah, WA and an Emergency Services Specialist in Shoreline/Kirkland, WA. The job descriptions are extremely thorough, so you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out if you’ll make a good candidate or not. If you think you will and you have a passion for helping people become self sufficient, then send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
