When you think of non-profit organizations and their missions, you typically think about groups that are feeding the hungry, saving the planet, or promoting education. There are myriad non-profit organizations that aren’t dealing with such serious issues, but they still deserve attention during your job search. One example is the United States Golf Association. As golf’s national governing body, the USGA is constantly focused on anything that is “for the good of the game,” whether it be running tournaments, writing the rules of Golf, or supporting other golf related programs.
The USGA’s main entry-level job offering for new college graduates is a two-year Fellowship Program that is aimed at getting young people started in a career in golf. The USGA website has all kinds of information on the fellowships, including job descriptions and profiles of current and past fellows. Unfortunately the application deadline for the USGA Fellowship was in January. If you love golf, it’s something that you should watch for next year. Until then, you can hang at the driving range and the practice greens. If you’re already a scratch golfer and looking for a job right away after you graduate (it’s actually ok to apply if you can’t break 100), there are current openings for a Rules of Golf Associate and Volunteer & Player Services Liaison, 2009 U.S. Open Championship. There are a few other jobs listed on the USGA’s Careers page, so be sure to take a look at all of the current openings.
We’ll be back to normal length posts on Monday. We had a great Spring Break, and we hope you did too – even if you spent it job hunting.
