Geni Harclerode, Asst. Director of Experiential Learning and Employer Development
Geni’s pick: Blood Services Intern – American Red Cross, Washtenaw County Chapter
Job ID: 13928
Every year I am so impressed with the work that students and other members of our Michigan community put forth to make the Blood Battle a success. For one thing, I always look forward to beating Ohio State (or “Ohio”) at anything, but maybe more importantly, because giving blood is such an important and life-saving act. The local chapter of the Red Cross is offering a really cool chance for a student to help organize and promote more blood drives like this all over the county. This is a great chance for someone to see what it’s like to work for a non-profit and the position has some important public relations, marketing, and event coordinating aspects to it too. Check it out!
Rushi Vyas, Career Advisor
Rushi’s pick: Part-Time Marketing Coordinator – Door-to-Door Organics
Job ID: 23059
With graduation approaching, some students are starting to say, “I just want something, ANYTHING, to do for next year.” The Part-Time Marketing Coordinator position with start-up company Door-to-Door Organics, could provide that “something” while still giving you time to explore. I found this position by simply typing “explore” into the keyword search. At 20 hours a week, but with quite a bit of responsibility, this Part-Time opportunity in the Livonia area could provide valuable experience in multiple areas. For those interested in marketing/sales or the “business” side, there is quite a bit of very hands-on experience in this opportunity. For those interested in public health and/or environmental sustainability the company’s mission may provide an interesting gap year opportunity. Or for those more entrepreneurial individuals, getting experience working for a relatively new start up that is still nationwide having a footprint in five different locations, could give some interesting background for your own future proposals. It’s ok if you are not fully decided on what the next steps are, and maybe this opportunity allows you to explore that while still having some income.

Lizzy’s pick: Assistant Media Planner – Initiative
Job ID: 22682
This posting interested me because of its focus on Media and that it’s in an excellent location to be involved with media – New York City. As an assistant media planner, you will oversee media budgets, make planning decisions and maintain relationships with clients and vendors to execute advertising and communication efforts.
The position would elicit development in areas of communication, finance and project management for any students interested in communication, PR, marketing, advertising, or media. The advanced and creative design of Initiative’s website showcases the company’s focus on creativity. The deadline to apply is April 11, 2012.
