Amy Homkes-Hayes, Coordinator
Amy’s pick: Policy Analyst – Office of the State Superintendent of Education
Job ID: 23505
When I talk to students vested in working in government something I like to say is: Explore options beyond the Federal Government for government jobs. I strongly encourage investigating State and Local opportunities too. A great example of this principle is the Policy Analyst position listed in C3. This job really resonates with me because it centers on special education policy in DC schools. It sounds like a fascinating opportunity to analyze policy and work towards the Division of Special Education mission of ensuring all DC children with developmental delays and disabilities have access to high quality services and education.
Doug Fischer, Peer Advisor
Doug’s Pick: Manager of Operations – Community Elf (EDN Group)
Job ID: 23328
If I didn’t already have a job I would unquestionably apply for this position. In fact, I might regardless because this sounds like such an incredible and fun opportunity. Community Elf was founded in 2009 by two former McKinsey and Company alumni and is a social media management company. The position has a desirable level of autonomy and leadership as it entails coordinating with the development team, overseeing social media account managers, assigning tasks, establishing goals, and conducting performance reviews. They also sound like a down to Earth company to work for as they are looking for someone who has a pet peeve of inefficiency, are a jack-of-all-trades kind of person, love every day being completely different, and of course have an interest in social media and want to help transform the way companies drive their growth. Oh, and did I mention you’d be working in the exciting and innovative atmosphere of a startup company? Don’t miss this opportunity!
Geni Harclerode, Asst. Director of Experiential Learning and Employer Development
Geni’s pick: Oral History Intern – Institute of Southern Jewish Life
Job ID: 21743
There are more than a few times where I’ve sat in my driveway or the parking garage, unable to turn off the car because the story someone was telling on the radio was so fascinating I had to wait to hear the end! The Institute of Southern Jewish Life in Jackson, Mississippi is giving someone the chance to help capture the stories and narratives that have shaped the history of the Southern Jewish experience by working as an Oral History Intern. Imagine spending your summer traveling through communities in the American South interviewing and filming subjects as a means of sharing and preserving history. And if that doesn’t sound amazing enough, as a native Southerner, I can also assure you’re bound to encounter some of the best eats you’ve ever had!
