Careers in Government & Public Service: An AmeriCorps Alums NOLA Professional Development Event & Holiday Party
Sponsored by the Clinton School of Public Service, and the Bush School of Government and Public Service, the New Orleans Chapter of AmeriCorps Alums will host a professional development event focused on careers in government and public service. The opportunity is open to all AmeriCorps Alums, current AmeriCorps members, and those exploring a career in the public sector.
The event will feature Kathryn Meyer from the Bush School and Alex Thomas from the Clinton School who will be on hand discuss current trends in government and public service professions, as well as how their institutions are shaping the next generation of government and public servant leaders. Both schools offer significant incentives for AmeriCorps alumni enrolled in their programs.
Food and drinks are included in this free event and we know it will be a significant professional development opportunity and then a fun party for the AmeriCorps community in New Orleans! And while our event ends at 9pm, we're invited to stay at Gasa Gasa for Sasha Masakowski's set after.
So, come out and learn how public service can help you pay down student loans and pay for grad school. Additionally, if you are researching options on how to use your Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, you will hear from two institutions that offer financial incentives that allow enrolled AmeriCorps Alums to leverage their Ed Awards. Finally, it will be an opportunity to network with fellow alumni and current AmeriCorps members. We hope to see you there!
