One of the reason's I haven't been updating as much is that I've been putting a lot of energy into my efforts to find work.
Next Thursday, I plan on seeing how much all of this work has paid off when I make a trek to Philadelphia, PA for the Idealist.org Non-Profit Job Fair.
With over 90 organizations in attendance, I need to pick my targets wisely. After a look I narrowed the field down to twelve:
- Clean Water Action
- Empowerment Group
- Intercommunity Action
- PIRG (Public Interest Research Group)
- Playing For Peace (group that uses Basketball to build understanding)
- RHD (Resources for Human Development)
- SEIU 1199P(Health Care Workers)
- Sierra Club
- Working America
Noteably absent are the Peace Corps and Americorps. I've realized that my financial situation prohibits me from seeking work with these two organizations.
I'm also working on a portfolio that will incorporate this page; American Alliance/Road To Gilead and the "Media Portal" I've developed.
I feel good about my chances, and that has to be a good thing.
