Last week, I had the chance to meet Charlotte Bartter ’11, who represented Green Corps at our Spring Career Fair. Afterward, she wrote to me with a message she hoped to convey to other organizations like hers about why coming to William & Mary is always worth the trip:
Dear Fellow Employers from the world of Non-Profits:
I recently attended the William & Mary Career Fair and I missed seeing you! As a William & Mary alumna I know that there are many students who are looking for opportunities to change or better our world; and, as a member of your professional field, I know that we are looking for just these students.
I am currently the Development Associate and a recruiter for Green Corps.
Green Corps works to recruit and train organizers, provide field support for today’s critical environmental campaigns, and graduate activists who possess the skills, temperament and commitment needed to fight and win tomorrow’s environmental battles. We run a one-year, full-time, paid Field School for Environmental Organizing which includes intensive classroom training, hands-on field experience running urgent environmental campaigns, and career placement in positions with leading environmental groups.
We are looking for bright, dedicated, hard working, and passionate college graduates who want to work to protect our environment and change the world we live in. How do we find them? One way is by dedicating our time and resources (for five years in a row) to find those students at William & Mary. In that time we have recruited 3 people for the program who have gone on to do incredible things – and we’re not about to miss out on the next Tribe member to join Green Corps!
By investing your time recruiting for your job openings at the College – I guarantee you will find not only a plethora of qualified candidates, but also your future employee.
