From the super cool Adam Rashkoff ’13:
Once you graduate, do you want to take a job that teaches you valuable career skills, puts you in with a supportive peer group, encourages you to think creatively, and empowers you to contribute to social good?
If you answered YES to these questions, you may be interested in Venture For America, a new nonprofit organization that matches high achieving college students with full-time jobs (read: NOT internships) at start-up companies in cities across the country.
VFA Fellows attend an intense summer training program in broadly applicable business skills (i.e. financial analysis/modeling, project management, sales, search engine optimization/marketing, taking care of business, etc.) before spending two years working at a start-up company that fits their individual skills, interests, and experience. Note that this opportunity is open to students from all majors, and no prior business experience is required.
If I’ve piqued your interest, come hear from VFA Fellow Josh Levine ’12, on Monday, Nov. 26 (first day back from Thanksgiving break) at 7:00pm in Usdan 110. Josh is currently working in Las Vegas with Downtown Project, an urban development company that aims to transform Downtown Las Vegas into the “most community-focused large city in the world.” His main focus with Downtown Project is working with physician-rapper Zubin Damania (aka ZDogg MD) to improve healthcare through the creation of an innovative primary care clinic. Come find out more about Josh’s work at Downtown Project and his VFA experience on Monday night!
