12 Feb Recap: Careers in Social Change Event at Baldwin Wallace University
On Jan. 17, 2018 The Presidents’ Council was pleased to participate in Careers in Social Change, presented by Baldwin Wallace University (BW). Careers in Social Change was a networking opportunity for BW students to explore career opportunities with local organizations that drive social advancement. Juniors and seniors were challenged to envision ways in which they could give back and aid in the success of others. Among the groups in attendance were City Year, The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, and The Council for American-Islamic Relations.
Students approaching graduation were excited to learn different ways to engage with The Presidents’ Council. They were intrigued to discover that The Presidents’ Council offered opportunities that include the following:
- Making valuable connections with local successful business owners which could lead to future job offers or internships.
- Opportunities for volunteering.
- Internships at The Presidents’ Council in multiple capacities including but not limited to social media, The PC Scholars program and administrative duties at The Presidents’ Council.
Staff from The Presidents’ Council discussed the student membership level, and how that could benefit their success post-graduation as well. Student membership provides free admission to networking events which can be crucial in securing that elusive first full-time job after graduation. Students will also benefit from member pricing to business chamber events which are also great for networking. Essentially, the students in attendance were pleased to find out there are resources available to help them succeed through The Presidents’ Council that they may not have known about if it weren’t for this informational program presented by the Career Services faculty and staff at Baldwin Wallace University.
The Careers in Social Change event at Baldwin Wallace was informative, not only for the students, as The Presidents’ Council staff in attendance found great value in talking with the future workforce. Expressing their thoughts and feelings on contributing to the core goals of The Presidents’ Council got students to think about their future in ways they may not have previously. Students who gathered information from our table left motivated by the fact that there’s an organization in place to ensure the success of minorities in the workforce. The participation of young professionals and recent graduates in The Presidents’ Council is vital to our growth and success.
