Behind the Scenes

HECUA career board – March 22nd, 2017

A small grey kitten with blue irises stands in front of a brown wall. The kitten's eyes are crossed and it looks pretty goofy.

Each Wednesday we compile a list of jobs that we think might interest our alumni. In the past, this list has existed informally on our twitter account (@hecua_offcampus – follow us!) using the hashtag #hecuacareerboard. From now on we’ll also post an annotated list on our website. If you’re an employer and you’d like to submit a job, email Laney Ohmans at lohmans<@> with a brief description of the position and why it would be a good fit for a HECUA student or alumni. If you’re a student and you’d like our help finding a job, email Laney with a brief description of what you’re looking for!

Conservation advocacy group Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness is looking for a summer education intern

Our friends at St. Stephen’s Human Services are hiring a Development and Communications Coordinator

This would be a good fit for an extremely detail-oriented person who is beginning their career in non-profit development and/or communications.

If you care deeply about ending homelessness and you want to raise money for folks who have been working steadily towards that goal, this is the job for you.
