Post-Graduation Public Service Programs

Want to spend a year or two after graduation making a difference in the country and/or world? Committing to full time service and/or public service fellowships after graduating from college has grown increasingly popular in the past 40 years. In fact, many of today's distinguished leaders in fields including politics, business, and journalism have completed such terms of service through national and international programs. As critical needs become more pervasive and apparent, young idealists armed with their college educations are joining these programs to meet these needs, gain real-world experiences, and hone their own skills. Alumni of these programs not only gain the satisfaction of having contributed to the public good, but may leave with that edge needed to attain acceptance into lucrative grad programs and professional positions in their fields.

As these programs grow increasingly selective, let the Lindy Center support you in preparing for the application process. It's never too early to start! Click here for more information or contact the Lindy Center at cce@drexel.edu for more information.

Job openings in most organizations are generally filled in three ways. The first way is through internal postings, which makes the most economic sense. For example, about 50% - 60% of Drexel Seniors will be offered a position with a former co-op employer. The second option is to advertise the position, which can be expensive & time consuming. The third and most popular strategy is through networking. Did you know that over 80% of job openings are never listed anywhere? Learn the strategies needed, through networking, to access The Hidden Job Market and locate your ideal position!
