2018 GraduationMay 5th, 2018
Countdown to May 2018 Graduation!

We’ve had a medley of them come in recently, plus a source for more.  Read on!

service leagueThe Service League of San Mateo is looking for an office assistant; description follows: Service League of San Mateo

The Catherine Center is looking for a relief staff person (wonderful organization!): Relief Staff Job Position Opening

The San Carlos Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for the San Carlos public schools. They are looking for an intern to help with planning, managing a database and sending online solicitations for our annual spring gala.  This is an unpaid position, but if you are a Human Services student, this could be an internship opportunity for which you could get concentration units.  The job hours are flexible.  The description is here and the person to contact is: Kathy Parmer-Lohan, Executive Director, San Carlos Education Foundation, P.O. Box 1214, San Carlos, CA 94070.  SCEF SEEKS SUMMER INTERN

William Cotter is a Human Services grad who works for a roofing company in Belmont.  He sends the following:

Ideally, we are encouraging Spanish speaking individuals with excellent English written and verbal communication, as my roofers are primarily Spanish speaking, but they [the new hire] will still need to communicate with homeowners via phone and email. I will accept all applicants as long as they meet the minimum requirements. George (the Owner) sought me out mainly because I had helped build [The Grateful Garment Project], which demonstrated an ability to grow a business (which is now my hopes with whomever we decide to hire). George was not concerned with my lack construction/roofing knowledge, but rather more interested in my ability to learn. Almost three years later I now know more about roofing than most, and I happen to close nearly 39% of my bids (which is pretty unheard of). So things are going very well.
Attached are two job postings. Like I said we are looking to ultimately fill three roles in the short term: Admin Assistant, Estimator/Sales Assistant, and Production Management Assistant. However, the latter option seems unlikely this year, as it is a very detailed oriented job and we are entering the busy season. It would be extremely difficult to train someone unless they are prior experience during the busy season. I do have hopes that the Admin Assistant works well (especially if Spanish/English speaking), and maybe we can slide them into the Production Management Position. It is much easier to find an Admin than it is to find a good Production Manager.
FINALLY, if you are looking for a job or a career change but those posted here just aren’t what you are looking for, a reminder that NDNU’s Career Center, run by Carrie McKnight, has other career resources, some of which can be found at the following link: (Thanks, Carrie!)
