INTER/VIEW is fast approaching, and we are gearing up to give employers a chance to get to know the real you.
Unlike the stiff, suit-filled job fairs of old, INTER/VIEW will provide light food and beer to loosen everyone up and provide the opportunity for you to get to know employers informally. You’re going to have to work with each other every day, after all, so we think both sides should get to know the real deal.
Each one of the participating companies are on a mission to make Philadelphia a better place. There will be employers as well as volunteer-seekers; we’re interested in citizens getting involved inside and outside the office. Whether you’re actively looking for a job or looking to get plugged in to local organizations, INTER/VIEW will give you the opportunity to see what’s out there.
Here’s a taste of a few of the organizations that will be exhibiting at INTER/VIEW on Tuesday, April 19, at Christ Church Neighborhood House in the Great Hall from 5 to 8 p.m.

THE MISSION: EducationWorks provides academic support, career readiness and enrichment programming throughout Greater Philadelphia.
