Action at INTER/VIEW 2018.
Let’s level for a moment: We think journalism can have a huge impact on connecting a city’s workforce with growing, innovative companies.
Hopefully you’ve seen our increased focus on content on nonprofit and grant-based organizational career growth, such as our series chronicling leadership movements within Philly’s social impact community: Power Moves or On The Market, our weekly round up that highlights our growing Philly impact jobs board, or even through the past month’s editorial focus on the Digital Divide which explored the “digital first”approach to the 2020 census and asked how that might impact Philadelphians who would like to pursue a census job. Read more on that, here.
Journalism helps us, as an organization, to be smarter about how we deliver info about things we’re promoting — like by taking a deep dive into the data behind-the-scenes of our impact job and volunteer fair INTER/VIEW, which goes down Wednesday, June 12 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at PHMC, Centre Square East, 1500 Market Street, East Tower, in Philadelphia.
Presented by Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) and organized by Generocity, INTER/VIEW is an informal social impact jobs fair showcasing mission-oriented companies seeking talented people seeking to do good on and off the job.
Each year, we poll our attending companies about the roles they’ll have open at INTER/VIEW.
Here’s a little bit about the culture of 14 of the companies hoping to meet you next week at INTER/VIEW:
“ASAP is dedicated to fostering a culture of partnership through our work with schools, libraries, community-based organizations, and recreation centers across Philadelphia.
