February 23, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Robert Kennedy

This quote is one of my favorite that has been a bit of a guiding light in my own career. When I think about my journey, or that of someone interested in public service – I think it really is about the ripple effect. 

The thing is that you can make a ripple in a bit way – say working for an organization whose work is literally saving lives around the world. Or you can make a ripple in a small way: smiling at a coworker, checking in on a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. The important point is to think about this question and wonder: how can I be that difference for someone today?

It’s harder to do than we think. It is so easy, especially at a busy season like now, when midterms are piling up, relationships are stressing you out, parents are annoying you, you can’t find an internship (and it seems like everyone already has one)… but the times when we, or our world, are under extreme stress and pressure is the exact time when this ripple can help (or, in turn, have a negative impact, too!). 

In the meantime, please be sure to check out the upcoming events and sign up to learn more. As always, you can check out the following resources for the latest career news:
