Dear Campus Philly Stakeholder,
Campus Philly stands at the center of the business and talent communities. Read about how we’re connecting these two communities through our My Philly Summer Program and Online Job and Internship Fair. Campus Philly’s just-released policy paper for mayoral and city council candidates focuses on what more we can do to connect talent and business in Philadelphia and the Talent Greater Philly Regional Challenge celebrates businesses and higher eds doing a great job of preparing our region’s talent for today’s jobs.
We’ve found that college students fall in love with Philly when they are here as interns over the summer. Our corporate members’ interns are invited to join us for our My Philly Summer Program, which includes: a Philly 101 presentation; free arts & culture tickets through our Open Arts program; insider info on the summer’s best events, highlighted on our website; and a special invite to the My Philly Summer Party, the city’s biggest networking event for interns taking place on Tuesday, July 14 at Ralph’s Café at the top of the Comcast Center.
If you want to learn more about My Philly Summer or are interested in corporate membership, contact Ashlie Thornbury at firstname.lastname@example.org
Speaking of summer.
Campus Philly’s Online Job & Internship Fair, taking place March 23 – 27, is an event that directly connects employer needs with regional college talent for summer internships and post-graduation jobs. Recruit talent from 31 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region – all online and for free! This year, we’re featuring both jobs AND internships, specifically for college students as well as recent and soon-to-be grads. Go to campusphilly.org/careers and register your opportunities today.
We’re not the only ones talking about talent.
Mayoral and City Council candidates throughout the city have noted the importance of talent for growing the city’s economy and continuing the population growth that Philadelphia has experienced over the past few years. Campus Philly has a lot to say about attracting and retaining talent and we’ve presented that in a policy paper for all candidates to arm them with the facts and figures and strategies they need to continue the city’s upward trajectory. Read the policy paper here.
Join us at the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce State of Partnerships in Education event on Thursday, April 30, 2015 from 8:00-10:00 a.m. at the DoubleTree Suites Philadelphia West in Plymouth Meeting, PA. Five different higher ed and business honorees of the Talent Greater Philly Regional Challenge Awards will be unveiled. To learn more and to RSVP, click here.
And congrats to Cabrini College.
Cabrini College has been recognized with the Norristown Area School District as the first recipients of the Lindy Award for Excellence in K-16 Partnerships by the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development. Six years since the launch of a Latino Mentoring Program at the Norristown Area High School, the partnership has expanded to two middle schools with an emphasis on preparing students for high school and post-secondary goals. The partnership began as a program to increase the Latino graduation rate at NAHS and the number of Latino students applying to college.
Thanks as always for your continued support of Campus Philly,
Deborah Diamond, Ph.D.
