Career Program Specialist - Arts + Puerto Rico Programs

The Career Program Specialist leads Posse’s Career Programming for the Posse Arts + Puerto Rico Programs. The mission of the Career Program is to help Posse Scholars transition from being leaders on campus to become leaders in the workforce. Career Program Specialists focus on three key responsibilities: (1) Developing and leading exciting, career-enhancing programming (e.g. workshops and special events); (2) Collaborating with the Director and development staff to cultivate and manage career partnerships; and (3) Connecting Scholars and alumni to resources that allow them to access a range of career development services, including internship and job search support, skill-building, and ongoing career guidance. As the virtual program’s leader for career programming, the Career Program Specialist supports other Posse programming as needed in collaboration with the Program Directors. An important part of the work involves the regular collection of data and reporting on career outcomes. The Career Program Specialist is also a part of the National Career and Alumni Programs team and, as such, is responsible for working with national staff to coordinate the delivery of high-quality programming for Scholars and Alumni. The Career Program Specialist will travel to up to six partner universities annually.
