Attention Alums looking to start or transition into a new career!
The Career Transitions Center (CTC) and The Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund are collaborating with the purpose of helping DMSF Alums secure professional employment after college. CTC works with recent college graduates and mid-career professionals by providing coaching and programming in order to teach people how to find work using social media, networking and effective resume and interviewing skills. CTC does not place participants in jobs directly; it seeks to teach them career management skills. In each of the last three years, 80% of their participants found work in six months, versus the national average of 12 months.
The Career Transitions Center of Chicago’s mission is to provide professional, emotional and spiritual support to those seeking a job, looking for meaningful work, or otherwise undergoing a career transition. CTC is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization providing professional assistance to individuals in employment transition.
Every applicant will be asked to submit an application (see link below) and provide a resume to Mr. Paul Morgan. Paul will liaise between DMSF and CTC until the acceptance and training process begins. This program is absolutely free so we encourage everyone with this need to apply! Applicants should send the required material as soon as possible.
Soft Deadline: Mid-October

DMSF is now accepting applications from alumni who are currently in college and on track to graduate between December 2015 and June 2016, for the DMSF Summer College Internship Program. DMSF is partnering with Chicago-area businesses to provide paid internships to DMSF Scholars who will be entering the workforce in 2016 after graduating from college. DMSF will select up to 15 alumni to participate in a series of three workshops to be conducted during the summer of 2014. Those alumni who participate in the workshops will be eligible to apply for paid summer internships with one or more of the companies participating in the DMSF internship program. Those companies will determine which program participants will be called in for interviews and which, if any, will be offered an internship during the summer of 2015. To be eligible to participate in this program, you must complete the application below and submit the application along with your most recent résumé, unofficial transcripts, and a writing sample to DMSF on or before June 10th.
