Marymount's First Annual 
Long-Term Service Fair
Tuesday, November 5th, 2013
12:30pm - 3:30pm in Lee Center Rec Gym

What if your job after college could provide you with the same rewarding experience of volunteering on a full-time basis?  If you are motivated by a desire to be of service to others, to broaden your experience and knowledge of the world, and to make a difference in other people's lives, then full-time service may be just the solution to your post-graduation plans! At this large-scale fair, representatives from 37 long-term service organizations will be present to share the unique and exciting opportunities they have to offer to students interested in committing a significant period of time to their organization following graduation.  Come get all your questions answered and learn about which organizations might be a great fit for you!  Most importantly, come learn how long-term service may provide you with far greater opportunities for responsibility and growth than would most paying jobs. When you return from such a challenging work experience, the skills you have developed and the responsibilities you have undertaken will be greatly valued by any employer and make you stand out amongst the crowd!
