Thinking About a Career…

“Would you consider pursuing a career at your host site if given the opportunity after your year of service?”

The crazy thing about AmeriCorps is that you’re placed at your site for only a year. As soon as you start getting used to your position, it is time to start thinking about where you are going next. Personally, I would jump at the opportunity to remain at the Youth Bureau beyond this year. I think that its mission of positive youth development is so important, especially in Rochester, and I’ve really enjoyed being a part of that. It’s also just a fun office to work in. That’s not to say there aren’t ever problems or conflicts, but at the end of the day it’s not a bad gig.

As far as a long-term career… Who really knows where they will be in 3, 5, or 15 years??? I’m just enjoying today, and I think working at the Youth Bureau would be a great fit for me right now.
