Learned a lot about the non-profit culture.
Pros: wonderful dinners, conference travels and a parking space!
This was the perfect job for me, because I had the wonderful opportunity of working under the leadership of Vernon Jordan and a well oiled staff that was committed to serving minority communities across the country. I met excellent leaders of the Urban League affiliates who shared insight about community service and their hopes for the future of their communities. I worked in Management Training for these Directors, so when they came to town for training, it was a joy to be in the same room with them. The hardest part of the experience was coordinating the logistics of the training sessions, but in the end it all worked out beautifully.
