Congratulations to the first cohort of LA Fellows! The first two weeks of training have been a great success. We've covered topics including: Team Building, Career Exploration: Finding Your Focus, Introduction to Nonprofit Work, Grant Writing 101, The Psychology of Interviewing, Networking, Job Search Best Practices, Resumes and Cover Letters, and many more. We also held an optional computer class that many of the LA Fellows took advantage of that covered Transitioning to 2007, Intro to Word, and Mail Merge .
The first cohort has truly become a team sharing ideas, helping, and supporting each other. This week the LA Fellows are in the process of connecting with nonprofit organizations to start the volunteer portion of the fellowship.
