Writing and resume building opportunity for School students

Friday, December 18, 2015

We are pleased to partner with the Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) organization on an exciting writing opportunity that will give you a chance to expand your popular public administration writing to ELGL's broad local government audience.

You may have noticed that LinkedIn offers a space for you to highlight your writing. (Here's a link to MPA alumnus Clay Pearson's LinkedIn profile - he's optimized this space perfectly). We want you to have an opportunity to share your perspectives and writing styles with prospective employers via LinkedIn. Plus, by adding your column to the ELGL blog, you are optimizing your work when prospective employers search for you.

Here's how the program works:

  1. Select a week to write for ELGL.org. Click here to sign-up.
  2. Work with MPA alumnus Matt Monedero to brainstorm topics or get some perspectives on your writing.
  3. Email your completed column to Matt by the due date, which you decided at Step #1.
  4. ELGL will then post your column, cross-promote it on public service and local government networks, and help you share your perspectives in the larger public administration community.

If you have questions about this program, please contact Matt or Kirsten. (Kirsten Wyatt is with ELGL and the City of West Linn, OR.) Either one would be happy to help you.
