Why students should consider working for a nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations from across San Joaquin County sent representatives to talk to University of the Pacific students Thursday about openings they have for jobs and internships.

While many students think of government or the for-profit sector when looking for internships, Campbell Bullock of the research organization Data Co-op says nonprofits offer a way for students to earn, learn and give back.

“This is the backbone of what is happening within communities,” he said. “(Students) get a chance to experience that and see it … but they get to be part of that mission.”

If you are interested in a job at a local nonprofit, contact the University’s Career Resource Center.
