Last Friday, City Year Boston participated in Comcast Career Day, an annual event in which AmeriCorps members receive top-notch professional development and training from representatives of national sponsor Comcast NBCUniversal.
More than 60 local Comcast and NBCUniversal employees provided career advice and practiced mock interviews to help corps members transition to the next step in their professional journey. Comcast also arranged professional headshots for all 265 City Year Boston AmeriCorps members, along with our fellow AmeriCorps members serving with City Year New Hampshire and City Year Care Force. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh delivered remarks on his own personal and career path and his advice to AmeriCorps members. He also took many questions from our AmeriCorps members. Check out photos from the event.
"Not everyone's career and life path is a straight line. Keep an open mind. And never give up." - Mayor Marty Walsh's advice to AmeriCorps members
