The Career Development Fair on February 13th attracted representatives from 18 organizations, each of which offered Presidio students and alumni alike access to opportunities bound to help further individual career goals.  From internships with Environmental Entrepreneurs and Civic Solar, to EL project options shared by individuals from John Muir Health and Kiva, and the prospect of full-time openings with the U.S. EPA, the event continued the work we’ve been doing to connect members of our community with exciting sustainability-related work across the public and private sectors.
