Current Context and Opportunity
Six years ago, Bottom Line began building and investing in additional programming designed specifically to improve employment outcomes (Go Far) for the students we serve. We were early to the understanding that, for the students we serve, having a four-year degree is not enough in today’s highly competitive job market. Each year, we have made incremental improvements to the career program and many of our students are enjoying admirable employment outcomes.
In keeping with our values of continuous improvement, we assessed our employability programming and student outcomes about a year ago. We came to the conclusion that we needed to (and could do) more to help our students enjoy strong employment outcomes.
We seek to hire a full-time, experienced nonprofit leader to lead the program design and implementation of the improved model. This is a National position, reporting to the Chief Program Officer. He/she will work closely with the National program team, program leadership in our current regions, career counselors, and regional development staff.
