Can I apply to be a project manager?
Yes! The main qualities we look for in project managers are excellent communication, strong leadership abilities, time management skills, and accountability. Project managers are the bridge between the non-profit client and the team members - it is your job to maintain the morale and spirits of the team while delivering a successful project. It is an extremely important and rewarding responsibility, and should only be considered if you can dedicate at least 8 hours a week. Please note that you need at least ONE SEMESTER of consultant experience at EmpowerED to apply for this role, so if you are new to EmpowerED, we recommend that you apply to be a consultant.
Can I apply to join the Executive Board?
Absolutely! The Executive Board is what allows EmpowerED Consulting to function as a whole. Please let us know about your interest in joining E-Board in your application and we can further discuss it during the interview.
Can I apply if I do not have consulting experience?
Can I still be a consultant if I’m not returning to campus in Fall 2020?
Yes, you can! All EmpowerED meetings and projects will be conducted virtually for the Fall 2020 semester. However, our clients operate in Eastern Standard Time (EST) so we ask that you commit to attending any EmpowerED meetings in EST and be flexible.
