The ESMS team is proud to announce that Cynthia has most recently accepted a board position with the West Chester University Foundation, Women in Leadership and Service. This is an exciting opportunity to not only learn more about this foundation, but to be able to spread the word to other students who have not yet been exposed to this organization.

So, what exactly is “Women in Leadership and Service” (WILS)? WILS is a strategic resource for women students of West Chester University providing educational programs, leadership opportunities, and financial support while advocating for individual success. This organization thrives to empower and shape present and future generations of women students at WCU through leadership, mentorship, service and philanthropy!

Within the year ahead WILS intends to expand their services to help students with providing scholarships, programming, networking opportunities, and mentoring experiences that will ensure WCU students will have access to the tools they need beyond the campus resources!

Cynthia is looking forward to making a contribution to WILS, which advocates success to women and their leadership positions. We would like to congratulate her on this rewarding position!

Michael Halebian&Co.,Inc. Job Campaign!

From the Interns Desk

job campaign

ESMS is reaching out to recent college graduates with a job opportunity for one of our clients, Michael Halebian & Co., Inc. An entry level sales position in Eastern PA is available and we have been targeting recent college graduates who are looking to start their first “real job.” The ESMS team created an advertisement publicizing the job opportunity, and we shared it with the West Chester University community and a Philadelphia job fair.

45% of college graduates are still living at home with their parents and 68% of them expect financial support from Mom and Dad after leaving school. This is a great opportunity to give these recent graduates a running start to being on their own and becoming more independent. With a good starting base salary plus sales commission, this job can help young adults move out of their parents’ houses and start living on their own.

The ad will catch the attention of any recent college graduate who is looking for their first entry-level position, especially those who are still living at home. We used a graphic (shown above) of a young woman walking into the sunshine with a suitcase to resemble moving out into the world on your own. It shows that a bright and exciting future lies ahead. The post states all the information needed for those who show an interest: the salary, location, and contact information/instructions for inquires. The tone of the ad is inviting and encouraging for grads to apply to. Nothing is scarier than applying for your first job and thinking the professional world is intimidating!

I posted the ad to the West Chester University Class of 2016 Facebook page, because those students will be graduating in the Spring, as well as on the ESMS page, Cynthia Ericson’s personal page, and my personal page. We also created a post on the Ram Career Network, which is a website for the career development of WCUPA students. The career network also shared the post to other PA schools in their system to include Bloomsburg University, California University, Cheyney University, Clarion University, East Stroudsburg University, Edinboro University, Indiana University, Kutztown University, Lock Haven University, Millersville University, Shippensburg University and Slippery Rock University.

Stephanie, our newest intern, also looked into local job fairs where the company could host a table promoting the job opportunity. She came across the Philadelphia Career Fair, a segment of National Career Fairs, which will be held on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016. Cynthia and a representative from Halebian will host a table with business cards and brochures for prospective job applicants.
