Post on public service as a means of gaining skills and experience in a tough job market.

They see it as a way to gain skills, learn more about themselves and build relationships, while giving back to the community and earning enough money to get by.

Some of our favorite orgs and folks are mentioned – EarthCorps, Seattle U’s Gayatri Eassey and ED of the WA Commission for National and Community Service Bill Basl.
