Do you know a recent or upcoming graduate (May 2015) who is interested in public policy and creating meaningful change for North Carolina? The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University is seeking a recent or upcoming graduate to work as an Emerging Leaders Fellow. I hope you will pass along this exciting opportunity to outstanding students or young leaders you know who are looking for opportunities in public service in North Carolina.
IEI brings people together around complex issues in pursuit of a single goal: to enhance North Carolina’s long-term prosperity. We use a collaborative approach, gathering diverse groups of people from across North Carolina to respond to critical questions that span sectors, regions, and perspectives. We work across four main focus areas– education, health, natural and built environments, and the economy. Our signature event is the Emerging Issues Forum, and this year’s topic was Innovation Reconstructed.
IEI, with the generous support of BB&T, has established the Emerging Leaders Fellow program as part of an extended effort to train our state’s up-and-coming leaders. IEI is looking for applicants who are still in the beginning stages of their professional life with great potential for leadership and who would benefit from receiving a broad range of experiences and guidance from staff at IEI.
IEI will provide a competitive compensation package including: $45,000 annual salary, state holidays and 10 days paid vacation, employee benefits, and a $1,000 professional development allowance. Applicants must apply by 11:59 p.m. on March 15, 2015. For more information about the position and how to apply, please visit, http://iei.ncsu.edu/about-us/staff/open-positions/23monthfellow/.
The Emerging Leaders Fellow program is an unparalleled opportunity for young leaders to learn about public policy and economic development and work with stakeholders across the state to make a difference in North Carolina communities. I hope you will forward this information to anyone you think may be interested.
