Thrive Scholars is looking to recruit an experienced and effective Program Director, who will lead the development and implementation of our new Engineering and Technology Career Pathway. In this inaugural role, the Director will ensure that interested Scholars are equipped to excel in the engineering and tech fields, across sectors, including corporate, government, research, consulting, think tanks, and academia.
At the onset, the Program Director will have the opportunity to shape the design of the new Engineering and Technology focused career development curriculum that will be embedded within the holistic six-year Thrive Scholars program. The goal of this program is to ensure that Scholars gain relevant experiences, knowledge, and skills to support their career success in this field. Once the track is launched, beginning in summer/fall 2021, the Program Director will oversee Engineering and Technology programming and provide tailored individual career support to a caseload of Scholars within the Engineering and Technology track.
In this role, you will be able to bring together your expertise of Engineering and Technology career paths, your skills in program and project design and implementation, and your rapport-building and coaching abilities, to create and deliver a transformative career development experience for our Scholars.
