We are pleased to partner with the University of Kansas School of Public Affairs and Administration program on an exciting writing opportunity that will give KU students a chance to expand their popular public administration writing to ELGL’s broad local government audience. We’re calling it “KU Corner.”
LinkedIn offers a space for you to highlight your writing. (Here’s a link to KU MPA alumnus Clay Pearson’s LinkedIn profile – he’s optimized this space perfectly). ELGL and KU’s partnership gives students the opportunity to share their perspectives and writing styles with prospective employers via LinkedIn. Plus, by adding a column to the ELGL blog, students are optimizing their online presence when prospective employers search for them.
Here’s how the program works:
- KU students will select a week to write for ELGL.org. Click here to sign-up.
- MPA alumnus Matt Monedero will brainstorm topics or provide perspectives on student writing.
- Students will mail their completed column to Matt by the due date.
- ELGL will then post the column, cross-promote it on public service and local government networks, and help you share the perspectives in the larger public administration community.
Is your MPA program interested in a similar partnership? Have them contact Kirsten to set up a chance to partner with ELGL.
