    Coro Fellows Program

    Coro Fellow In Public Affairs (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsMore than anything the Fellows Program gives you time to figure out what it is that you want to do. You;ll have 11 other people with different perspectives and backgrounds to push your understanding of the world. You'll venture into a learning zone often and will be challenged to make your own decisions.

    ConsThe focus during the program is very int he moment. What happens after the fellowship ends is up to you. It can certainly be challenging to apply to any prestigious graduate program and get in, but it's been done many time over,

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider having staff that can support the transition to Coro (housing, re-location to a new city, ec) and exit (graduate school coaching, transition to working world) for Coro Fellows to make more sound deicisons on their futures.

    Coro Center for Civic Leadership: A Former Fellow's View

    Coro Fellow In Public Affairs (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe Coro Fellowship allows the young aspiring leader to explore different sectors through lectures and informational interviewing with leaders in each field, while taking on one-month consulting projects for different institutional clients in ech sector: Government, Business, Political Campaign, Labor, Non-Profit/Philanthropy. The network Coro provides its Fellows access to is wide and far-reaching.

    ConsThere is less focus on helping Fellows secure post-graduate employment than there should be. Fellows must be driven and committed, for the hours can often be long and grueling, to complete projects under extremely tight deadlines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI encourage the Coro management to build in more concrete skill-building and career placement advice workshops. Also, I would include more opportunities for group work in smaller groups, rather than as the full class of twelve Fellows.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
