Employment Development Opportunity: Fellowship for Leadership Development

The Fellowship for Leadership Development is a salaried program that combines business-focused, on-the-job experience with professional development activities.  The overall goal of the NIB Fellowship is for successful fellows to land professional and upwardly mobile managerial positions within the broader business community and the NIB network of associated nonprofit agencies.

The Fellowship now offers a new, shorter path to employment.  Along with the traditional, 20-month path, applicants also will be considered for a new path.  During the application process, candidates can interview for either or both paths – the candidate’s experience, academic background, skill set and interests will determine eligibility and placement in a particular path.

Legally blind individuals who have an undergraduate degree or higher, work experience, and passion for business are invited to apply. Fellows are selected based on academic achievement, experience, motivation, references and interviews.

Already 11 fellows have completed the NIB Fellowship since 2003 and have moved to management jobs, gained financial independence and, as business leaders, added value at all levels of the workplace and society. The current three fellows, who will complete in April 2012, are on the path to achieve the same success.  To read what fellows are saying about their experience after they complete the NIB Fellowship, click here.
