Quote of the Week
How is it possible not to feel that there is communication between our solitude as a dreamer and the solitudes of childhood? And it is no accident that, in a tranquil reverie, we often follow the slope which returns us to our childhood solitude.

Job Links: Several students have mentioned looking for jobs recently, so I wanted to catalog a few job search sites that are great for communication and organizational development jobs in the St. Louis area:
- The Rome Group is a nonprofit consulting group in the Central West End that also happens to run an amazing job listing page for nonprofit jobs in St. Louis. Other job boards in nonprofit work are the Nonprofit Services Center, CSPRC
- For university jobs, search HERC.
- For jobs outside of St. Louis, consider searching One Day, One Job (a site that lists one job every day) for the city of your choice. For Chicago, for instance, click here.
- For corporate jobs, search individual company webpages or look at PRSA’s job listing page for St. Louis or the national PRSA page.
