VISTA members and sites

It's that time of the (VISTA) year and some of us are feeling the cruch to find a job by the end of our service a little more than two months! Not to worry, though. In this VISTA Living Blog, you have a wide array of resources, opportunities, tips and tools to help you move forward in your job search. Now, onward!
We know that all 52 of our VISTA members are doing important work in their host organizations and in their communities. We believe that the full impact of their capacity-building service is probably not yet apparent and is often difficult to quantify. That said, midway through the year there are already some impressive statistics and stories that we can share and celebrate!
Whether your plans include going back to school, looking to land a job, exploring different fields, or having an existential are some ideas for finding information, resources, and networking opportunities. Feel free to share any ideas or resources you might have in the comment box!
