Women's Studies in Albany, Ny

My girfriend will be graduating in May from SUNY Albany with

a Master's in Women's Studies (also has a BA in English and

Philosophy), and she is very nervous about finding a job. She is

interested in gender equity education, advocation, ethics

consultation, lobbying, government, public policy, rape counseling and

higher education.

She plans to send cover letters and resumes out to potential employers

in Albany and the surrounding area. My question is this: To what

companies (corporations, non-profits, schools, government depts, etc.)

should she be sending inquiry letters and/or resumes?

A nice, long, thorough list (with some explanation for any companies

or organizations that at first glance might not seem likely

candidates) would be absolutely great!

Thanks very much!

  1. Hello amcilwraith,

    Some of these aren’t in Albany. But, I thought I would include them

    anyway. Some of them are online jobs. And, some are national

    companies that have offices in Albany.

  2. Before I checked on line using some of the items that you said your

    girlfriend was interested in. Then I thought I would look on Yahoo

    Yellow Pages I found the following organizations.

    I do want to say that in some cases there is limited information

    available on line about these organizations. But, in all cases I

    search to see if I can tell the flavor of each organization. I hope

    that I do a good enough job. Some of them are obvious, such as

    Planned Parenthood, but not being in New York, I can’t always tell

    about the reputation of an organization that is not national.
