New Haven Nonprofit DAE Hosts Job Fairs for Seven New Positions
New Haven, Conn. (May 10, 2023) - DAE, a Connecticut nonprofit democratizing access to 21st century digital career and life skills for underrepresented youth, will host a series of job fairs at their New Haven headquarters in May and June to fill seven open positions. The new roles are a result of the organization’s continued growth and span all experience levels and departments including Education, Operations, and Development. DAE’s programming is designed to help high school students and young adults from historically underserved communities rapidly increase their mastery of technology skills and develop the personal and interpersonal skills required to form healthy and humane communities and workplaces. With a 91% retention rate, the nonprofit is giving students the tools and support needed to shape their own future and the world around them. 
The job fairs, held Tuesday, May 23 (10am – 2pm), Thursday, May 25 (4pm – 6pm), and Thursday, June 8 (10am – 2pm), will provide an opportunity for applicants to meet with DAE staff, learn more about the organization, and participate in a group interview. Fluency in Spanish is a plus for all positions. Interested candidates may submit their resume and request an interview slot by visiting:
Education Team: DAE’s education team works with high school students in the nonprofit’s year-long coding program in New Haven and Stamford to create a committed and inclusive learning environment around website development, video game design, and the Internet of Things. A variety of positions are available on this team for individuals with varying coding experience; at minimum, applicants must show a level of personal or professional experience with learning new technologies or coding. Applicants should have experience working with this age group in a setting where safety and relationship with students were a priority. 
Operations Team: DAE’s operations team is hiring an Operations Manager accountable for the oversight and execution of all facilities and operations logistics. The ideal candidate will have 5–6 years of experience in an operations and/or manager role that required a high level of project management and coordination activity. There are also a variety of other part-time Operations positions available.
