The Word:


Recruitment & Outreach Assistant, Temp

How many people can answer the question, "What do you do for a living?" with the answer, "I help find cures for cancer."  At LLS, employees take our mission seriously.  Whether you work in one of our chapters, are an accountant at the national office or a specialist in our Information Resource Center, you work each day on making our mission a reality:  Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Join us and give new meaning to the word "job."
