If you want to be part of a hard-working, energetic, and innovative team dedicated to improving the world of higher education, then Sightlines is for you!
Sightlines’ offices are situated in three unique and exciting locations that have much to offer. If you join the Sightlines’ team and are new to your location, we will provide you with a detailed guide to the area. However, below are some of the highlights of each location:
Guilford, CT (New Haven Area):
Guilford is a quaint historic New England town on the shoreline of Connecticut. Situated in the middle of Boston and New York City (which are just a quick train or car ride away), Guilford boasts beautiful views of the Long Island Sound, delicious restaurants, eclectic boutique shops, and a classic New England “green” in the center of town. It is even home to the oldest stone house in New England (now the Henry Whitfield Museum)! In addition, Guilford is just a 15 minute drive to New Haven, a bustling city that has abundant shopping, dining and entertainment options. A sampling of other Connecticut attractions includes SleepingGiantState Park, the Mark Twain House, Mystic Seaport, and the Connecticut Wine Trail.
Jenkintown, PA (Philadelphia Area):
Jenkintown is a small suburban town founded in 1874 and located just 10 miles north of Center City Philadelphia. Recently undergoing a revitalization in its Uptown West Neighborhood, Jenkintown is a pedestrian-oriented community where residents walk to local shops, restaurants and community happenings. The town is also located on the SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) line, allowing for a quick and easy commute to and from Center City. Philadelphia attractions include the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, LovePark, and Philly Cheesesteaks, to name just a few. And although there are plenty of sights to see in Philly, it is also a great place to live according to some of our Sightlines’ team members!
As the only Sightlines office located directly in a major metropolitan area, our Portland-based crew enjoys all the benefits that the city and the Pacific Northwest have to offer! Founded in 1845 and incorporated in 1851, Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon and home to nearly 600,000 people (over 2.2 million if you include the whole metropolitan area). Although by numbers the city is large, in reality it has a friendly, small-town feel and is extremely easy to navigate, due to convenient public transportation and an intuitive design. The city is split into four quadrants (Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Southeast) and divided east to west by the WillametteRiver; each quadrant has its own distinct culture and feel. No matter where you go in Portland, however, a few things will remain the same – you’ll find delicious food, great beer, amazing views, endless entertainment, friendly people, and lots of dogs. Outside of Portland, be sure to visit Mt. Hood, the Pacific Northwest coast, Crater Lake (but only in the summer) and Seattle, which is just a 2 ½ hour drive away.
