Internship posted by: Fund for the Public Interest
Posted on: January 12, 2013
To ensure success on our Summer 2013 campaigns, this spring we are hiring leaders from the top colleges across the country to work on our campaign staff. We will be visiting schools to hold information sessions and interviews, posting online, using social media to spread the word and contacting students all over the country.
The Recruitment Outreach Intern will work with our team of professional recruiters to run this project, including outreaching to career centers to schedule visits, using social media and online job postings to find candidates, responding to candidates' inquiries about the positions, and helping asses our progress. There is a lot going on in our office, so the internship can be catered toward a specific aspect of the office that you are most interested in.
The ideal candidate will have a strong passion for environmental and social justice issues, be a hard worker ready to learn with hands-on experience, and have a good sense of humor. Leadership and project management experience a plus.
Hours and dates are flexible depending on your schedule, but we are looking for a commitment of 5-15 hours per week in our downtown Boston office. There are only 5 positions available.
Start and end dates are flexible, and we are accepting applications on a rolling basis. Someone who can start right away would be ideal.
About the Fund
The Fund For The Public Interest is a national nonprofit organization working to increase the visibility, membership and political power of the nation's leading environmental and progressive groups.
The Fund was launched in 1982 to develop campaigns and technologies to engage Americans in public interest advocacy efforts. Through our fundraising and non-fundraising canvasses, we've gathered over 20 million petition signatures over the past 25 years and raised over $20 million for our partner organizations in the last year alone.
Current Fund partners like Environment California and Human Rights Campaign are expanding their donor base and passing tougher legislation against air pollution, forest clear-cutting, hate crimes, and special interest money in politics. We owe our success to the fusion of our staff's grassroots organizing experience, cost-conscious attitude and work ethic with our partner groups' issue expertise, initiative and vision.
