We're looking for people who work hard, communicate well and are committed to positive social change. Depending on where you work the hours of the job are from 1:45pm to 10pm Monday thru Friday, or 9am to 5pm Tuesday thru Saturday. Many of our staff also participate in campaign projects and attend workshops and trainings.
The heart of the job is canvassing neighborhoods. That means we're either going door-to-door or out to busy public places to talk with as many people as possible about the campaign. We identify people who support the issue and get them involved. Every day, each one of our staff talk to about forty people, sign up five new members and raise between $150-$250 for the campaign. Additionally, we do petitioning, media work, and coalition building, which also helps us win the campaign.PAY: Therefore, the average hourly wage is $10-$15/hr and the typical weekly pay is about $400-$600. can also earn more if you are in a leadership position.
Canvassing is pretty basic, and you get better and better at it as you improve your skills and learn more about the issues. Training starts the first day, and it continues throughout your time on staff. Before you start on staff, there will be an observation day where you shadow one of our trainers to learn the basic skills. After that you'll be able to attend workshops on canvassing, campaign and leadership skills, go to regional events and trainings, and have weekly meetings with the directors.
We offer the best candidates the opportunity to be a Field Manager in Training. Field Managers are some of the most important people for the campaign. In addition to canvassing each day, the Field Manager is responsible for motivating staff to hit goals in a particular town or site. They train most of the staff and take part in weekly staff meetings. They are the leadership team and play an even larger role in having an impact on these issues. These positions involve more hours and more responsibility. Field Managers can earn more in their pay or anywhere from $13-$15/hr.
If you are graduating this year, or have already graduated, we also have career opportunities all across the country running these types of campaigns. You'll run one of our canvass offices, recruiting and hiring your staff, training and managing them to win our campaigns, and handling the day-to-day operation of a campaign. Please let me know if you are interested in doing this type of work long-term
