Writing Associate for Public Interest GRFX

Entry Level Position

Do you believe the power of story, image and design can help organize a better world?

Global warming. Fracking. Politics corrupted by billionaires and Super PACs.

It's no secret: As a society, we've got some major challenges in front of us.

So how we do handle them? How do we set about addressing the biggest problems of our time and organizing a better world?

By mobilizing hundreds of thousands of people at the grassroots to take action.

That's where the Public Interest Network comes in.

We're a nationwide network of nonprofit groups dedicated to bringing people together in the fight for a greener America, a more democratic America, and a

government that works for all of us, not just powerful corporations.

If this sounds slightly ambitious, that's because it is. But you're ambitious too. You've got big ideas, big dreams, and an even bigger drive to achieve
them. And that's why we need you.

The job

Public Interest GRFX is the in-house communications team for the Public Interest Network. To build the people power it takes to overcome powerful special

interests and fix the urgent problems we're facing as a society, we need to inform and motivate the public. And to do that, we need to tell our story in
ways that connect with people—intellectually, emotionally, politically—and motivate them to join the fight for a better world.

That'll be your job.
As a writer, you'll be the primary creative point person for a number of groups within the Public Interest Network—meaning that essentially, you'll be
responsible for establishing the voice of your groups. You'll help figure out where the public is at on an issue, then craft a message that will grab your
audience's attention and incite them to action. Then you'll express that message through a number of different channels, including email, newsletters,
direct mailings, educational brochures, canvassing materials, websites and more.

For instance: Do we have a big, but time-sensitive opportunity to fight climate change? You'll make sure people hear the right message at the right time—so
they’ll take action that gets results. Are big food companies spending millions to fight GMO labeling? You'll show people the power of grassroots
organizing—and you'll get them fired up to get involved.

In short, we're building a movement. And we want you to be its voice.

The requirements

  • You're smart:
    You can get your head around complex issues, write clearly and persuasively, and manage multiple projects.
  • You can write: 
    You have at least a year’s experience writing for publication – at the campus newspaper, writing newsletters and emails for a group you volunteer with,
    or similar relevant experience. After all, the job title is "Writing Associate."
  • You want to make the world a better place: 
    You have experience volunteering or working for an issue or cause you feel passionate about.
  • You're creative: 
    You're able to anticipate or define a problem, brainstorm solutions, propose or decide on a course of action, and follow through. You can think on your
    feet, brainstorm a hundred ideas, and respond to unexpected challenges with confidence.
  • You're good with people: 
    As the primary point person for your groups, you'll be working with a number of different people. You need to be a good listener and collaborative
  • You're a leader: 
    We want people who are eager to take on more so they can expand the scope and impact of their work. We know you've got a lot to contribute—don't be
    afraid to show it.
  • You're accountable:
    You respect goals, deadlines and budgets (let's be honest here—we're a nonprofit. Every dollar counts).

Does this sound like you? Good.
