We are pleased to announce that the New Organizing Institute will hold a New York Progressive Career Fair. We believe that developing and empowering new leaders is critical to the success of progressive grassroots movements - and we want to help you take your first step towards launching your career in organizing or, for more experienced organizers, find your next job.
Participants from NYC will come together to hear from NOI’s Job Placement Team to gain valuable insight into working on progressive campaigns or in the progressive movement. Additionally, all attendees will receive personalized resume feedback and have opportunities to meet with hiring organizations in the NYC area.
RSVP now to save your spot at the career fair.
FOR NEW ORGANIZERS
If you are looking to take the first step in your organizing career, our placement team will work with you to find a local campaign where you can gain invaluable experience to add to your resume. Whether you are available to work on on a campaign for Get out the Vote or you only have time on the weekends, we will find something that works with your schedule. After Election day, we will assist you in adding your experience to your resume to prep you for your future career in the progressive movement.
