Post-Graduation 2017 Job Opportunities Making Social Change

The Fund for the Public Interest is a nationwide nonprofit that runs grassroots campaigns working on behalf of leading social change groups like the Human Rights Campaign – and they’re hiring!

From Kayleigh Gauthier of the Fund for the Public Interest:

We’re looking for smart, hard-working students who work well in a team and are eager to make real change after graduation.

The Fund for the Public Interest partners with leading nonprofit groups from around the country, providing the kind of people power it takes to build organizations for the long-term, win hard-fought campaigns, and make real change on some of the most important issues of our day. And we’re hiring!

Specifically, we’re hiring Canvass Directors to run our grassroots campaign offices across the country next fall – working on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign.
Change takes people power. The Fund’s job is to build that power for great groups working on important issues.

We all want to make a difference. But wanting change, or hoping for it, or even passionately arguing for it isn’t enough. That’s where you come in.

The president or the governor usually gets the headline when change does happen. But the real story takes place behind the scenes, with hundreds or thousands or even millions of people making their voices heard through petitions, emails, small donations, and meetings.

That’s people power, and that’s what you deliver with the Fund. You build and lead a team that recruits supporters, raises money and mobilizes thousands of people to take action — for the equality, for our democracy, and more.

We are looking for motivated students who want to lead the way in working for the change our country needs.

If you are interested in applying, visit our website at to fill out an application, or contact me directly – .

Megan Tanner is our Recruitment Director. She may also contact you about the position and you can reach out to her with questions at

Chicago Women in Publishing’s annual Fall Kickoff

The wait is almost over for the Chicago Women in Publishing’s (CWIP) 2016 Fall Kickoff gala on Wednesday, September 21!

This year’s speaker, April Eberhardt, is a world-recognized and self-described “literary change agent” who is leading her clients through the changing landscape of publishing, and she’ll be sharing her wisdom and experience about the future of publishing with us.

You won’t want to miss this dynamic speaker!

The annual Fall Kickoff is a great opportunity for CWIP members to connect or reconnect and for anyone interested in publishing to network and make new friends. Corporate partners and sponsors will also be on hand for networking and to answer your questions.

The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and a free wine, beer, or soft drink, along with a raffle ticket for a one-year CWIP membership and other publishing goodies. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased that evening.
