US PIRG Fellowship

Interested in making a difference right after graduating? Consider applying for a Fellowship with U.S. PIRG.

U.S.PIRG is a network of state-based consumer advocacy groups working on behalf of the public interest. In 30 states around the country, we work on federal and state issues ranging from public health policy, to higher education affordability, to consumer protection, to open, democratic governance. Through targeted research, coalition building, outreach to citizen activists and the media, and direct lobbying of decision-makers, we work to ameliorate some of the nation’s most pressing problems.

Right now we are looking to hire graduating seniors for our full-time Fellowship program. Fellows with U.S. PIRG will do research, advocacy and grassroots organizing on critical public interest issues. They will receive extensive training while working side-by-side with experienced staff in one of our 30 state campaign offices. And after two years on the front lines tackling important problems and pushing for smart solutions, Fellows will have the skills and experience it takes to become a leader with us, or other organizations working to make change happen.

A current fellow will be present to answer any questions, plus there will be pizza! 1st round Interviews will be held Thursday, November 21st.

Apply at http://www.uspirg.org/apply by 12 PM on Wednesday, November 20th to reserve an interview time.
