Organizing Careers

If you’re good at organizing groups of people around a cause, why not turn that into a career?

Most positions in organizing are in non-profits, so an interest in the cause the non-profit is promoting is a major plus. While the duties of an organizer can vary widely, your main job as an organizer is to get people interested in the organization’s cause. Depending on your exact position, you may organize volunteers, canvassers, members of your non-profit’s userbase, or activists, getting all of them involved and passionate. Basically, you make sure the people who are interested in the cause are organized and ready to act.

While some positions in organizing require a bachelor’s degree, not all of them do. Just as important is your interest in the cause, so any experience you have that’s related to that (or to the non-profit world in general) will help.
