I bet that you have some friends whom you can listen to for hours – friends who can straight up tell a story. Whenever they speak, people listen. I bet that you also have friends (or quite possibly had professors) who can make any story boring, no matter how good the facts of the story actually are. Storytelling is an art, but it’s also a skill that can be learned. It’s essential to making friends, getting jobs, and persuading people. Everybody loves a good storyteller, and that’s why StoryCorps, an independent non-profit, is focused on honoring and celebrating people’s lives through listening. Here’s the story on StoryCorps and their entry-level job opportunities.

A Story About Stories

Listening is an act of love. Think about that for a second. It’s a thought that has probably never entered your mind before, but it’s also the title of a book by Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps. Everybody wants to be listened to, and StoryCorps is trying to make that happen by traveling across the country and recording the stories of everyday people. They take a storyteller and a listener, put them together in a recording booth, and let the words flow. StoryCorps records the stories to CD for the participants, archives the CDs at the Library of Congress, and broadcasts the stories online and on public radio. It’s amazing how fascinating the stories of everyday people can be – just give a few a listen. StoryCorps is doing a remarkable job of documenting our country’s oral tradition and history.

Make StoryCorps Part of Your Story

If you love being told stories, there couldn’t be a better place to work than StoryCorps. They have a number of opportunities for new college graduates listed on their Jobs page that look like a lot of fun. If you want to get an inside look at what it’s like to work and participate in the StoryCorps project, there’s no better place that the StoryCorps Blog. Reading it will give you a better sense of what you might be doing as a Data Analysis Assistant – Community Outreach, Facilitator, Alaska Initiative, or Participant Relations Assistant, Marketing & Communications at StoryCorps. Each of these jobs looks remarkably interesting, and perfectly suited for a new grad. Take a look at the specific job stories (descriptions) for all of the details including how to apply to each job. The deadlines are soon, so act quickly. StoryCorps is based in Brooklyn, NY, so it seems that the jobs other than the Alaska Initiative Facilitator (which is in Alaska) are located there.
