Throughout the recent recession, times have been tough all-around. Food banks have seen shortages even while demand for food assistance has risen substantially. Non-profits of all stripes have seen a decline in donations, and volunteers have been harder to come by.
But though these scary statistics hold true for many nonprofits, Share Our Strength has been able to rise above it all. Our fiscal outlook is rising with every forecast, and the funds we allocate to on-the-ground programs have been increasing, not decreasing. This is due to Share Our Strength’s unique experiences with cause marketing (earning us the 2009 Golden Halo Award Winner as Cause Marketer of the Year) and a deep relationship with its many volunteers and corporate sponsorships across the nation.
In fact, throughout this entire recession, Share Our Strength has continuously had a careers page up, because we’re actively looking for more talent to join our team.
Our Jobs page has a list of many positions that we need to fill in order to effectively focus on our efforts to end childhood hunger. I hesitate to list the positions we need in this blog entry, since available positions will of course differ over time, but in general, we always have a wide variety of positions that we need filled by people of various abilities. From Americorps volunteers to on-site local directors, design and web interns to managers in each of our program tracks, there is always something available for job-seekers to look through.
So if you’re looking for a new position and want to make a sincere difference with your day job, then please check out our careers section. You may just find exactly what you’re looking for.
