Job Description

Online Communications Coordinator, New York, NY. Full-time.

A new opportunity exists at Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the leading nonprofit dedicated to serving our nation’s heroes and their families. IAVA is seeking an ambitious young professional to manage, grow and engage our 200,000 veterans and supporters.

Reporting to the Digital Engagement Director, the Online Communications Coordinator will have the opportunity to develop content, advise on campaign strategy and train IAVA staff in best practices around online communications. The Online Communications Coordinator will be located in IAVA’s national headquarters in New York City.

The ideal candidate will be an energetic self-starter, as well as:

Possess excellent written and oral communication skills;
Have the ability to work both independently and as a team player;
Demonstrate a creative and entrepreneurial spirit;
Demonstrate innovative, forward thinking;
Have interest in and/or experience with driving social change and social movements;
Have a positive attitude and great sense of humor; and
A commitment to IAVA’s mission and programs.
ABOUT IAVA

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) is the nation’s first and largest organization dedicated to serving the 2.5 million veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, from their first day home to the rest of their lives. IAVA strives to build an empowered generation of veterans through programs in four key impact areas: Health, Education, Employment and Community.

Health - IAVA makes it a priority to ensure that both mental and physical health needs are being effectively addressed in our community, and has provided support to over 20,000 returning veterans nationwide.

Education - With nearly a million new veterans headed back to school under the New GI Bill, IAVA has provided over 500,000 with the tools and support needed to make informed decisions about their education.

Employment - No veteran should come home from Iraq or Afghanistan to an unemployment check. To fight shockingly high joblessness rates, IAVA’s Combat to Career initiative helped over 270,000 veterans in their transition to civilian careers in 2011.

Community - Less than 1% of the country served in Iraq and Afghanistan – a stark contrast to the 12% that served during WWII. Building community, both online and on-the-ground, is a critical factor in fulfilling IAVA’s mission, which means bridging geographical divides to create a united, supported and proud movement of new veterans.

Job Description

Apply to be a Campaign Organizer
Two years of action for our environment, our democracy, our future

The Public Interest Network, which includes Environment America, PIRG and other groups, is hiring graduating seniors to join our team of campaign organizers. It’s a two-year program designed to give you a chance to make a difference on some of the most important issues of our time:
• Global warming. It’s a ticking time bomb for life on the planet. But if we’re going to solve it, we have to get past the climate deniers in Congress.

Overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. Most of us would agree it’s irrational to do anything that would risk the effectiveness of life-saving drugs. Yet that’s what will happen if we let factory farms keep using antibiotics just to fatten up healthy animals.

• Clean water. What could be more obvious than the fact that we all need clean water? But if we don’t take action, we’ll keep seeing more problems like the big chemical spill in West Virginia, the huge coal ash spill in North Carolina, and the massive toxic algae bloom on Lake Erie, all of which happened just last year.
Solving big problems like these isn’t easy – especially after the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision has made it easier for wealthy special interests to get their way in politics.
If you want to make a difference on big issues like these, you need a groundswell of public support – you need to organize, mobilize and energize people. That’s what this position is all about.
To learn more and apply, visit http://publicinterestnetwork.org/page/pin/campaign-organizer.

What campaign organizers do
As a campaign organizer, your number one focus is getting people involved. When people get involved, that’s when you see the energy and power it takes to win real change.
If climate denial and fossil fuel money are standing in the way of action on global warming, it means you organize citizen “climate defenders” to push back for clean power.
If it’s hard to force big agribusiness to change its ways, it means you mobilize doctors and nurses to call out the insanity of threatening millions of people with antibiotic-resistant superbugs and other health effects – just because of their overuse on healthy animals.
This is what our campaign organizers do. And you won’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world –
- recruiting new groups to join a coalition,
- speaking at a church basement or town hall meeting on solar power,
- organizing a news event to release a hard-hitting report on money in politics,
- meeting with an editorial board about the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms,
- or doing whatever it takes to build the groundswell of support that gets attention and pushes public officials to do the right thing.

You’ll get a chance to work on up to six exciting campaigns over two years. We’ll work together to organize and mobilize citizens to take on global warming, antibiotic overuse, fracking, GMO foods, money in politics, clean water and more. You’ll work with a great team of people. And you’ll make a difference on some of the most important challenges of our time.

Qualifications
We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Locations and start dates
We’re in cities across the country. You'll find a list of our current openings on our website. If you’re flexible, you can apply for multiple locations. We accept applications on a rolling basis. The program has two start dates in August and December.
Salary and benefits
Salary for this position is $25,000 in the first year and $26,500 in the second year. The Public Interest Network offers a competitive benefits package. Eligible staff receive paid holidays, sick days, and vacation days; and the opportunity to enroll in our group health care, college loan assistance, and 401(k) programs. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

To learn more and apply
Visit http://publicinterestnetwork.org/page/pin/campaign-organizeror contact our Recruitment Department at jobs@publicinterestnetwork.org.

Internships
Looking for an internship instead? Apply to be an Environment America or U.S. PIRG intern. You’ll learn how to make an impact on critical issues, and there’s no better way to get the experience to launch your career.

The Public Interest Network, which includes Environment America, PIRG and other groups, is hiring graduating seniors to join our team of campaign organizers. It’s a two-year program designed to give you a chance to make a difference on some of the most important issues of our time:
• Global warming. It’s a ticking time bomb for life on the planet. But if we’re going to solve it, we have to get past the climate deniers in Congress.

Overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. Most of us would agree it’s irrational to do anything that would risk the effectiveness of life-saving drugs. Yet that’s what will happen if we let factory farms keep using antibiotics just to fatten up healthy animals.

• Clean water. What could be more obvious than the fact that we all need clean water? But if we don’t take action, we’ll keep seeing more problems like the big chemical spill in West Virginia, the huge coal ash spill in North Carolina, and the massive toxic algae bloom on Lake Erie, all of which happened just last year.
Solving big problems like these isn’t easy – especially after the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision has made it easier for wealthy special interests to get their way in politics.
If you want to make a difference on big issues like these, you need a groundswell of public support – you need to organize, mobilize and energize people. That’s what this position is all about.
To learn more and apply, visit http://publicinterestnetwork.org/page/pin/campaign-organizer.

What campaign organizers do
As a campaign organizer, your number one focus is getting people involved. When people get involved, that’s when you see the energy and power it takes to win real change.
If climate denial and fossil fuel money are standing in the way of action on global warming, it means you organize citizen “climate defenders” to push back for clean power.
If it’s hard to force big agribusiness to change its ways, it means you mobilize doctors and nurses to call out the insanity of threatening millions of people with antibiotic-resistant superbugs and other health effects – just because of their overuse on healthy animals.
This is what our campaign organizers do. And you won’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world –
- recruiting new groups to join a coalition,
- speaking at a church basement or town hall meeting on solar power,
- organizing a news event to release a hard-hitting report on money in politics,
- meeting with an editorial board about the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms,
- or doing whatever it takes to build the groundswell of support that gets attention and pushes public officials to do the right thing.

You’ll get a chance to work on up to six exciting campaigns over two years. We’ll work together to organize and mobilize citizens to take on global warming, antibiotic overuse, fracking, GMO foods, money in politics, clean water and more. You’ll work with a great team of people. And you’ll make a difference on some of the most important challenges of our time.

Qualifications
We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Locations and start dates
We’re in cities across the country. You'll find a list of our current openings on our website. If you’re flexible, you can apply for multiple locations. We accept applications on a rolling basis. The program has two start dates in August and December.
Salary and benefits
Salary for this position is $25,000 in the first year and $26,500 in the second year. The Public Interest Network offers a competitive benefits package. Eligible staff receive paid holidays, sick days, and vacation days; and the opportunity to enroll in our group health care, college loan assistance, and 401(k) programs. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Internships
Looking for an internship instead? Apply to be an Environment America or U.S. PIRG intern. You’ll learn how to make an impact on critical issues, and there’s no better way to get the experience to launch your career.
