Career Opportunity

Here's some info on a neat job opportunity for people who will be graduating soon:


Do you want to take your conscience to work with you after graduation? Do you see a problem with what's happening to our environment, to our education system, and to our democracy? Do you want to do something about it?
So do we.

My name is Matt Wallace, and I work with the State Public Interest Research Groups (the PIRGs). When I graduated, I knew I wanted to work on some of society’s biggest problems, and the PIRGs gave me that chance. I work as a campaign coordinator for environmental issues for WISPIRG, working on campaigns that have ranged from protecting our national forests to lobbying the state to keep dangerous mercury pollution out of our waterways.

The state Public Interest Research Groups (the state PIRGs) are a nation-wide network of state-based public interest advocacy groups with offices all over the country. This year we're hiring more than 100 graduating college students to work on some of the biggest problems facing our country: to solve our energy problems, to protect our national forests, to reform the campaign finance system, to clean up our air, to make healthcare more affordable, and make an impact on many other public interest issues. We have positions available around the country.

Interested in being part of an organization that wins campaigns for the public good?
Check our website for more information, at If you’re interested in applying, send your resume to me at, or send me an e-mail so we can get in touch with you. We will be holding on-campus interviews on Monday, November 13th.

Please call or e-mail with any questions! Looking forward to hearing from you.
