Jobs for SOC Seniors with US PIRG

Right now U.S. PIRG is looking to hire 25 graduating college students into our full-time Fellowship program. Fellows with U.S. PIRG will do research, advocacy and grassroots organizing on critical public interest issues. They will receive extensive training while working side-by-side with experienced staff in one of our 30 state campaign offices. And after two years on the front lines tackling important problems and pushing for smart solutions, Fellows will have the skills and experience it takes to become a leader with us, or other organizations working to make change happen.

But most importantly Fellows will get the opportunity to make an impact on some of the most pressing issues facing our country today, including:

  • Health care: The cost of health care is skyrocketing. It’s time for insurers to deliver the care we pay for, and we are helping consumers use the new health insurance marketplaces to get quality care that won’t break the bank.
  • Democracy: Money isn’t speech. Corporations aren’t people. We’re building a student movement to overturn the Citizens United decision and to get big money out of our elections.

Salary & Benefits

In an entry-level position, you will earn $24,500 over the course of your first year with U.S. PIRG and $26,000 in your second. Salary for experienced candidates is commensurate with relevant professional experience. In addition, full-time staff can opt in to our fully-covered state health care coverage, are eligible for paid sick days and vacation days, can apply for our college loan assistance program, and are also eligible to join our 401(k) program in their second year.
