Jobs for Graduating Seniors at U.S. PIRG

U.S. PIRG still has openings on next year's organizing teams. We're taking on some big challenges like the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, big money in politics, standing up for consumers against big banks and Wall Street, and more.

We're looking for smart, talented candidates who agree that America has more problems than we should tolerate, but who also understand that there are plenty of solutions to these problems that we should be putting to use.

Could you help spread the word to any graduating seniors you know?

We're accepting applications on a rolling basis until all of our jobs are filled. Potential candidates can more and apply at

Current openings with U.S. PIRG:

  • OrganizingFellowship - PIRG Fellows are casting a spotlight on problems by doing everything from working on our nationwide grassroots public education campaign to holding media and visibility events and promoting new research online. You’ll be out in the real world — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking at a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing. This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders within PIRG. Location: DC, Boston

  • DigitalCampaigners - You’ll work to craft and win campaigns to get big money out of politics, win consumers the right to know what’s in their food, and make college more affordable for students. This is an entry-level position for recent-college graduates ready to turn their online skills into political action. We’re looking for people who are eager and ready to learn new skills, want to work hard, and who won’t be satisfied until they win. Location: Denver
  • CampusOrganizers - Students have been at the forefront of social change for decades. And the Student PIRGs have organized students across the country to get real results. When you become an Organizer with the Student PIRGs, you’ll recruit, train and organize students to tackle these problems head-on. You’ll teach them to run campaigns that make a difference in their community and our country, and help develop them into leaders who can continue to make an impact years after they graduate. Location: MA, NJ, CT, MD, WA, OR
