Fund For The Public Interest Internships

Dear Professor,

 My name is Michael Bralow and I am currently a Campaign and Recruitment Director for the Fund For The Public Interest. We are a national non-profit that runs grassroots campaigns. We work in partnership with groups like USPIRG, Environment America, Fairshare, and the Human Rights Campaign, on some of the most pressing Environmental and Social Justice Issues facing the United States. 
        Right now we are working in partnership with Environment New Jersey to protect our Shore, by closing serious loopholes in the Clean Water Act. Later in the year we will be partnering with NJPIRG (New Jersey Public Interest Research Group) to protect against the rise in antibiotic resistant infections by reducing the use of antibiotics on factory farms. 
        Every year we hire thousands of College students across the country for our campaign staff. We offer both Full-Time and Part-Time Positions. Our New Brunswick office is staffing up right now and we are looking to fill it with the brightest young minds around, so naturally I am reaching out to Rutgers Professors.  Some of the best ways for us to find the great candidates that I know Rutgers has to offer, is by having professors email our announcement to their students, or posting it on a group message boards. If you could please email your students with the blurb below, it would be greatly appreciated. 
        Thank you for your time and If you are willing to help with an email/posting/ or announcement please let me know! I am writing a sample posting at the bottom of this email.

Citizen Outreach Director

paid internship with Save the Earth Pledge Initiative

Hello Dr. Rodenburg.

We are in search of interns from the Rutgers Environmental Services Program that we can hire to help us work on the Save the Earth Pledge initiative - www.ste-p.org

We will be looking for help in flushing out key influencers and promote our effort to multiple communities working to solve global warming.  In our experience we recognize there are many good organizations working on global warming issues, but we have not found an independent source of citizen commitment. We are looking for paid interns who can help us build an independent site (www.ste-p.org) that demonstrates citizen interest.

We are looking to work with a student or students over a 3 month period of time to:
·       Help in the research of key influencers and their contact information
·       Design online essay contest and video contest
·       Build a community around the Save the Earth Pledge (ste-p.org) with viral & social communication tools

We are looking for a 15-20 hours per month at a rate of $15/hour. We would like to work with someone who has experience in social media and is committed to saving the environment and earth.

We would appreciate any recommendations for students – or information on how we can let your students know about this opportunity.

With much appreciation,
Jean Steckler & Bill Farrell

About the Save the Earth Pledge
STE-P.org is dedicated to all parties committed to saving the earth by reducing global warming. By signing the pledge at www.STE-P.org, world citizens, organizations, companies, and legislators make a public commitment to reduce global warming and to establish policies to reduce carbon emissions, There are many voices in this struggle to save the earth and by raising our hands together, we demonstrate our united commitment.
