#1Get into the stream

  • Sign up on as many job announcement lists as possible
    • NOI, Democratic GAIN, EMILY’s List, Progressive Exchange, UnionJobs.com, Idealist.org, campaign alum, college alum
    • If you are in DC, go to events and fundraisers
    • Make sure you have your resume, cover letter and at least two writing samples (2 page memos) ready to go
    • Treat Informational Interviews like the real thing
slide7

Promote without being a jerk

  • Be curious, be genuine, be grounded
    • You rarely get a chance to make a second impression
    • Work on your “elevator pitch” – crisply articulate your career goals through interesting questions
    • Always stay positive and forward-thinking
    • Talk about what you did on a campaign or project (things you were directly responsible for)
    • Talk about concrete problems you solved
slide8

Social Protocol tips

  • Be formal until you are told you can be more casual.
  • Lead with respect, and thank in advance
  • Never ask for more than 15-30 minutes
  • Always offer to meet them where they are
  • Never be late, and avoid rescheduling
  • Always send a brief (3 sentence) thank you email after the meeting (wait at least 1 hour)
  • Be authentic
slide9

Gauge your network

  • Line up potential references – appropriate references are former bosses (not peers or colleagues)
  • Be sure to let them know where you are at in the job-seeking process
  • Never directly ask about jobs, but finesse by asking indirectly about leads
  • Develop validators – these are peers, colleagues or friends who are connected to the job decision-maker
slide10

Do your homework

  • Know the history of the organizations you are interviewing with
  • Never ask for advice for a job to someone from a rival organization
  • Same thing applies to personal relationships
  • Use Facebook and LinkedIn for research
