    Public Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Outreach (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.


    I was recruited off of the street, a young man took my information, and the recruiters call me about four days later to set up an interview. I was told that casual dress was fine. It was supposed to be a group interview, but I was the only one who showed; so it was done one-on-one with the HR person. I was called about an hour later to start an evaluation period the following Monday. The first day, there is a training meeting. At that meeting you find out what organization you will fund raising for and will get a script to memorize. Once the script is memorized (hopefully by the next day) you have to recite it to your supervisor before they will let you public fund raise on the street. You have four days to sign up monthly donors in an evaluation period to be hired or "staff." If you don't accomplish that you might be given more time to "staff."

    Interview Questions

    • Before you get interviewed, you fill out an application. A couple of questions on the ap were "Why should we hire you?," "Why do you want to work for the company, and "Are there any organizations you would feel uncomfortable fundraising for."   Answer Question

Mission: Change the world, one conversation at a time. Our goal is to build a sustainable charitable sector. This means nonprofits are able to focus on the work they're founded to do without having to spend money getting people's attention for each donation. We would like to help make a world where our work is no longer necessary, and it becomes normal or even expected to set aside portions of your budget in order to provide ongoing fiscal support to what you believe in morally.
