I loved being able to help others and educate the public on current events.
Working outside and dealing with ignorance which can sometimes be disheartening but there is strength in struggle.
Advice to Management
I worked at Environment Massachusetts part-time for less than a year
Really warm working environment; welcoming to newbies; prepares you fully for the job at hand; educates you on the issues you are advocating for; great practice in canvassing/speaking with strangers... who do not want to be spoken to; really encouraging environment
Long commutes to destination of canvassing area (which would be the case for any job similar to this), but it can make you feel like you are killing the environment more than you are saving it when... it comes to traffic; sort of awkward hours (12-10pm), so you can’t really have a supplemental morning or night shift anywhere else; if you are looking for a very professional environment, this is not the place (but if you want a more laid back and fun job, this is a great fit)
Advice to Management
Expand to cities outside of Boston, or set up a way to work remotely. It would be great if the surrounding cities in Massachusetts could also participate, and then only go to Boston when it was... necessary. The daily meetings felt kind of unnecessary, and it could have a broader expanse if more people could participate in the canvassing (all they really need are the informational materials, ipad, and to maybe skype in or something instead of actually being in Boston)
