Mission: The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (More than a year)
Amazing culture, loose management (no micromanaging) supportive of family, meaningful work. Great benefits.
Jobs can dissolve and positions can be eliminated without warning.
Advice to Management
Make better use of your social media accounts. Invest in community work, look at grass-root fundraising, not just chasing big fish. There is value in the smaller, local community groups, and health organizations. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it can’t be impactful. Your presence is needed in the community
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Providence, RI) in January 2015.
After the job was posted online, I applied using our internal database. I was informed that a phone screen would be set up. After the initial phone screen, I completed a second phone interview with the senior manager. This discussed my past experience with the organization, and was an opporunity to learn more about the job requirements. From there, I was selected for an in person interview with the senior manager and two other employees.
