I worked at Organizing for America (Less than a year)
In this role I was able to interact one on one with thousands for customers.
The limited term of the engagement. I would have liked to begin earlier. In essence I wish I had the chance to work harder.
Advice to Management
Keep expectations higher than thought possible and to continue to achieve those kinds of results
I received an email from the area field organizer regarding working for the Obama 2012 Campaign as an organizing fellow. The "interview" was more like a pitch to me convincing me I should intern (volunteer) for the campaign. It included a very vague description of what an organizing fellow would do. I then had the option expressing continued interest or declining. When I said I would like to work as a fellow, I was asked if I knew anyone else who would be interested as well- more of recruiting pitch for the program than an interview.
