    I worked at Texas Campaign for the Environment part-time

    Pros

    My colleagues and superiors were always available for me to ask questions and eager to teach me. Every Thursday, there is staff night that allowed me to really get to know more about them. I had a great experience working with TCE, and am eager to come back to possibly pick up a couple of shifts. I believe in the work that the nonprofit does, an would be willing to help out and show support in the future.

    Cons

    The hours are a little unorthodox. It is perfect for people with flexible schedules like college students looking for seasonal jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Under the guidance of my Field Managers and Canvass Director, I learned a lot about environmental issues, lobbying, and oral communication. The skills I learned here helped me to acquire other career opportunities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Campaign for the Environment (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview has 2 phases. The first phase is the actual interview. I was interviewed with staff director for about 15-20 mins and offered to join the observation day. The observation day is the second phase of the interview. It is a great place to learn the environmental issues and gain experiences. The coworkers are very friendly and knowledgable.
