Wanted: Wired Political Organizers
The CauseWired resume is a good one to have these days: the New Organizing Institute, formed to train online organizers to work on campaigns, reports a huge supply-demand imbalance in the market for people who know how to use online tools to help candidates and causes:
We are seeking to fill an urgent need among progressive campaigns and organizations. Right now, they’re hitting a brick wall when trying to fill new online organizer or Internet director positions. A network of talented, sophisticated and experienced operatives simply does not exist in the field of online organizing the way it does in the established areas of field organizing, fundraising or campaign management.
