Today we are proud to announce the launch of Progressive.Work, a site for connecting job seekers with employers fighting for progressive causes.
As the primary season nears its end, the Sanders campaign has required fewer staff members. However, these dedicated campaigners have invaluable experience and have much to offer other progressive campaigns that are just ramping up for 2016, as well as progressive organizations and non-profits. In the past, volunteers from the progressive community have shared Google spreadsheets or other temporary makeshift lists to help connect those recently unemployed with jobs. Revolution Messaging wanted to find a better way.
Progressive.Work gives us a way to more efficiently and effectively play matchmaker between progressive professionals and progressive campaigns and organizations that would benefit from their experience. While inspired by our desire to help our friends coming off the Sanders campaign, Progressive.Work is built to be a permanent solution that we hope will help progressives well beyond 2016.
At Progressive.Work, job-seekers can upload their resumes and provide their cell phone number to access the jobs board. After signing up, job seekers are notified by text message as new jobs in their field are posted.
Do you have a progressive job post to share? We’re inviting companies to submit your job listings and save the time you’d usually spend sorting stacks of resumes and navigating makeshift spreadsheets in search of a qualified prospect. Click here to get started.
