Jobs With PennPIRG 

Think America can do better? We do.

If you are ready to dig in and start solving the problems that confront our country, consider a job with PennPIRG and the state PIRGs.

We hire driven, talented, dedicated people and ask them to give their all. A job with PennPIRG offers you in-depth training on how to get things done, a ton of responsibility starting on day one, and the chance to help solve America’s problems.

You can get more people out to vote or reduce the role of corporate money in our politics. You can help connect our country with a network of high-speed trains. You can help us get smarter about how we produce and consume energy, so that we reduce our dependence on foreign oil. You can make sure consumers won’t have to worry about the safety of the products we buy or the food we eat.

As part of U.S. PIRG, the national federation of state PIRGs, applicants for a position with PennPIRG are also eligible for positions with other state PIRGs in our network. At our online jobs center you can find out more about all our positions including: 

SUMMER JOBS

Are you ready to help build the grassroots power it takes to stand up to special interests and give the public a voice? For years, PennPIRG has won real victories to protect our democracy, our health and safety, and our financial wellbeing. Yet we still face enormous challenges, from a flood of big money in our democracy, to hidden genetically modified ingredients in the food we eat. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Fund for the Public Interest, to help us bring together thousands of like-minded students and activists to work on campaigns to win real progress for the public. We need people like you to go out into communities to talk with citizens about the issues, raise money, and build membership. You will also have the opportunity to work with the media, build coalitions and mobilize community activists. Positions are available in state, as well as in more than 50 offices across the country.
