A lot of friends and colleagues have suggested that I should go back to freelance consulting, but I’m leaning more toward an organizational setting where I can be a part of a supportive and stable community. Right now, I could be convinced to do either if it was for the right opportunity.
So what would make an opportunity “right” for me? I hope to spend more time contemplating this to ensure that I land in the right place, but here’s what I know I need:
- Collaborative organizational structure supported by democratic management.
- Openness to innovation at the strategic and technological levels.
- Ability to telecommute and/or be based in central North Carolina. Frequent travel is fine, however.
- Passion for what I’m doing. There are many, many things I care deeply and get excited about including… making government more democratic, ending the war, promoting women’s rights and leadership, getting progressives and/or bloggers involved in local government, electing non-Republicans, amplifying otherwise-excluded voices… of course the list could go on and on.
I am watching NOI jobs, nonprofit tech jobs, and Craig’s List, and I have a promising job interview (!) tomorrow. But I also want to know what else might be out there in the wide world of Advocacy 2.0. There is also this little campaign nearby, should I be thinking about that?
