A brave new world

Here’s a quick note to share some big news. I am leaving my job at Netcentric Campaigns, and am on the hunt for new adventures (after I take a short break to reset my brain and go to Netsquared)!

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?

She said there are tons of volunteer opportunities, many options to choose from, with variable time commitments, and that it was really exciting to be involved with a national campaign.

    She also said that the reason you don’t see Edwards posters in the windows any more is that they violated the Southern Village covenants!

  2. Have you considered M+RSS? I’ve been tracking them for a while, and they look like a good firm with a great client list. They have several offices (NYC
