As a result of some restructuring, I learned this AM that I'm no longer needed at my current employer. For various reasons, this is not as devastating as it might be for many, not the least being that I'm receiving a quite generous severance payment.
So, the extraordinary thing is that I find myself improbably unencumbered by a 9-5 job during this very important election season, with enough cash resources that for a few months I can afford to work for considerably less than might otherwise be the case.
The thing is, as in the past, I cannot figure out how one goes about getting hired to work on a campaign. There seems to be an unwritten rule that campaigns simply do NOT advertise for employees the way that any other corporation that needs employees advertises for employees. I'm guessing that this is because they prefer to channel people into volunteering. Whatever. I'm not looking to stuff envelopes, I'm looking to earn my keep applying my considerable and varied skillset wherever it is of high value.
So ... What's the secret? Do you just email a resume to the contact info? Or what? (It seems ludicrous to me that they make it this hard ...) And no, there's nothing after the jump.
