Environment Colorado Advocate
Environment Colorado

Job submitted on 11/02/2012

Whether it's exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking Dolores Canyon, or enjoying a special place closer to home, Colorado's natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened. That's where we come in.

Environment Colorado is a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy organization. Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for Colorado's environment.

Last year, Environment Colorado helped close two of Colorado's oldest, dirtiest coal-fired power plants, keeping 70,000 pounds of toxic emissions out of the air.

Thanks to a bill Environment Colorado helped write in 2010, Colorado will get 30% of its energy from clean, renewable sources by 2020.

Our hard-hitting research shows the battle for Colorado's environment is still raging.

In March, we released a report that shows polluters dumped 250,000 pounds of chemicals into the South Platte River alone.

As we all are witnessing, Colorado has already seen the extreme weather effects of climate change. This year more than 1,200 wildfires burned over 230,000 acres within the state.

Job Description

That's where you come in. You are an experienced organizer who is ready to go where the fight is. You know that it takes state-wide grassroots action to go toe-to-toe with the biggest polluters of our day and win. You know that this battle isn't just for our state. You know Colorado environmental policy is a proving ground for national environmental policy, and we can continue to set the standard for what's possible in America. And you know that since we are part of the Environment America federation of state-based environment groups with offices in Denver and Washington, D.C., we are just the group to do it.

Key Responsibilities:

Program development: You'll identify the biggest environmental problems in Colorado, develop solutions, pick a vehicle to enact your solutions, and the strategy it will take to win.

Communications: You'll craft compelling messages for a wide variety of audiences, develop materials from a campaign slogan to fact sheets, editorials and news releases to website content and email alerts.

Media: You'll focus state, and at times national, media attention on our campaigns to create momentum, educate citizens and decision makers and build credibility. You'll build relationships with key people in the media, like reporters, editors and publishers.

Building Coalitions: You'll reach across isles and outside of the traditional environmental community to build wide-based public support to influence decision makers. You'll work with celebrities, VIPs and all of the usual suspects.

Organizing the Field: You'll organize resources to gain access and generate political pressure on decision-makers. You'll work with our field staff, internet team, members and volunteers to mobilize activists ready to fight for Colorado.

Fundraising: You'll build lasting relationships in the funder community and build resources for your work with foundations and major donors.

Location
Denver, Colorado

Qualifications
You are committed to defending the environment here in Colorado, and building the public support it takes in the long term to be ready for whatever tomorrow may bring. You are ambitious, a leader and have a track-record of accomplishment. You have at least 2 years of post-college professional experience, such as environmental advocacy, grassroots organizing, investigative journalism, law school, or post-graduation legal work. If you have more experience, we have more responsibility in store, and you are encouraged to apply.

Salary & Benefits
Salary for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate possesses. We offer a competitive benefits package including health care, 401(k), educational loan assistance, and paid vacation and sick days. Opportunities for advancement, travel and additional training are available.

Well then read no further – that is NOT who we are looking for!
 
Catapult (www.catapultpr-ir.com) is an authentic, strategic and results-driven public and investor relations agency focused on exceeding its clients’ expectations every day.

We are looking for the right person to join our team as an “account coordinator-PLUS.” This position will work closely with our senior director of client accounts and provide support to all account team members as necessary.
 
Our definition, requirements and specific duties for this position are a little different than most and include the following:
 
•    Learn: Be ready and willing to learn each and every day. We work in a fast-paced environment where constant learning of new information not only is necessary, it is expected. You will be asked to seek out information and conduct research and in turn share results in a clear and concise manner.

•    Client reporting: You will assist in managing and organizing client results and reports.

•    Work Hard: Our normal office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. – but what is normal? We are available to clients 24 X 7 X 365. And yes, we take calls from clients and fellow team members when needed at 3 a.m.!

•    Pick up the phone!: Pitching editors, gathering editorial calendars or exploring story ideas are critical things we do each and every day to keep our clients front and center with the key influencers that matter most. It is important to be able to interact fluidly and easily with any type of reporter, and to uncover upcoming editorial opportunities to help us stay in front of important deadlines and get results for our clients.

•         Show Initiative: Go the extra mile. If we ask you to organize client results go a step beyond.

We believe in helping our employees grow and have fun doing it so they want to keep “Catapulting” with us through the years. In fact, our average employee tenure is six years! That’s pretty awesome.

People like working with us for a reason.

Photojournalist
The Sheridan Wyoming Press
Sheridan, Wyoming

Job submitted on 10/25/2012

PHOTOJOURNALIST

The Sheridan, Wyoming, Press, an innovative and award-winning community daily newspaper in the best part of the state, has an opening for the position of photojournalist.

The successful candidate will have an appreciation and desire to accomplish what the Press does well — report local news. This means a daily diet of news events, sports, working with reporters on stories and also being sent around the town and county to get that one shot that says "wow!" and will be a contest entry. It also means taking photos that are rote and will likely end up on someone's refrigerator or family bible. Group shots. Photos of construction sites; citizens volunteering to enrich the city, its people and environs.

Once settled, we'll encourage our photojournalist to produce a weekly photo essay page(s) that illustrates why we're blessed to live in a community such as Sheridan. The successful photojournalist will have input to how his or her photos are displayed. We have made strides in becoming a more visual newspaper and want this to continue.

We believe that a photojournalist is like a vocalist in a jazz quartet. The photojournalist steps out as a part of the melody, and compliments not only the rhythm of its peers, the song and chorus of our content as well.

The Press is an independent newspaper with family and local ownership and with print and online news delivery platforms. Sheridan is a thriving community of 18,000 with a college, a lively arts/culture/music scene, a busy downtown and many other amenities, including unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities.

Account Coordinator
Catapult PR


Do you like three martini lunches? Enjoy working in public relations because you “like people,” or just “want to write?” Do you call editors and ask – “did you get my news release?”
 
Well then read no further – that is NOT who we are looking for!
 
Catapult (www.catapultpr-ir.com) is an authentic, strategic and results-driven public and investor relations agency focused on exceeding its clients’ expectations every day. Located at the base of the Flatirons in Boulder, Colo. we believe strongly in the mantra of, “word hard – play hard.” We are a specialized, high-tech PR agency that cares not only about our clients, but our employees. That means we like to hire people who are just as passionate about their job and career as the companies we help change the world in which we live.
 
We are looking for the right person to join our team as an “account coordinator-PLUS.” This position will work closely with our senior director of client accounts and provide support to all account team members as necessary.
 
Our definition, requirements and specific duties for this position are a little different than most and include the following:
 
•    Learn: Be ready and willing to learn each and every day. We work in a fast-paced environment where constant learning of new information not only is necessary, it is expected. You will be asked to seek out information and conduct research and in turn share results in a clear and concise manner.

•    Client reporting: You will assist in managing and organizing client results and reports.

•    Work Hard: Our normal office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. – but what is normal? We are available to clients 24 X 7 X 365. And yes, we take calls from clients and fellow team members when needed at 3 a.m.!

•    Be Organized: You will need to be extremely organized and able to conduct research on client opportunities when necessary, organize client results, assist in preparing for client meetings and create presentations and documents as needed. PPT whiz skills a PLUS!

•    Support of social media programs: You will assist the senior director of client accounts in executing social media programs, helping tweet announcements, posting on Facebook and LinkedIn throughout the day.
 
•         Be Willing: We are Agile and ALL make copies and prepare reports for clients! That means if
something needs to be completed we do it regardless of our title. Get your hat boxes ready because we wear a lot of them!

•    Excellent writing skills:  We are a PR firm known for great content, and we expect great writing skills as part of what we each do every single day.  Writing news releases, media advisories or abstracts quickly, concisely and accurately are what our clients expect, and you will help as needed on a daily basis.

•    Pick up the phone!: Pitching editors, gathering editorial calendars or exploring story ideas are critical things we do each and every day to keep our clients front and center with the key influencers that matter most. It is important to be able to interact fluidly and easily with any type of reporter, and to uncover upcoming editorial opportunities to help us stay in front of important deadlines and get results for our clients.

•         Show Initiative: Go the extra mile. If we ask you to organize client results go a step beyond.
 
All this might sound like Catapult is all work and no play. Quite the contrary! We have breakfast together every Thursday, plan quarterly social outings and have great semi-annual events with our families. We believe in helping our employees grow and have fun doing it so they want to keep “Catapulting” with us through the years. In fact, our average employee tenure is six years! That’s pretty awesome. What’s even more fantastic is our client retention rate – many we have work with for more than seven years!
People like working with us for a reason.
 
We offer a complete benefits package, including 100 percent employee paid healthcare, dental and vision care, a matching IRA investment program and a flexible work environment. We even have employees’ kids and dogs join us in the office from time-to-time!

This entry-level position will test everything you’ve learned in college and challenge the opinions you’ve formed since then. You will demonstrate your strong work ethic and flexibility on a daily basis as you learn every nuance of all CIG clients. You will be held to an exceptionally high standard, but the habits you form in this position will benefit you as you move up in this organization and move forward with your promising career.

What We Expect Of You:
•    Dazzling Writing Skills

o    That’s right – the adjective “creative” doesn’t even come close.

Beyond this informal mentoring, every CIG employee is mentored by CIG’s CEO and founder, who will push you to reach higher and achieve more than you think you can.

•    Variety
o    As anyone who has worked in an agency setting can attest, no two days are the same. You might arrive one morning intent on assembling news clippings but be asked to participate in a conference call to address a client’s media crisis. The point is, at CIG you’ll never get bored.

•    Fun
o    Everyone likes to say they have a fun corporate culture, but at CIG it’s true. We play hard because we work hard. Our team’s accomplishments are rewarded through team celebrations, casual outings and an annual retreat.
Job Duties
Responsibilities include:

•    GENERAL
o    Provide administrative and technical communication/marketing support
