Our team spans a wide range of expertise and experiences. We are writers, organizers, researchers, strategists and campaign managers. And on each of our projects, we often partner with designers, online strategists, publicists and evaluation experts. All of us bring a common passion for making the world a better place. What would you bring?

As our business grows we are seeking to expand our pool of independent contractors who can help as we develop and execute our public engagement campaigns:
Researchers: Research and landscape analyses drive each of our projects, and we often need researchers who can go deep into specific topics, analyzing the literature and interviewing experts, to uncover key findings needed to develop the best strategies. Accordingly, we're always on the lookout for people with experience moving quickly through significant stores of information to find answers to key research questions.
Graphic design: From teaching material and fundraising collateral to invitations and PowerPoint presentations, our engagements often require design expertise. While we tackle much of it in-house, we often add designer talent for quick projects or multi-month engagements.
Digital and social media strategy/web design: We are always looking for professionals who can augment our campaign strategy offerings with specific expertise reaching and activating audiences with digital tools, from basic design to app development.
Writing/editing: Many of our engagements involve long form writing, from handbooks and curriculum guides to content rich websites and media materials. We’re all writers and editors here, but are always looking for others to bring additional talents.
Outreach and partner development: Partner groups play key roles in many of our campaigns, providing valuable counsel and credibility and extending our clients' reach and impact. Again, much of this work is done in-house here at ProSocial, but there are projects where we expand that functionality with outreach experts.
Grantwriting: A number of our nonprofit partners and clients depend on public and private grants to help them achieve their mission, and there are times we help identify and pursue grant funding to grow and sustain their campaigns. We're experienced grant writers, but also contract with others when needed.
We want to hear from you! If any of these are of interest to you or someone you know, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org clarifying which area is of interest to you and including detail on specific and relevant areas of experience and expertise (e.g. “researcher with particular depth of knowledge in women’s issues” or “outreach expert with significant relationships in international aid arena”). Include your resume/portfolio, a list of clients and your hourly rate.
ProSocial internships are not your typical "make copies and get coffee" internship experience. Our interns dive head-first into the research, strategy and campaign management, working with us and alongside nonprofits, corporations, media makers and others, playing an integral in the day-to-day efforts of our small and dedicated team. A ProSocial intern is a dependable team player, but also enjoys taking a project and running with it. He or she is constantly thinking, always asking questions, challenging us to think more deeply about how the work we do can help make the world a better place.
