Ok, this is driving me crazy. So I've recently finished college with a BA and now I'm looking for work, but I don't want just any job, I want a job working to help improve the position of Atheists in the US. It's something I'm very passionate about and I would love to pour my energy into it. Naturally I ask myself "Ok, what groups are there that you might like to work for?" I do a little research and come up with a list. FFRF, CFI, AA, AHA, just to name a few. So I've been sending my resume to these groups, telling them how badly I want to work for them, and I hear nothing back. Some of them have "careers" sections on their website, some of them don't. I keep thinking
"They have to hire people! Just look at this website, there has to be somebody who maintains it, or this newsletter they put out, there has to be a team that creates it, or this lawsuit they're filling, there has to be a whole legal team with assistants! Who are these people? How did they end up getting those jobs? And how do I get one of those jobs too?" It's maddening knowing you desperately want to work in a field, but at the same time not knowing how to even get into that field.
