Volunteers often land at a new organization only to be told they can work on ‘whatever’ – they’re hardly given any direction. At Planetary C.A.R.E., we adopt a different approach. You’ll take on a role with specific tasks that have a direct connection to our organization’s audiacious goal. Any hey! If you’re not sure what position suites you, please reach out – we’re happy to design a custom role.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who will I work with?
It depends on what team you join. That said, you’ll most likely meet with your department’s project manager and the operational leader, Marianne Wyne, on a regular basis.
What does a typical week look like?
Naturally, it depends. However, let me share with you some sample tasks from an average week (BTW, I’m a project manager on the UX team). I might build flow charts on Monday; write content on Wednesday; and run a design meeting on Friday.
Where do things get done?
Good question! At this point, we’re fully remote so you’ll primarily work virtually in Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Trello
