Tess Srebro, VolunteerMatch’s Lead Generation and Marketing Associate
The following post is by Tess Srebro, VolunteerMatch’s newest employee. Please join us in welcoming Tess to the team!
When fantasizing about my dream job, I pinpointed a few non-negotiable qualities it would possess.
First, I needed a nonprofit. After spending two years earning a Master’s of Nonprofit Leadership at Seattle University, that was a given. But it couldn’t be just any nonprofit – I sought one whose mission was centered around technology. I believe there’s so much untapped potential for technology to contribute to social good. VolunteerMatch uses technology to connect good people and good causes. Check.
Second, I needed to write. A love of language has been a core part of me throughout my life. I discovered that through nonprofit marketing, I could put this love to a professional use while having an impact. VolunteerMatch was seeking a Marketing Associate. Check.
Finally, I needed to trust in the organization. I value efficiency, accountability and openness. VolunteerMatch embodies these qualities, while being extremely successful at what it does. Aaaaand check.
I feel incredibly lucky, honored, and most of all excited to join the VolunteerMatch team in this “dream job”. As Lead Generation and Marketing Associate, I’ll be supporting companies in their volunteer engagement efforts. I admire companies that give back to their communities and encourage their employees to do the same.
