Environmental Programs Coordinator (Current Employee), Springfield, IL – December 12, 2014
The American Lung Association Environmental Team is a great team to work with. The work environment is very friendly. I am never scared to ask questions about a project. Currently I work with data collection and analysis for multiple projects. The hardest part of the job is during grant proposals and reporting. As a non-profit, all of our funds are acquired through grants. So during parts of the year we have to complete multiple projects at the same time. I also find this as one of the more enjoyable parts because I like to keep busy.
Development & Health Promotions Coordinator (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – October 30, 2014
Pros: your own office
Cons: 30 min lunch
You have to work closely with coworkers but are left to do a lot of independent work. I don't feel I was properly trained to do my job more of secretary work than anything. Disappointing as a college graduate.
Neighborhood Campaign and collect other donations year round.
Volunteer (Current Employee), Mount Sterling, KY – July 29, 2014
This has been a very rewarding job experience! I not only get to meet people in my community, but also feel so grateful about knowing that I may be helping in finding a cure some day for lung disease. The hardest part of this job is getting people to donate. I actually even collect donations in other states besides Kentucky and that feels awesome!
Development Manager (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CA – April 15, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: need a larger volunteer base
Communicating with committees and community the importance of fundraising goals for the mission of saving lives with education on lung health and improving air quality. The management staff is very good and very helpful. The hardest part of this job was goals to exceed pressure and events being close together. I so enjoyed working with my hard working coworkers, knowing that all had many duties to make the events a success. Seeing community members that volunteer their time is very enjoyable.
Internship (Former Employee), Charleston, WV – January 21, 2014
Pros: great people to work with
Cons: since i was an intern i did not get paid and they were not hiring at the time pending my graduation.
I worked there as an Intern while I was in college for 8 months. I was able to answer the phone, assist with projects for the coming year throughout West Virginia. Made outbound calls throughout the state to prepare for Mountain Biking. The people were great to work with. I learned a lot.
