Help Wanted

Lori, Senior Legal Counsel

Every time I post photos of PETA demonstrations, I get emails from people asking about working here. So, I thought I’d post some general info in case others are wondering about it as well.

Our International Grassroots Campaigns department recently put together a cool little feature about what it’s like to work in that part of the organization, so if you’re a front lines kind of person, check that out here. But if being out on the street protesting isn’t your thing, don’t fret. Believe it or not, that’s not what most of us here at PETA do every day!

Kelly, Finance Manager

PETA is a large, multi-faceted organization, so we’ve got openings ranging from clerical jobs to investigators to writers and everything in between. It really is a great feeling to wake up every morning and go to work for an organization you believe in, where you are constantly surrounded by incredibly smart, talented, friendly, funny, and dedicated coworkers. One of my favorite things about this place is that no matter how serious the issue is that we’re working on, we still always try to have fun. Oh, and bagels with tofutti cream cheese on Tuesday mornings are pretty cool too.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work here or what qualifications we look for in prospective employees, give this page a peek, then send in your résumé.

And after you get hired, stop by my desk to say hi!

    I am an international PETA donor member from Malaysia and i am interested to apply for intern. But too bad US is too far from where i live and my mother is not agreeing me for the internship application. She has Osteoporosis and she is worry that i won’t care about my family anymore.. I had tried to convince her that it’s not that i don’t love my family anymore i just want to gain more experience for working at overseas but then she changes her mind and decided for not care about me anymore. She said”Just do what you like but don’t bother the family!”.. Sigh sometimes i just wish that i am someone else..

    kitty I agree with Mike and Judith. And would like to add I’m sure you would like to be a staff writer right now but your youth is not really a hindrance. It is your exciting advantage. By starting to write now you won’t have to look back some day and say “I wish I had…” animalfriend Your posts are VERY much appreciated and VERY helpful!

    Halo snipe Based on your posts I don’t think you’re much of an expert on ‘smart’. Kitty Just get started writing and submitting letters to papers etc. Write an oped and send it in. You have the desirethat’s the most important thing.

    I wish I could be a staff writer but I’m quite young so I don’t have any professional publications in newspapers or anywhere sadly.
