I am a canvassing intern for the summer here at Clean Water Action in Rhode Island. In addition to knocking on doors, I got the opportunity to shadow State Director Johnathan Berard for one day to learn how the organization operates on the policy and lobbying side. It was incredibly informative and fun!
Hi, I'm Hallie Leonard, the office manager for Clean Water Action's Providence office!
Much of my work is administrative, making sure our office runs nice and smooth all year long. However, as Spring time rolled around, I began a career fair marathon to recruit our next great canvassers. I learned an incredible amount.
My first career fair was a bit intimidating. Having no idea what to expect, I put on my professional pants (literally), and headed to Brown University. Brown was followed by Johnson and Wales, followed by UMass Dartmouth, and many others.
