Available Positions with Cor & Our Partners – 2017
Every election, we run roughly a dozen campaigns for which field support is required, and we are looking to augment our field team. Individuals in this role must have a passion for connecting with voters and promoting a candidate or cause.

As the individual grows, they will have the opportunity to develop field strategies for our campaigns.
Since our founding in 2009, one of Cor’s biggest strengths has been our ability to develop highly-effective messaging for our clients, and then communicate that message consistently and convincingly on every available platform. We are looking to bring in someone with communications skills who we can train to ultimately run this department. To start, this individual would be tasked with utilizing available messaging to generate content such as press releases, emails, call scripts, social media posts, and responses to queries and questionnaires. They will also be tasked with maintaining press lists and developing relationships with media. In addition, they will actively support our clients’ PR and communications needs, both candidates and organizations. Ultimately, as this individual proves themselves capable, they will be tasked with developing high-level talking points and messaging for clients.
