Think America can do better? We do.

If you are ready to dig in and start solving the problems that confront our country, consider a job with CALPIRG and the state PIRGs.

We hire driven, talented, dedicated people and ask them to give their all. A job with CALPIRG offers you in-depth training on how to get things done, a ton of responsibility starting on day one, and the chance to help solve America’s problems.

You can get more people out to vote or reduce the role of corporate money in our politics. You can help connect our country with a network of high-speed trains. You can help us get smarter about how we produce and consume energy, so that we reduce our dependence on foreign oil. You can make sure consumers won’t have to worry about the safety of the products we buy or the food we eat.

As part of U.S. PIRG, the national federation of state PIRGs, applicants for a position with CALPIRG are also eligible for positions with other state PIRGs in our network. At our online jobs center you can find out more about all our positions including:
