Then we want you on our team!

What's Your Impact (WYI) is an environmental awareness group whose main goal is to inform people about global warming and what they can do about it as individuals.

Maybe you know the best stores where you can buy local or you're a veteran carpooler with advice to give or even a guru on saving electricity... Whatever your green tips and tricks are, you can help people in your area who are looking to do the same by blogging about your everyday successes! Our blog is a tool to connect people around the world and provide them the information they need to fight climate change.

If you like spreading the news on how people can take small steps that will have a huge impact in the fight against climate change, we want to talk to you!

Job Description:

  • Research, write, edit and help with layout for content.
  • Write articles in a conversational style which will engage readers.
  • Share your ideas, respond to comments + encourage the discussion in person as well as on our blog, Twitter, and Facebook.
  • Include WYI's tips and overall message of action against climate change in each of your articles.
  • Article topics include: buying local, green fashion, green beauty, organic food, organic gardening, climate change news, green tech, carpooling, public transit, policy and government initiatives.

Job Requirements:

  • Proven ability in researching, writing, proofreading, and editing.
  • Excellent skill in creating engaging content with a simple conversational style, staying informative but not verbose.
  • Past experience producing content for the web, specifically writing content with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in mind would be an asset.
  • Strong desire in helping those that want to know how to concretely take action in the fight against climate change.
  • Act as an ambassador for WYI to spread the word that everyone can make a difference and together our small changes will have a huge impact in the fight against climate change.
