There are regular jobs and then there are world changing jobs. In this busy, hustle and bustle world, sometimes it’s hard enough to remember to pay the electric bill let alone think about what drives you. All you know is that what you’re currently doing in order to pay said electric bill doesn’t really light your fire. Can you be blamed? You’re a passionate and creative person who is not afraid to do whatever it takes to fix the mess that is planet Earth. You want to use your superpowers to change the world and have fun while doing it.
Fortunately, One Green Planet is hiring! We’re the largest independent publishing platform focused on sustainable food, animal/environmental protection, and cruelty-free/green living. If that’s not enough, we also just happen to be the biggest vegan/plant-based food and recipe site on the Internet and we want you to be a part of the deliciousness.
By being part of our team you not only get to make a difference in the world by actively pursuing your passions, you also get to work in a crazy fun, dog-friendly office located in New York City. Other benefits include healthcare, fun times and lots of Goji belly-rubs! Just check out our Instagram feed!
Think you have what it takes? Here are four signs that you’re probably right.
1. You’re the friend who is constantly sharing baby elephant videos from (reputable) wildlife sanctuaries along with this emoji :-P
You’re also a fan of puppies, sloths, cats, orangutans, rhinos, tigers, cows, chickens, pigs, and everything in between. You’re obsessed with their cuteness, their conservation, and all of the news associated with them. Your Facebook timeline is filled with petitions to end marine captivity, stories of rescued farm animals, and a whole slew of cute sloth videos. No need to confirm that you’re the animal obsessed on in the group, your “I Heart Animals” coffee mug pretty much sums it up.
2. You’re the Queen B of social media, putting out the fiercest tweets and generally slaying the social game.
And Instagram … and Facebook … and Tumblr. Basically, you’re a social media savvy guru with the ability to track what’s trending and drive it. Your experience makes you awesome at spreading the word to the masses while your passions make you want to spread the word that’s meaningful to you. Face it, you’d rather put out messages about ecology, animals, plant-based food, and vegan health than anything else. #SocialMediaNinjaAndProudOfIt
3. You keep up with vegan food bloggers like some people keep up with the Kardashians.
If you’re obsessed with the planet of plant-based food blogs, latest cooking trends (aquafaba, anyone?), newest techniques (seriously, can you believe you can make vegan meringue out of chickpea brine?) and pretty much all things yum (vegan…meringue…helloooo), then:
3. You think talk is cheap and images are worth 1,000 words.
Visual people like you who picture exactly how to take an issue and create a super sweet graphic, animation or video about it are the ones who end up on Ellen talking about the backstory for their dental visit that went viral. You’re just that awesome of an illustrator/graphic designer/video producer, especially once the laughing gas lifts.
