It's a common conversation starter, with an uncommon response.
"Where do you work?"
"I work for Make-A-Wish."
"Oh wow ... that is so awesome. You must love your job. It must be so rewarding."
And they are right.
Too many people don't love getting up in the morning and going to work. We do. Every day.
Even the toughest, most challenging days typically are fulfilling. Because we know that granting wishes is important, meaningful work that empowers kids with life-threatening medical conditions to keep fighting, brings families closer, and rallies communities to help others.
The Right People
Make-A-Wish rose swiftly to become one of the nation's most well-known and well-respected charities. Much of that success is fueled by our laser-focused commitment to a narrowly tailored mission, and the passionate people who carry it out.
We are always on the lookout for the best and the brightest to fill open positions – people and teams that can advance the Make-A-Wish brand so we can ultimately fulfill our audacious vision: that every eligible child receives a wish.
The Make-A-Wish culture is one fueled and guided by our values. So while experience, skills, and accomplishments are important, we place a higher importance on each hire being the right fit. Whether you have just a few years under your belt, or decades of career experiences to draw from, we look for solid judgment, critical thinking, and the passion and potential to make change happen.
In addition to challenging work and the opportunity to work alongside other talented professionals, Make-A-Wish benefits include numerous personal and professional training programs to help employees continue to grow their portfolio of skills and abilities.
This process starts with our orientation on-boarding and continues through Make-A-Wish University training offerings, conferences and team assessments.
If you would enjoy working in a dynamic environment and are looking for an opportunity to become part of a stellar team of professionals, we invite you to apply today.
We continually seek ways to strengthen our diversity initiatives because individual differences expand and enrich our professional experiences and abilities.
We are an equal opportunity employer. Employment selection and related decisions are made without regard to sex, race, age, disability, religion, national origin, color or any other protected class.
