Fundraiser Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Fundraiser?

Fundraiser in Oakland:
"Lives Or Dies On Your Shoulders."
Pros: My job is relatively calm and boring as most of my time is spent searching for grants or attending events where I drink with high powered politicians and solicit donations.
Cons: It's a pretty laid back job except if for the part that if I fail, the company fails with me. There's a drastic amount of pressure to succeed when the budget gets tight and everyone's job is at risk if you aren't successful when it counts.
