What I liked
I loved the individuality this job allowed. While everyone is technically doing the same thing, there is tons of room for creativity and for finding out what system works best for you to be an effective canvasser. Most of the time you are outside either by yourself or with one other person, and this allows for a certain flexibility that most other jobs cannot offer. Additionally, my experiences with my fellow coworkers and employers were all outstanding, and I truly feel like I made lasting, lifelong friends at this job. I also really enjoyed seeing direct impact from my work - leaving at the end of the summer and seeing how many letters to representatives, members, and dollars I had raised made me feel like I had made a difference and helped me acknowledge the importance of the work I had been doing.
