Introducing Ripple Effect’s Furlough to Fellow Program


Here at Ripple Effect, we’re committed to creating a lasting impact on the health, safety, and prosperity of our communities, and the nation as a whole. We’re all currently in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis that has touched every industry, every company, and every person–no matter who or where you are–and left a lot of people struggling.

Today, we’re excited to announce Ripple Effect’s new “Furlough to Fellow” program, a short-term initiative that we designed for mid-career professionals who have been furloughed or laid off from their primary jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Furlough to Fellow program will bring a small group of professional fellows into Ripple Effect on a short-term basis, during their furloughs, to help them earn income, learn new skills, and support meaningful company initiatives.

Check out this message from Ripple Effect Chief Operating Officer and co-owner, Jennifer Pohlhaus, who introduces the Furlough to Fellow program and explains the company projects and initiatives that fellows can support.



If you have skills in areas ranging from Human Resources to Business Development to Finance and Accounting, and you’ve lost your primary source of income during COVID-19, we welcome you to apply to our Furlough to Fellow program.

Visit our Careers page at rippleeffect.com/careers and apply today. Below are the two fellowship positions we’re hiring for:

Consultant (Furlough to Fellow program): These individuals will be hired on a 1099 basis, meaning selected fellows would be hired as independent contractors to Ripple Effect, on a temporary status through the duration of their projects.

Fellow (Furlough to Fellow program): These individuals will be hired as W-2 employees, meaning selected fellows would be temporary, non-exempt employees of Ripple Effect through the duration of their projects.


We look forward to hearing from you!
