Of course there are many different people who do many different kinds of jobs in the work against cancer.
There are those who do medically related and research related jobs, of course, but there are also jobs involving office work, public relations, advocacy, etc.
In fact many of those jobs involve the very same kinds of work that goes on in virtually any standard business office we might think of.
I recently came across the American Cancer Society's jobs available page (linked below), which advertises positions currently available with the ACS, and which is searchable by type of job an applicant may desire.
I thought it was instructive to look through the listings to see just what kinds of jobs were available right now with the ACS, not only out of curiosity, but also to get an idea of just how many different ways it's possible to work against cancer, in this case with the country's most noted cancer organization.
That's the reason for this thread, to bring attention to the many different ways it's possible to do cancer-related work.
Using the search engine on their page is pretty simple. Just go to the "Search our Jobs" line. All you have to do is just click on the magnifying glass to the right, without even entering anything in the previous boxes (unless you want to), and that retrieves everything currently available. Or, you can go to the "Category" filter on right side of screen and select among the narrower job groupings which are listed there.
Do what I did, just have some fun searching various kinds of jobs in the ACS search engine, and see what kinds of positions the ACS is offering right now. The position descript
ions are rather full and detailed, telling pretty specifically what the job entails, and the positions seem to be in places all over the U.S.
I was somewhat surprised that the positions listed don't have salary ranges as part of their ads, but evidently the ACS likes to negotiate with applicants from scratch, I guess.
And if it just so happens that you are looking for a job in cancer-related work right now, well, maybe that doesn't apply to most of us, or, maybe somewhat more possible, you may have a friend or relative who might be, let them know the ACS is looking for some good people to hire.
There are surely other cancer-related agencies that have their own "want ads" out there, but the ACS is probably the most prestigious of them.
At the least, this thread and the link below remind us that the work against cancer really is, although we may not always think about
it as such, a business, and one that employs standard business practices, such as advertising for future employees.https://jobs.cancer.org/?_ga=2.79910039.1899591398.1565018254-1200337551.1547057252
