Pensacola Young Professionals
PYP is the organization where people in their early career stages can find a place to belong, build a sense of competence about our community, and feel empowered to influence change in a positive direction. It takes dedicated, motivated individuals working together as a team to serve our members, our sponsors, and our community by planning and executing valuable programming and events.
PYP Leaders are volunteers who give their time, talent, and other resources to elevate PYP and the Pensacola Bay area to the highest level possible.
PYP Members in good standing who are dedicated to personal and professional development and who are passionate about catalyzing positive change in our community. If you are not a member and would like to become one in order to apply, please do so!
Applications are completed online by clicking the link below. Please complete the form and upload your resume by the deadline in order to be considered. Once your application is received, you will be contacted to schedule an in-person, 30-minute peer interview. The interview panel is compromised of PYP Directors, Leaders, and members. The interview is a chance to see if PYP is a good fit for you and if you are a good fit for PYP.
Submit your application by the deadline to be considered for any of our positions. We'll follow up to schedule your peer interview once applications close.
We'll conduct peer interviews with a panel comprised of PYP leaders and members to ask you some behavior-based questions. This is an opportunity for us to get to know you as much as it is for you to get to know us.
Once the panel makes a decision you'll receive a call with the results. If you're offered a position, we invite you to join us at our next board meeting where we'll vote to make it official.
The board will vote to accept your nomination to our team. While we invite you to join us, you'll be asked to step out of the room while we discuss and vote. After this meeting, we'll reach out with next steps on your transition. We can't wait to get started with you!
We open leadership applications when there are vacancies or during our annual leadership application process in January/February.
