Social Impact Jobs
A new year marks new opportunities to bring purpose to your career and life. My team and I have been discussing articles like "Five Lessons from World Changers" by John Coleman that declare the need for more purpose-driven individuals to address challenges facing the world. Coleman's Passion & Purpose survey found that one of the top three reasons graduate students chose a workplace was the "opportunity to impact the world." This is exciting to hear.
If you are looking for a workplace that aligns with your purpose, take a look below. This month’s social impact job list includes exciting global opportunities from an array of organizations that I think drive positive change into the world, including two positions within Echoing Green's Fellowship and Alumni Team.
