Social Impact Jobs November 2013




 

Instead of searching through job opportunities based on a skill we’ve honed or the role we might aspire to, what if we could browse by the impact the work might have? Often we feel defined by the experience depicted on our resumes—what software we know or the number of employees we’ve managed, maybe the amount of money we raised, or the total customers gained under our management. While all that experience tells part of the story of what we might be good at, it doesn’t even start to tell the world what we care about.

Whether your heart tells you to work toward rebuilding storm-torn cities, to increase the life expectancy of children in rural villages, or to be a part of an organization greening your hometown, we encourage you to flip the way you think about your job search. Think about what matters most, the impact you want to have on the world, and then imagine how that goal might intersect with your career trajectory.
