You want more meaningful impact in your career, but you’re stuck on where to start, or you’re wrestling over how to connect your unique skills to an industry with poorly defined career paths.


Even when you feel confident about your direction, jobs in social impact are especially tough to find and even harder to get a foot in the door. When less than half of available jobs are listed publicly, you need strategies no longer served by traditional job hunting.


Come learn a refreshingly fun, step-by-step method to clarify what a meaningful career means to you and how to authentically connect with the right people to help you bring that career to life.
