From Good Intention to Action, From Action to Career: Exploring Social-Impact Opportunities

Steven Joiner, Career Consultant and author of The Idealist Guide to Nonprofit Careers for Sector Switchers

As more and more professionals are looking for way to align their passions with their careers, paid social-impact opportunities are becoming more and more competitive. To make applications more appealing to employers, this seminar takes a holistic view of the career search by helping participants to see themselves--and their career path--in a more complex and complete way. Attendees are introduced to several self-assessment tools that will help them both to see their career search as a part of their complete person as well as to articulate their experiences, skills, values, and priorities in a compelling way. Participants will also explore the "nuts and bolts" of the nonprofit world in order to gain a larger view of this vital social-impact sector. Finally, attendees will explore ways to create intentional opportunities with organizations by exploring the synergy between their self and sector understanding.
