Landing a Job in Social Impact

Date: 11/03/2021

Time: 12:30pm
Where: LMHQ, Virtual,

According to the Center for Social Impact Strategy at the University of Pennsylvania, 90% of millennials say that when choosing between two brands of equal quality and price, they will opt for a cause-branded product, and 51% of global consumers will pay extra for products and services committed to positive social and environmental impact. It’s clear that the social impact sector is ripe for growth — and there’s no time like the present to get involved. 
In this workshop, Career Coach and Talent Development Consultant Emily Lamia showed participants how to understand what social impact means to them and gain clarity on the career path options within the social impact sector that most excited them. 
Over the course of an hour, particiants discovered and clarified their interests and skills in order to identify potential career path options in the social impact sector, engaged in specific exercises to help themselves map out various career path options and gained practical tools and resources to uncover the hidden job market in the social impact sector.
