Social Impact Job Search Boot Camp

May 21, 2022 | Interactive Workshop

If you’re looking for a more fulfilling job and need help actually making it happen, this virtual bootcamp is for you.

Are you:

  • Feeling stuck in your current job?
  • Unsure what direction to take your career?
  • Wanting to be doing more meaningful work that makes a greater impact in the world?
  • Need to develop a strong personal brand so you can effectively communicate your value?
  • Tired of sending out resume after resume and not hearing back from anyone (and having no clue why)?
  • Wanting to know how to access the hidden job market and get interviews with companies you’d love to work for?
If you answered yes to one (or possibly all) of these questions, we’ve developed this Social Impact Job Search Boot Camp to help you develop the key assets for your job search.

In this immersive and interactive 3 hour online training, Jenn Lishansky – Chief Career Coach at Be Social Change – takes all of the best strategies and advice from years of educating, coaching, and advising thousands of social impact professionals, to show you exactly how to find a fulfilling job at a socially-conscious company, innovative nonprofit, or within corporate social responsibility.

Actually make progress in your job search in this bootcamp by:
  • Developing your personal mission statement to orient your career behind
  • Understanding how to create a strong personal brand and communicate it, including writing and practicing an elevator pitch that attracts opportunities, crafting essential career stories, and practicing sharing them
  • Practicing how to activate your network to tap into the hidden job market
  • Gaining insight into the elements of a stellar resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile
  • Strengthening the mindset needed to successfully navigate the job search
You’ll also gain a supportive network of fellow job-searchers – a community to gain peer support, advice, and mentorship through engaging exercises and activities throughout the experience.

It would likely be helpful regardless of where you are on your career path. It’s a wonderful way to reflect and create action steps for yourself, whether you are trying to change careers or not (though of course perhaps more useful if you are looking to change careers!). I would recommend it to friends across industries as well, particularly anyone who feels caught in the grind of work they do not find fulfilling.

– Emma (gained a job in CSR)

To definitely do it because it will give you the skills to actually make the change, but also fully participate and have an open mind. Know that you will come out feeling motivated and wanting to take action. So take it!

– C (gained a job at the International Rescue Committee)

It is a wise use of your time and money and meets each individual on where they are in their career or life journey. The bootcamp offers something for everyone and is a great opportunity to learn more about yourself.
