Embark on Your Impact Journey!
Are you at a crossroads in your professional life? Perhaps you’re looking for more purpose, more impact, and more fulfillment in your career. The world is changing, and with it comes an opportunity to be a part of something greater than yourself. A career in impact could be your chance to make a tangible difference in the world while aligning with your strengths, values, and aspirations.
If that’s the case, then the Impact Job Fair by ChangeNOW on October 12th is where you need to be!
As we approach the Impact Job Fair let the stories and the messages from the session ‘Preparing for a Career in Impact’ at ChangeNOW 2023 inspire you to begin your own journey in the world of impact.
You have what it takes
Feeling unprepared for a career in the world of impact? You’re not alone.
Surprisingly, a survey after our previous job fair revealed that 25 percent of applicants hesitated to embark on their impact journey due to perceived lack of training. But here’s the secret Rose-May Lucotte, our Chief Operations Officer at ChangeNOW, wants you to know: “Hard skills aren’t the primary entry ticket to this realm. In fact, it’s the soft skills—like passion and dedication—that truly pave the way for growth and transformation on your path”.
Kristy Drutman, Co-Founder of the Green Jobs Board, agreed. She knows the incredible power of adaptability, passion, and curiosity as the foundational stones of a fulfilling impact career. “We’re looking for people who can adapt, who have passion, and who ask questions,” she said. It doesn’t matter if you’re not super technical; having these qualities can open doors to places that want to make a difference.
However, the Impact Job Fair also provides a unique opportunity to discover how to acquire those essential hard skills. Many organizations will be present to guide you on your journey, offering programs that bridge the gap between your soft skills and the technical expertise required in various impact fields.
Organizations such as On Purpose, Ticket for Change, Les Pépites Vertes, MakeSense, and others, can help you develop the concrete skills needed for a career in impact. These organizations understand that while soft skills are vital, technical knowledge is equally important. They offer insights, resources, training programs, and inspiration empowering you to find your place in the ecological transition whether that be by changing jobs or changing things at your workplace.
Additionally, if you’re looking for more in-depth training, they will be there too: Ecole Polytechnique Executive Education, INCO, l’IÉSEG, and EMMIE.
Impact's Three Pillars
Angel Prieto, Haut Fonctionnaire of Pour un réveil écologique, lays down the blueprint for every aspiring impact architect: it’s all about the head, the heart, and the body. With understanding (the head), purpose (the heart), and potential (the body), you hold the keys to stepping into your role as a change leader.
“We can all become those leaders of change that we need.” – Angel Prieto, Haut Fonctionnaire, Pour un réveil écologique
