A Curated Social Impact Weekly Job Digest—2/13/15


“If you build it, he will come.” Who can forget this famous quote from the movie Field of Dreams? I think this idea can apply to social impact jobs. I believe that, “If you crave, seek and apply to jobs that are innovative, meaningful and impactful, the more jobs that will be created that are innovative, meaningful and impactful.” The world is changing.
