A Curated Social Impact Weekly Job Digest—2/27/15


In one of my first jobs after graduate school my supervisor gave me great advice. She said, “People work with people they like.” Over the years, I’ve definitely found this to be true. You can’t underestimate the power of kindness in the workplace. I try my best to always be polite, grateful and nice. If you want to make the world a better place, you have walk the walk. “Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.” ~Maya Angelou
