  1. My curated #LetLuce social impact job blog is my way of giving back and helping people who are unemployed.
  2. I believe the world needs changemakers now more than ever.
  3. Life is too short to suffer in a job you hate.
  4. Everyone should find their “Occupassion,” a job they love that gives them meaning and purpose.
  5. Our world needs more companies and Benefit Corporations (B Corps) like Patagonia and Athleta that generate profits while positively impacting people and our planet. We need to think differently and more sustainably.

Job Posting Strategy: I only feature recent job postings. I prefer to link to an organization’s website rather than search engines. I only include jobs that excited and delight me. I don’t post jobs from companies that I know are toxic. My job list is focused on jobs primarily in California since I know the philanthropic landscape in my home state best.
