A Curated Social Impact Weekly Job Digest—3/13/15

The Importance of Creativity

“What is the economic impact of creativity? Otis College of Art and Design President Samuel Hoi set out to answer this question and this week the 8th annual Otis Report on the Creative Economy was released with a documentary film, “The State of Creativity”. The report uses data to make the case for the importance of the creative industries. For example, in the L.A. region the output of the creative industry totaled $140 billion and generated 695,100 jobs. The statewide report will be released April 15 in Sacramento. The Otis Report can leave no doubt that creativity is a powerful economic driver both regionally and statewide. Now more than ever, it is critical that leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors work together to develop and sustain the talent pipeline that feeds the creative economy of our region.” Excerpt from www.otis.edu. So do your part. Go to a museum, concert, film or play. Visit a cultural institution and take an art class. However most importantly be an advocate for arts so we can continue to nurture the generation of creators and innovators in CA.

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.

A Curated Social Impact Weekly Job Digest—2/6/15


How easy is it to move between corporate social responsibility and the nonprofit sector? Not easy. Do companies value nonprofit experience when hiring CSR positions? Not really. Doesn’t being an ED of a nonprofit make you a better grantmaker? Yes, but I know because I am in both fields. I get questions all the time about CSR and nonprofits. My advice, think about what you really want to do. If you want a job in CSR or corporate philanthropy get an MBA or JD. If you want to run a nonprofit get an MPP, MPA, MBA or JD (or any other graduate degree). You can jump tracks, but not easily and it’s easier to go from CSR to nonprofits, than it is to go from nonprofits to CSR.

Welcome to the first issue of #LetLuce a weekly social impact job blog that highlights creative, cool and meaningful job opportunities. This is by no means a scientific process. This is my own personal curated list of interesting opportunities in #CSR, #philanthropy, #foundation, #social #innovation and the #arts that spark the imagination and make us think of what is possible. Want to change the world? How about change your life? We should all have an “OccuPassion.” So take a look, send to a friend and e-mail me any listings worthy of mention.
