Change.org Launches Jobs for Change
Posted by Allison Fine on May 15, 2009
My first thought was, “Hmmm, do we need another job bank?” But then I read Ben’s message further (always good to read the whole email, right?) and saw that what the Change.org folks are doing is fundamentally different from other efforts.
Here’s the key: “We’ve created the site in partnership with more than a dozen nonprofits, including Young Nonprofit Professionals Network, AmeriCorps Alums, Echoing Green, Network for Good, and Encore Careers. Among other things we’ve hired a team of career advisors to help people find and advance a career in social change – whether that’s in the nonprofit, government, or social enterprise sectors – and are hoping to serve as a gateway for people looking to enter the sector.”
The bottom line is that this is an effort to not only share great job opening using the social networks that Change.org is building, but also offer people-to-people help for folks looking for careers in the social sector. All good stuff.
I signed up as an ambassador for the program here, take a peek.
