Layoffs are not something anyone wants to go through but maybe you’ve been laid-off from a job that wasn’t all that fulfilling. Perhaps you’re ready to make a living AND make a difference. If that’s the case, don’t miss Making a Living today. I’ll be joined by Laura Gassner Otting, author of "Change Your Career: Transitioning to the Nonprofit Sector."
Having served as a Presidential appointee for the White House Office of National Service, Laura knows what it takes to build a new career in the nonprofit sector. And it’s a growing sector of the economy given President Obama’s American Recovery and Investment Act. Laura recommends sites like GivingUSA to learn more about the investments being made in education and the arts and the career opportunities in those areas. If you’re in between jobs, Laura recommends volunteering as a way not only to expand your network but continue building your resume.
For more on how you can capitalize from a layoff by reinventing your career in the nonprofit sector, tune into Making a Living, today at 4pm EST!
