Contrary to popular belief, a career in non-profit is more than just working part-time for little-to-no pay. It’s an industry driven by passion and an appetite to make a difference. So why aren’t more people pursuing careers in the charity sector?
It’s not uncommon to take the first job that promises stability and progression, but many find that their work doesn’t align with their values. Without being made aware of the different opportunities available, people often give in to the fear and remain in a job that doesn’t make them happy.
Maybe they’ve been in their industry for a few years and they’re afraid of a career shift because they have bills to pay. Maybe they’re just afraid of the unknown. Too many people find themselves trapped in the monotony of the corporate 9-to-5 lifestyle, but what if there is something more fulfiling out there? And what if you could find a meaningful career that makes you feel alive and inspired by the work you do?

She explores the different career paths that are available and offers a new perspective that inspires many to build a fulfilling career in non-profit.
