Mission Driven: Moving from Profit to Purpose aims to help the jobseeker — whether a student, a mid-career professional or a retiring Baby Boomer — take advantage of the many career opportunities burgeoning in the non-profit sector by answering these questions and more:
• Is now the right time for me to transition into the nonprofit sector?
• Will my skills transfer to the nonprofit sector?
• How do I even begin to move from the corporate to nonprofit sector?
The nonprofit sector is changing to accommodate the enormous richness of experience all of these individuals can bring with them. This book endeavors to help each of them find their place in the new nonprofit sector.
Very interesting point of view about the business world. Very easy to listen. I enjoyed very much the narration.Lylian, Audible Reviewer, 8/13/17
