How To Get A Great Job & Still Make A Difference

0

Ever felt like you’re working for a soulless corporation that wouldn’t hesitate to give you “the boot” to save a buck? That they don’t really care about you, or give you the respect or wage you deserve? Do you feel like they damage the environment, or maybe that they’re doing more harm than good to society?

These feelings have probably been building up for a long time – making you disconnect from your work to the point where you might almost hope to get fired (just so you’d be free, and forced to find something better).

You need the income from your job, yet you also want out. It’s a tough position to be in.

And, if you don’t know that there’s another option, then it can be depressing.

Luckily, I’m going to introduce you to a growing movement of organizations that are taking a stand against this kind of morally intolerable corporate behavior. They’re looking for people like you, and I’m going to give you the secret to finding them, getting their attention, and getting your dream job with one of them.

These up and coming companies are called…

Benefit Corporations (AKA Purpose-Driven Companies)

So, what’s the main difference between a traditional corporation and a B-Corp?

Well, rather than having a sole purpose of optimizing profit at all costs, purpose-driven companies are serious about sustainability, and exist to optimize good and profit.

They’re the superheroes of the business world, and they put serious energy into empowering their employees, and treating their team, society, and the environment with the respect they each deserve.

(They also like to have a little fun along the way.)

See, companies with world renowned workplaces, like Google, are on the list. Lenders like Kiva, who alleviate poverty by connecting entrepreneurs around the world with loans, are definitely on the list. And organizations like TOMS, who rock the “one for one” model of giving away a pair of shoes to a child with each sale, are also part of the movement.

So, the question is, if you could work for an awe-inspiring company that makes a difference and a profit – like these companies – why would you want to stick with a company that you don’t believe in?

If you think they’re hard to find, or maybe that they wouldn’t hire you, then I beg to differ.

(In fact, I’ve compiled an entire, free list of purpose-driven companies like these.)

And if you want to get a job with one of them, just follow…

The 3 Steps To Getting A Job With A B-Corp

WARNING: Do not spam these companies with un-personalized, traditional resumes and covers letters.

We’ve all done this before – sent out a ton of copies to as many employers as possible – but I can tell you from experience that employers cannot stand this.

And let’s be honest – nothing shows laziness and incompetence more than sending a resume in without a cover letter, or sending a cover letter that has clearly been written in a rush, and sent out to dozens of employers.

If you want your dream job with a purpose-driven company, then it’s time to step up your game. Here’s how:

1. Great Formatting & Grammar

This is the easiest way to make sure you’re not crossed off the list immediately. Take advantage of spell check, and ask a friend to help you proof read it.

2. Online Presence

The Internet isn’t going anywhere, and showing the capability and willingness to authentically stand out online will put you way ahead of the game.

WordPress, Wix, YouTube… it’s never been easier to create a simple online website or page devoted to showcasing your skills, strengths, and passions, and you’ll find that doing so will pay off by helping you land that dream job.

3. Proven Roadmap

– You’re not the first person to try to solve the challenge of finding a job you love, and you won’t be the last.
Take advantage of the wisdom of those who have been there before, and you’ll wind up taking a big shortcut on your journey to your dream job.

So remember, there are plenty of inspiring organizations out there to work for, and lots of proven ways to get their attention.

And if you need a little help along the way, there’s also a free bonus video with a purpose-driven career expert who created an entire list of these purpose-driven companies.

We share three of his biggest tips for getting their attention that you can apply today to get your dream job.
