MANY of us want to do something more meaningful with our working lives but, whether you’re a school leaver, graduate or career switcher, it is often difficult to know where to start.
How do you find a role that matches your skills and your values – one that you can freely feel passionate about?
That’s where The Ethical Careers Guide comes in.
Clearly written and easy to use, this practical and inspirational book acts as a stepping stone, helping the reader identify what motivates them and sharing a wealth of information on the many different roles and ethical organisations out there, from charities and social enterprises to for-profit companies.
There’s practical advice on how to get job-ready, recommendations on where to start your search, the lowdown on effective volunteering, and tips for becoming an “intrapreneur”.
From architects to care workers, farmers to fashion designers, you’ll also meet lots of inspiring people along the way who have “been there and done it” – giving their advice on finding rewarding careers and sharing the mistakes they’ve learned from along the way.
Written by Paul Allen, The Ethical Careers Guide is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to make a positive difference to their working lives.
