(Longmont, CO, July 24, 2018) – Switching sectors—or making the change between business, nonprofit and/or government careers—is becoming increasingly popular, yet little data is available about those who have successfully made the switch. How did they go about it? What were the biggest challenges? How about lessons learned? Would they do it again? Would they recommend others give it a go?
interSector Talent, a new resource addressing the talent requirements of nonprofit organizations, private businesses, and social enterprises looking to hire professionals who want to bring their business acumen to bear on social issues, seeks to learn from those who have switched sectors—successfully or otherwise. Data provided by sector switchers will be compiled to provide a current snapshot of sector switching and answer some of the questions outlined above. In addition, those who wish to do so, may express interest in having their story highlighted on interSector Talent’s blog and in the report of this study.
Those who have switched from any sector to any other sector (e.g. for-profit to nonprofit, for-profit to social enterprise, nonprofit to social enterprise, nonprofit to government, etc.) are invited to offer their insights at: https://goo.gl/sWom5M The survey will close on August 15, 2018 and findings will begin to be released in September 2018 at the Social Enterprise World Forum in Edinburgh, Scotland.
