Build Your Impact & Resume with Net Impact Chapters
For college students and professionals passionate about pursuing careers with purpose, the impact space can seem daunting. Impact jobs exist in almost any industry, and yet it is still challenging for many college students and professionals to find the right avenues to lead careers with impact. Net Impact is here to help! Our Chapters provide individuals with the community, experience and connections needed to find meaningful careers with positive social, environmental and economic impact.
1. Join a community of like-minded peers
Whether you’re a student looking to get involved on your campus or a professional eager to build your network, joining or starting a Net Impact Chapter will guarantee you a community of like-minded peers! Student Chapters operate like student-run clubs inclusive of a general membership, leadership teams and academic advisors that participate in impact-driven initiatives on-campus. Professional Chapters are regionally-based groups managed similarly to organizational boards that enable post-graduates and professionals to serve their local communities. Check out the Montreal (professional) and Earth University (undergraduate) Chapters to see how their members turn their passions into action!
2. Lead exclusive impact programs and build leadership experience
Net Impact Chapters empower members to create impact while building professional development skills such as project management, program design, community outreach and relationship-building. Chapters lead international case competitions like the Food Solutions Challenge, drive student civic engagement campaigns, organize speakers and design-thinking workshops from top sustainable companies through local conferences, and develop unique activities and events to meet the needs of individual communities.
3. Develop meaningful connections to last a lifetime
According to a recent LinkedIn article, 85% of all jobs are filled via networking. No matter where you are in your professional career, experts acknowledge that it may be more important in who you know than in what you know in order to land your dream job. As an international community of more than 100,000 members in nearly 400 Chapters, Net Impact provides the platform to develop meaningful connections. Each year thousands of people from across the world convene at the annual Net Impact Conference. Join the community at NI18 in Phoenix, AZ this October 25-27 to meet and learn from the world’s sustainable leaders!
