Finding the path




Finding a meaningful career: a personal story

Daniel is a young Swiss person, a self-described “typical generation Y”. He has a background in Psychology, works as a HR-recruiter for a big firm and coaches his friends in building their own path. His experiences in life have helped him to define his dream job in a realistic way and to know that an NGO would likely be a good place to find it. For him, money is not the primary focus, generating impact and making social change is. Getting this job and making a career out of it would bring personal fulfillment and help others, making the world a better place.

Saving the world with corporations?

Guest contribution by Elias Kost (Managing co-director of Solafrica)

Non-profit organisations have the noble goal of making the world a better place. Depending on their focus, they would usually decide on approaches such as education or lobbying. More recently however, entrepreneurial approaches have also become accepted or even preferred.
