What's on our minds this week: Career Transitions

This weekend, we spoke on the topic of career transitions at the Net Impact Summit in NYC and fielded a lot of questions about finding purposeful work. From thoughts on understanding tradeoffs (between money and impact) to describing your archetype through your resume (“I’m a creator.” “I’m a relationship builder.”), the conversation covered the spectrum.

But what we found most powerful were the stories from numerous folks that had made the change. There was no single way to make the transition: some laid groundwork for a career change for years, others took advantage of an opportunity that suddenly came their way, still more described switching careers, switching back, and then trying it a third time.

At Project X, we don’t believe there is any “right” way to pivot into a purposeful job. All we know for sure is that courage, community and persistence are the best ways to get you moving in new directions.

Purposefully yours,
Jeff, Greg, Yulia, Mada, and the Project X team

Top 10 Purposeful Jobs from PROJECT X





Looking for a job that's different & meaningful?





What's on our minds this week: Creativity vs Efficiency

We live in a world that is obsessed with efficiency, productivity, and getting the most out of every single hour we spend at work. (Just google "productivity hacks" for an endless list of things you could be doing to work faster, better, longer.)

Yet, when it comes to inspiration and doing our best creative work, it can be anything but efficient. There are no 'productivity hacks' to the creative process. There are no hard rules either, just observations that people in the creative roles have made over the years: show up, do the work (so have a routine, but don't let the burden of efficiency kill your creative spirit), and follow your curiosity. That should make for a much richer (if less efficient) life.

Purposefully yours,
Jeff, Greg, Yulia, Mada, and the Project X team

What's on our minds this week: Bridging the gap between business and purpose
In a few weeks, we're headed to Dubai to speak to an audience of global leaders about the future of work. Specifically, we're exploring ways in which we can use education to bridge the gap between business and purpose.

We're strong believers that one doesn't negate the other. Indeed, it is the businesses that understand their deeper purpose (beyond profit-making) that make a lasting impact on societies. Got thoughts about this subject? Share them with us by replying to this email!

Addressing Gaps in Your Work History


I have a few gaps in my work experience. I took some time off to raise my children, and then there was another period after I was laid off from a position. How should I handle these gaps on my resume?

It's completely normal to have gaps on your resume. What's important is being transparent about these time periods and position yourself overall so that these gaps don't overshadow your impressive experience. Here are a few specific tips to address any gaps in your work experience:

1) Be clear about gaps in your cover letter. The cover letter provides a logical place to provide an explanation for any time between positions listed on your resume, as well as a way to position this information in the context of the full story of your fit and interest in a role.

2) Don't try to mask gaps with a functional resume. Stick with the timeline approach of a chronological resume to ensure that your resume is easy to follow and doesn't require the reader to hunt for basic information like specific places of employment or dates employed. If your "employment story" isn't clear, the reader will assume that there is something you are trying to hide.

3) Think about how you spent your time between positions, and communicate this in your resume. If you had a pro bono consulting job, volunteered, or participated in some other community activity, list this in your work experience. If you did any special training or earned a certificate or degree during this time, add this information to the education section of your resume. Include dates so that it's clear when these activities occurred.

Following these tips will allow you to present gaps in a positive and transparent light. In the end, it's not about the fact that you've had gaps in your employment; it's about being clear about gaps, communicating how you used your time in between jobs, and turning a gap into an asset whenever possible.
