More than Money Careers – 2013 Awardee

Despite the remarkable increase in courses, programs, and experiential learning opportunities in social entrepreneurship and innovation, as seen from these innovation awardees, many students remain unable to translate their education into a clear, concise, and coherent career development plan. Even though sustainable businesses (e.g. Patagonia and Seventh Generation), impact investing firms, and education social enterprises have grown, students seeking impact careers lack the necessary signposting. Instead of replacing career centers, the More Than Money Careers online modules make career centers as effective with impact driven students as they are with students interested in more traditional career paths. The modules engage students in going from intention to action as they take steps to get clear, get connected, and get hired for jobs that maximize impact and income.
