In my former work life, I spent my days working at nonprofits. But in the last several months, as you can probably hint from my posts, I made the move to a new and exciting job in the field I’ve been interested in for so long: sustainable fashion.
When I’m not writing here, I’m working full-time on the social responsibility team for an international women’s fashion brand. And while my personal and professional interests overlap a lot, I have been trying to keep what I do during my day job and what I write about here as separate as I can.
So, please pardon this brief exception.
I wrote a post on Idealist.org about how I transitioned from the nonprofit to the for-profit world and how I found my current job. It’s a little bit sustainable fashion and a lot a bit career advice. Read the post here.
It took a lot of focus and a lot of letting people think I was being crazy to get to where I am. And since I’ve talked to many other young people interested in similar work or just on the search for a meaningful career, I’m hoping my story is helpful. Please let me know if you like the article, and perhaps I will share more on the topic of careers in Corporate Social Responsibility, particularly in the apparel industry.
