Crossposted from PCDN: https://pcdnetwork.org/ 

Updated on April 25, 2018.

Finding the right job in social change, development, peacebuilding, social entrepreneurship, and related fields requires a combination of the right experience and training, an understanding of the field, developing strong connections and a bit of serendipity. In addition to academic and/or professional training, it is essential to have an understanding of how social change works in practice. Many people working in social change, will not find employment with “social change” or “peacebuilding” but with organizations in others sectors (including international development, education, environment, social entrepreneurship, social impact, business) working on social change related jobs. Thus, it is also important in the job search to broaden your scope to include international development organizations, government and intergovernmental institutions, for-profit and business institutions, educational institutions, and more.

We have put together this meta-list (and are constantly revising it, please send your suggestions of what to consider adding to info(at)pcdnetwork.org) of top job sites/platforms that are relevant to the social change space. Whether you’re searching for a job now or happy in your current job, setting getting on some key lists and reviewing them on a periodic basis is essential. This can help you see key opportunities, what are trends in the field, what skills are needed, be informed on new organizations one may not be aware off and possibly find your dream job. A key part of searching for openings is finding the right type of keywords to find relevant openings. Some suggestions include social entrepreneurship, peacebuilding, impact investing, social change, international development, sustainability, civic tech, startup, gender and youth. Here is the list
