03 Dev Aujla on good jobs beyond the nonprofit sector

Dev Aujla Twitter bio photoIn this Do Good Better podcast episode I chat with Dev Aujla of Catalog about whether the nonprofit sector has lost its monopoly on jobs that do good, and what the job market looks like in new types of careers and companies that are doing good (ie not just nonprofits anymore!).

I also talk about things to do when you’re leaving a job (e.g. succession planning, leaving a legacy, reflecting on learning, and actually handing over the role).

Finally, I answer the question “how should nonprofits deal with corporate volunteer days of service?” and share a listener response from Episode 02 on why she goes to conferences.

Updated June 6, 2015: Instructions for submitting questions are now at trinaisakson.com/podcast

What frank advice do you want about a difficult situation you’re facing relevant to the nonprofit sector/social innovation/social purpose business/general do-gooding? What information have you always wanted to know but didn’t know who to ask?

ME WANT TO HEAR! (instructions below)

After some thinking and chatting I did over March/April, I’ve decided to experiment with podcasting. Drumroll……enter the Do Good Better podcast!

Do Good Better podcast logo 300pxFor those of you who are addicted to podcasts as I am, I’m imagining something like Dan Savage, but for nonprofit sector/social innovation/doing good advice. Start off with a rant, or perhaps a conversation with someone with an interesting opinion. Then dive into a few listener questions. Finish off with listeners’ feedback on advice I’ve given (e.g. additional advice for a question previously shared).

Seriously just listen to one episode of the Savage Lovecast to understand the form (warning: his podcast is about relationships and sex and there is lots of graphic content, definitely NSFW in most workplaces).
