Bmeaningful 2014 image

2013 was an exciting year for Bmeaningful. We launched our website in August and have been highlighting jobs with a purpose and a paycheque ever since. Along the way we’ve met many inspiring people and have been working hard to share their insights with you on our blog. We’ve posted articles ranging from interviews with self-proclaimed Purple Sheep to job search tips on how to find your own job with purpose.

Our goal for 2014 is to become your destination for insider information on jobs with a purpose and a paycheque. We’re excited about the slate of interviews with industry insiders that we have lined up for 2014. We’ll be bringing you more behind the scenes tours of social enterprises and CSR departments. You’ll also find a revamped website that we hope will make it even easier for Purple Sheep to find their job with purpose. Stay tuned, lots to come in 2014!

Although we’re already looking ahead to next year, with 2013 coming to a close we wanted to take a moment and reflect on some of the most memorable insights from this past year. So here goes, our rundown of some memorable blog posts from 2013!

Dan Pallota’s TED talk on The Way We Think About Charity Is Dead Wrong was one of our earliest inspirations for making it easier for more professionals to do meaningful work. Pallota nicely articulates the business case for non-profits to seek out the professionals that have the skills and passion to help them achieve their goals.

Inside ecojot was our first behind the scenes look at a social enterprise. We want to provide you with a clearer picture of what it’s like to work at social enterprises, like the culture, work environment and people. Way more insight than what you’d find in a job post or on a company website. All to help you learn what the right purpose driven job is for you. In 2014, we’ll be providing exclusive access to more social impact companies and jobs.

We spent a lot of time in 2013 profiling inspirational professionals who shared their career journey with us and other interesting facts along the way. Bmeaningful is grateful for all of their time and the insights they shared. Jodi’s advice that it’s ‘not about fitting in, but going after our passions with everything we’ve got’ really resonated with our readers.

So there you have it, some memorable insights from 2013. Happy New Year!
