* Accelerate Your Nonprofit Career: Strategic Resume and Cover Letters*
The purpose of this workshop is to accelerate career growth for nonprofit
professionals, career changers, volunteers/interns, and social impact
leaders who want to leverage their volunteer or pro-bono experience as they
search for a nonprofit job. An ineffective resume and cover letter can cost
thousands of dollars in lost time, income, and opportunity. Learn tips for
writing a strong resume, how to weave the right story on your cover letter
to have the greatest impact, and leave with a personal "mission statement"
help you with networking on and off line.

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).

SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly ProfDev
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to
affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
movement building.

With almost 2500 members and 7+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (170+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
