Podcast: Net Impact's Corporate Careers that Make a Difference

By Amy Potthast.

Can you make the world more sustainable by working for a corporation?featured

According to Net Impact and its free, downloadable career guide Corporate Careers that Make a Difference, you can.

Everyday, business leaders make a positive environmental and social impact in their companies – both in dedicated green jobs, as well as in more conventional job functions.

On this episode of the Idealist Careers Podcast, Idealist’s Amy Potthast chats with Abby Davisson from Net Impact, a national nonprofit dedicated to engaging business in making the world sustainable, and Yonnie Leung, Principal of Environmental Sustainability for Shared Services at Pacific Gas and Electric Company in California and one of the professionals profiled in the Net Impact career guide.

During the conversation, they also briefly mention Net Impact’s Business as UNusual Guide to MBA programs that have a focus on corporate citizenship. The 2011 Guide launches this week; if you’re in the market for MBA programs, you can download it free from Net Impact. You can meet many of the schools mentioned in Business as UNusual this fall at the Idealist Grad Fairs taking place across the country.
