I recently had the pleasure of sharing tips and resources from Idealist Careers, as well as my own expertise, with Mac Prichard and team of Mac's List.

Mac's List is a Portland-based resource for helping passionate, creative professionals learn how to find meaningful and rewarding work in Portland, Oregon, and Washington.
