Last month we kicked off our monthly Twitter chat series with key tips for your job search. We loved the opportunity to chat with you in real-time while providing helpful tips and a sense of community.

For our next chat on Tuesday, February 24th at 1 p.m. EST, we're talking with The Nonprofit Career Coach and author of Strategic Volunteering: 50 Ingredients to Transform Your Life and Career, Mark McCurdy! Mark is known for providing specialized coaching to purpose-driven professionals and helping candidates position themselves as irreplaceable resources within the organizations they serve.

During Tuesday’s chat, Mark will share the benefits of strategic volunteering, the best way to make strong connections as a volunteer, and tips for turning a volunteer position into a paid gig! You'll also have the chance to ask him questions and connect with other people who want careers in social change.

Using the hashtag #IdealistCareers, you can follow and participate in our conversations on the last Tuesday of each month (1 p.m. EST). We hope you will be able to join us!
