Today’s episode is a little different than usual, and I loved it. I know that I have a lot of listeners who are not entrepreneurs. You’re in the corporate world, or you’re a student, or you’re an employee, or you’re in a job that you just cannot stand and you’re looking to change jobs or find a job where you can serve on a team that utilizes your gifts. You’re looking for a job with purpose and meaning and you just don’t know where to start. Well, we’ve got you covered today!
My guest this week is Mac Prichard, founder and president of Prichard Communications and Mac’s List. Mac is the proud owner of two registered B Corporations and he is so passionate about helping others find their dream job that allows them to make a sustainable living while doing good in the world. Today’s episode has something for literally everyone in it and I know you’re going to love it![click_to_tweet tweet=”“Job hunting is a skill and like any skill, it can be mastered.” – @mac_prichard @macs_list #businesswithpurposepodcast” quote=”“Job hunting is a skill and like any skill, it can be mastered.” – @mac_prichard”]
B CORPS BROKEN DOWN
Benefit Corporations, or B Corps, are huge in the ethical world, but many people don’t know the significance of this type of business. With over 2,500 B Corps across the world, these businesses aren’t just trying to make a profit, they are used to better the community and the environment. Mac breaks down what it takes to become a B Corp and how these businesses manage the triple bottom line.[click_to_tweet tweet=”“It’s not just about asking people for help or trying to make connections with others, it’s also about being of service to others.” – @mac_prichard @macs_list #businesswithpurposepodcast” quote=”“It’s not just about asking people for help or trying to make connections with others, it’s also about being of service to others.” – @mac_prichard”]
THE HIDDEN JOB MARKET
So many people who are unemployed or feel stuck in a job are looking to pursue something that has meaning and purpose. Yet, it can be very difficult to find a job to fulfill these needs just by looking through job boards. Most great positions are never advertised and are found only in the hidden job market through word of mouth. Mac and I discuss why some people struggle to find jobs in the hidden job market and how you can learn to find them.
Creating relationships is key in all aspects of life, but so many dread the thought of networking. However, people’s idea of being successful at networking events is often very different than how to actually be successful at networking events. Mac and I chat about playing up your strengths to make networking more bearable and the importance of authentic conversation, listening, and asking questions when building connections.
