Daniela´s Tips for Young Professionals looking to land a job that shares a commitment to positive change:
01 | Twitter
You can follow @JustBetterJobs on Twitter for the latest ethical job vacancies. Using Twitter is also an effective way to connect directly with companies. Many companies tweet their vacancies and/or re-tweet the jobs post by JustBetterJobs.
02 | Online Presence
Having your own website is useful so employers could learn more from what they read on the cover letter. Also, a cover letter itself can be done in a creative way. It is all about standing out.
03 | Be Personable
It can even be a good idea to just pop by at a company’s office (especially if it's a smaller one) to say hello and let them know that you are interested in working for them. A quick informal chat can make a big difference and you never know what it can lead to.
04 | Be Yourself
Several companies JustBetterJobs works with have told stated that they really want to know why a candidate applies for the role and why he/she wants to make a difference.
05 | Just ask
Take the leap and just ask, especially if a company has not advertised any vacancies. Send your future employer an email, connect on LinkedIn, tweet to them, and tell them what you can do and what you want!
