About this Event

(When you have registered, you will be redirected to the application form).

Your job is how you spend at least a fourth of your time each week, for most. The COVID-19 has awakened many people to the need to make more of that time.

As a result of the past year, are you looking for a job that is better aligned with your purpose or values?

Purpose-driven work is on the rise across the United States and Canada. You CAN make the change to work that is more fulfilling and impactful.

If you are unsure how, Be Social Change’s Small Group Career Coaching Circles are here to help.

When it comes to any job search – especially social impact jobs – there are four key pillars that anyone who has experienced a transition like this can attest are supremely helpful:

  • a supportive (and growing) network
  • expert insights into the field of your interest
  • an accountability partner/group
  • experienced eyes on your application materials

Be Social Change is now offering Small Group Career Coaching Circles to support people with these success factors as they look for their next job.


The circles will provide you with:

  • a small cohort of people who are also looking for jobs
  • a trusted and trained career coach looking over your application materials
  • activities to get you prepped for applying, interviews, and working in a sector that's meaningful to you
  • opportunities to share in one another's networks and be supported/support others in meeting great contacts
  • a group that will hold you accountable for achieving your career objectives
  • an experienced facilitator who will keep the group on track toward more purposeful work, provide safe space for reflections, and help generate well-being and meaning during your job transition period

The Facilitator

Jenn Lishansky, Career and Life Coach, Chief Engagement Officer, Be Social Change

I contribute to the world by helping people connect with their greatest talents and joys and then pursue them. My coaching is grounded in motivational interviewing, strong and emotionally intelligent support, and an understanding of evolutionary dynamics.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with thousands of people to overcome burnout, develop self-confidence, tell their stories, craft their life-vision and mission statements, and find calm and clarity in their careers and lives.

When I am not coaching, I am the Chief Engagement Officer for Be Social Change. I identify ways to support organizations in the social impact space by leveraging Be Social Change’s resources and community.

Previously, I have worked in the nonprofit sector and served as a youth delegate to the United Nations representing the Federation of Business and Professional Women. In 2015, I founded my own business, teaching meditation to groups around New York City, including Columbia University, Facebook, the NASDAQ, Journey Meditation, as well as consulting on wellness curricula.

My Goal for You

When I found coaching, I found my purpose. Supporting individuals in the midst of transition, searching for greater meaning, is my greatest joy.

Through these circles, we will create a space to explore what compels, inspires, and brings us into alignment with our core values. My goal is that each participant connects with work that is fulfilling and impact-oriented, as well as that each person develops the practical support and strategies to make that transition.

This is my goal and my wish for you: that you may find work that you too are energized to wake up to.

The Structure:

  • Three 1.5-hour meetings over the course of January
  • A private session with the career coach/facilitator
  • Weekly activities and goal-tracking
  • Review of up to 3 cover letter and resumes each

Eligibility (sign up if any of the following apply):

  • You need a job
  • You are looking for a job that matches your purpose
  • You are seeking a support system during your joblessness
  • You question if your cover letter and resume are the reasons you aren't getting interview requests
  • You are only applying for jobs online (and missing the most effective strategy for getting a new job)
  • You need accountability to get to your goals each week
  • You want this process to provide benefit beyond just a job (aka, a new community, a resource for career development, inspiration to continue pursuing purpose)


For the month of January, the cost will be offered at a sliding scale: $350 – $500.
