    This is a wonderful look at the types of work that are a draw to business students. While I personally find myself working for various companies, I do also find great personal fulfillment from the marketing work I do with nonprofits, which has currently only been volunteer work on my end.

    Super interesting, Liz. Much appreciate you sharing these insights. It's interesting from the employer side as well because there's always a blend of work that fits into the buckets referenced above. Even for mission driven businesses, there's lots of flat out grind work that is fundamental to impact but sometimes hard to connect to it in a super clear tangible way. I think the challenge there is to be able to see how all the pieces of an effort come together to yield tangible outcomes to critical problems. I think that helps me get through the grind work when I want to be sinking my teeth more directly into problems. I wonder how much you see this reality from the non-profit side? do you still have to connect the dots between NetImpact logistical work and NetImpact social impact? Anyhow, much appreciate you putting this into my brain. thanks.
