Did you choose to work in the web + social/solidarity? If so, why is it important to you? What do you get out of it?
I have web / social media / communication skills, and after a few years in the commercial sector, I thought that these could benefit better causes.
So, I still find it easier to get up in the morning when you know you're working for a good cause, even if working in the voluntary sector is not without problems...
The superpower you need in your job?
A Super Resourceful power.
According to you, training, skills, important qualities? What served you (old experiences, extra-professional experiences) when you would never have imagined it?
Self-educate/discuss with peers/be curious…
Kevin, community manager at the Red Cross. Don't get me wrong, he is very very happy in his job!
Your best memory ?
Work on major international disasters. It's very disturbing to say (and probably also to hear) but if you have the opportunity to work in an association called "emergency" it's really both exhausting and rewarding.
Any advice for those who would like to go down this path?
