Social Impact Employment

Social Impact Employment deepens your analytical, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills by applying what you have learned in a “real-world” setting. Refine your leadership and communication abilities while collaborating with nonprofits, government agencies, or social enterprises. Strengthen your professionals network and your resume.
The MIT GivePulse platform advertises social and environmental impact internships and jobs offered by selected community partners - nonprofit organizations, federal, state and local public agencies and for-profit companies - with an established affiliation to the PKG Center.
Some of the positions may be unpaid and/or require you (the student) to secure your own funding. We encourage you to explore Federal Work-Study, PKG Fellowships, and other funding opportunities, and talk to the PKG staff to identify possible funding sources.
Apply for a position by following the instructions on the posting. The MIT GECD website provides useful resources on email etiquette, cover letters and resumes and job interviews.
Would you like to prepare yourself for success in your social impact work? Attend one or more Get Good Stuff Done workshops, developed in collaboration with other MIT partners, such as MISTI, D-Lab, Sandbox, SAO, Legatum, Trust Center and more.
