The third episode of Echoing Green's Be Bold Podcast, that I host, is up. The show features a discussion of two career related questions with Lara Galinsky, author of Be Bold: Create A Career with Impact.
The questions are:
1. I recently quit from an organization where I worked for the last 11 years. I haven’t decided what to do next and am considering doing consultancy work. How do I market myself given that I’ve never done this kind of work before?
2. I am currently completing a Ph.D in Anthropology with a focus in U.S. Historical Archeology. I am now interested in pursuing a career with either a nonprofit or NGO abroad, working primarily in the area of education and educational development policy. My question is twofold:
a. How do I now market myself for this field when most of my education and research has been in another field, and primarily in the US.
b. While looking for organizations to apply to, I have not had much luck in finding any geared towards education, and education development abroad. Are there any particularly useful websites, or organizations that I could direct my search to?

Finally, the deadline to apply for an Echoing Green Fellowship for social entrepreneurs is coming up: December 1, 2008.
