The Ultimate Guide To Discovering Your For-Benefit ‘Dream Job’ (Part 1)

The Ultimate Guide To Discovering Your For-Benefit ‘Dream Job’ (Part 1)

For-Benefit companies are taking over the world, and if you want your dream job…

Where your contribute your strengths to a meaningful purpose…

And make a great income AND impact in the world…

Then the new, “For-Benefit” sector is where you’ll want to begin your search.

Now, if you’ve seen the movie Office Space, then you’re familiar with what would be the exact opposite of a For-Benefit company’s culture.

Beige cubicles.

Miserable employees.

Red staplers.

You get the picture.

So what’s the alternative? Well, like I mentioned… they’re called “For-Benefit” companies, or “Purpose-Driven” organizations.

And there’s an entire movement of them rising up.

That’s great news for you, because…

 

You Can Get Paid AND Have Fun…
While Making A Difference

Wouldn’t it be great if you and your co-workers got to regularly have fun at work?

You’d wake up every morning excited for what’s to come…

Because you’d be earning a paycheck and enjoying yourself at the same time.

Well, many For-Benefit companies believe that being happy makes employees more productive. So, they create a culture of fun.

Take Zappos, for instance. They could be a normal online retailer like everyone else.

Selling stuff.

Providing customer support. The usual.

Or they could create a culture and environment so attractive that 25,000 people applied to work there in 2013.

That’s how much people LOVE For-Benefit companies – and Zappos in particular has done an outstanding job leading the way.

(Sidenote:It’s not easy to get a job at Zappos. Only 1% of the 25,000 applicants succeeded in getting the job. Here’s a different resource that will show you how to get the attention of For-Benefit companies like Zappos)

 

Then There’s The
Awesomely Unusual Perks…

Mindvalley is another excellent example of taking happiness in the workplace to the next level…

They’ve created a company culture that has been on the WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces™ for 6 straight years, while attracting employees from over 35 different countries.

Their secret?

“A focus on, in order, Happiness, Growth, Abundance and a working towards a common Mission.”

Oh yeah, they also have an kick-ass office.

Their annual team retreats on paradise islands don’t hurt their cause either.

Paradise island with a hundred like-minded people?
No thanks, I’ll stick with my comfy, beige cubicle – said no one EVER.

Now, I know what you’re thinking – these companies look great, but they would never hire me.

And if you applied with a boring, traditional resume, you’d be right.

They wouldn’t hire you.

However, there are simple, proven ways to get their attention and get the job.

Hold on to your knickers for a second though – because before you party your pants off on a paradise island, you need to know where to find companies like Zappos, Mindvalley, and the thousands of other For-Benefit organizations out there.

 

Here’s Where To Find
The Best For-Benefit Organizations…

After researching thousands of organizations and building a proprietary ranking system to qualify For-Benefit companies, my friend and business partner, Andrew Hewitt, founded the GameChangers 500.
