Don’t know much about impact investing, but networking with people in the space can definitely give you a leg up.

Find people in the types of roles you want to be in and reach out on LinkedIn to see if they are willing to chat briefly about their role. Ask about how they got into the position, what they do, what they like about the space / firm and what their biggest challenges are. This is called an "informational interview" and it's good for figuring out the lay of the land and occasionally being able to get referred if they like you and have openings

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
