How can I break into CSR? There don’t seem to be many roles at the associate level

Even at big companies, CSR is often a 1-8 person function. Most people move into it later in their careers. Would focus on more general social impact / non profit work, or even just your regular consulting job while being extremely active in D&I / social impact groups.

Hi! It’s tough. I’ve been trying for several months now. My two cents: - brush up on the basic language and frameworks. (i.e., Know what SEER means, etc) - there are a few open source classes online you can take to teach yourself the basics - revamp your resume to highlight CSR-relevant points - network within your company for both internal CSR groups as well as client-facing practitioners who advise on CSR strategy - look into ways to implement internal CSR-type initiatives at your company to boost your resume - and most importantly, network! Go to conferences and events both in your city and across the nation that will facilitate meeting the right people so they can help you get a job and/or teach you what you need to know. Be prepared for the long game ... I’m still trying :)

Because so many people want to be involved, they usually volunteer on a number of initiatives with the same people over and over again. I'm just now bringing on someone to a project that's been volunteering in PRD consistently for 6 months. Also don't expect someone to staff you just bc you think their work is cool. These are usually small teams

Recently received 80k offer for Amex Gold and 150k offer for Platinum. Currently use CSR for travel and dining, which we will downgrade later this year as wife got CSP for 100k bonus (which we might upgrade to CSR to keep 1.5x redemption). Considering Gold for groceries (family of 4) and potentially for dining over CSP/CSR. With groceries, 4x return will just offset AF. Have no exp with MP. Worth getting gold? Can I later (next month) also get Platinum for bonus for when travel starts again?

Hello fellow desi consultants, I am currently working for Deloitte USA. I got a transfer offer to Deloitte Canada office. I have 2.5 years work experience and a bachelors degree. When i was calculating my CSR score for express entry it came to be around 418, assuming I’ll score the highest band in IELTS. Does anyone know if Deloitte Canada does LMIA for transfer hires like me? I am not sure if having a job offer helps unless the company files for LMIA.
