10-Minute Survey

We're gathering data to inform our understanding of how what makes you you informs your impact/sustainability/ESG career path so that we can help future CSR professionals identify where they want to go in their job search journeys.

Hi! Thank you *so* much for taking the time to respond to our 12-question impact professionals quiz. We are using these results to build something that we hope everyone in the ecosystem can use to help people trying to enter the field figure out what path would best fit their strengths, interests, and skills. 

 

If you’ve taken StrengthsFinder, MBTI, and/or an Enneagram assessment, you’ll likely want to find those results before embarking down this path. If you’ve done some but not others, no worries - tell us what you know. And if you’d like to take any of them now, you can do so at the links below before starting this quiz.
