How to Prep for a Social Impact Job Interview

Well folks, the longest month of the year is almost over, finally, and now 2025 will only feel two blinks away. Here at the Impact Job, we’ve been using this month to help prepare you to land your dream job in 2024.

We’ve talked resumes, portfolios, and cover letters, so if you don’t land an interview at this point, we don’t know how to help ya.

Just kidding, we totally believe in you. 100%.

And WHEN you land that interview, you better nail it. Plus, keep in mind that if you’re new to the social impact industry, interviews look and feel a little different over here.

Here’s how you can prep:

  1. Know the ins and outs of the organization/company, especially its mission. We’re not asking you to recite the mission statement from memory, but you need to have a firm grasp on what this company stands for and how it’s trying to positively impact the world.
  2. Consider how your mission and impact line up with their mission. This isn’t just about highlighting your skills, it’s about displaying a passion for the work.
  3. But also, you need to be able to talk about your skills. Choose the top three skills from your resume that align with the position you’re applying for, and come up with examples of those skills at work in your previous jobs.
  4. Consider your own impact. Companies in the social impact industry want to hire people who care and will positively contribute to their culture. How did you have a positive impact at your last job? Did you spearhead a book club, recycling efforts, or volunteer program?
  5. If you don’t have experience in the social impact industry yet, look back over your volunteer experience and prepare to talk about how it impacted you and your career change, as well as the skills you gained from the experiences.

A little interview prep can go a long way. You can’t know every single question you’re going to be asked, but the preparation will help you feel more confident and not look like a bumbling idiot.

Good luck out there, and we’ll see ya in January! Still need help with your resume? Sign up for a professional resume review.
