Every profession and industry is its own little world, but the social sector takes the cake for its unique challenges (as well as opportunities!). If you want to break into the social sector, let alone do anything big or become anyone special in it, you must know how to develop and leverage your own, customized network. Then, you have to get yourself right into the middle of the action! One of the best ways to start is by getting an understanding of what the playing field looks like. Do you have a clear sense of how things work, who the leaders are, how to leverage what they know, and how to become successful in your own efforts to make a difference?
