Hate Your Job? New Organization Helps D.C. Residents Design Careers They Love

“So what do you do?”

In a city that puts so much emphasis on careers, it feels pretty terrible when you don’t love yours.

According to Gallup’s “State of the America Workforce” report, two-thirds of Americans are feeling disengaged at work. But for us working adults, there aren’t a lot of resources to help us make the necessary career change, and the whole process feels unclear and lonely.

At Mission Collaborative, we believe that there’s a better way to make career changes.

We’re a new organization here in D.C. that provides a framework and community to help you build a career you love. We host workshops and programs for career changers from all sorts of backgrounds to help them figure out exactly what they want to do next with their careers, then make it happen.

In the past year we’ve helped over 600 D.C. professionals start building careers they love. The in-person community we create gives participants motivation and accountability, while the career design process we teach provides a far better framework for determining your ideal next step. And we don’t just have people think about what they might like to do, we help them actually test out their potential career paths before making the shift.
