PCDN has helped me and thousands of others with their careers through your website, through your publications, and now through your videos. The PCDN team are truly brilliant at networking for impact and their deep insights into how to use LinkedIn as a key tool in building collaboration and advancing one’s career are truly unique. Over the past 20 years, PCDN has helped me get positions in government and in academia, as well as dozens of consultancies. I am a faculty member now and I always recommend that my students sign up for PCDN to learn about opportunities from scholarships, internships, fellowships, and employment.

"PCDN is my go-to source for what's happening right now in the field. It knits our community together with information on issues, solutions, learning and employment opportunities, all with a few clicks. As an NGO leader and professional coach, I rely on PCDN for timely, relevant and actionable information and recommend it whenever I can."

After two years of working on a career change through study, networking and volunteering I reached a plateau in my personal and career growth. It was at this point that I signed up for PCDN’s Career coaching, hoping that it would propel me forward, which it did! In fact, it exceeded my expectations. From his vast knowledge, many years of experience and wide network Dr. Craig Zelizer generously shared ideas and helped me refine my goals as well develop actionable plans. With his help I overhauled my resume, applied for a fellowship and refined my search for knowledge and employment. My self-confidence was boosted by having him in my corner, challenging me and cheering me on. I will always be grateful for this experience and would recommend this to anyone!

What will be the format?

We are deeply committed to maximizing learning, networking and impact. The workshop will include presentation of key tips, lots of interactive exercises on using LinkedIn for impact, review of LinkedIn profiles, small group networking and more.

Why is PCDN offering this?

PCDN is dedicated to helping individuals aspiring to advance careers of impact. In our extensive work with students and professionals from around the world in our workshops, career coaching, webinars, conferences and more we’ve consistently seen that many people underutilize LinkedIn in their career toolkit. The platform has incredible power beyond landing a job and if one puts learning, connecting and sharing as the key approach to engaging (not just seeking a job) this leads to tremendous long-term impact for one’s career.

Why LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is the world’s leading professional network with over 700 million users around the world. The PCDN Team has found incredible benefit personally and organizationally from regular almost daily engagement on the platform including landing consultancies, building counting high-impact collaborations and partnerships, radically increasing PCDN’s community and clients and more.


We’ve been invested in doing original research, training and pushing ourselves to continually advance our expertise in the social impact sector. We’ve published peer reviewed articles, conducted applied consultancies on social change careers, interacted with hundreds of thought leaders in the field and coached hundreds of professionals to advance their careers, use LinkedIn, and land new positions. We’ve invested significant energy in learning the ins and outs of how to use LinkedIn for Impact and field tested our process.

Is this workshop live?

Yes this will be a two-hour highly interactive workshop for participants.

Will this workshop be offered again?

We are pleased to launch our PCDN workshop series in 2021 and plan to offer several short workshops on key topics around careers of impact. We do hope to offer the LinkedIn workshop later in 2021 for a second time.

I still have questions about the workshop who can I contact?

Contact us and we will get back to you within a 1-2 business days.
