Mother-Daughter Duo Launch GivetoGetJobs.com As An Employment Solution for Social Enterprise Sector
Entrepreneurs Betsey Epstein and Stacy McCoy will unveil their female owned startup, GivetoGetJobs.com, on May 2nd, 2011. The website is simplifying the job search process for both employers and employees within the CSR/social enterprise sectors.
Headquartered out of Beverly Hills, CA, http://www.givetogetjobs.com is accessible to job seekers and socially responsible businesses all around the world. “From a startup perspective, this is the perfect time to get involved,” Stacy said. “Our job board helps individuals find “for-profit”
While social enterprises exist all over the country, the majority are often located near urban hubs such as San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and Portland. However, through the Give to Get Jobs website, Twitter http://www.twitter.com/
Give to Get Jobs plays off the phrase give to get; job seekers can find careers that will allow them to contribute to society while getting paid. “We still tend to view the world in black and white and see the non-profit sector as the sector that does the most good and the for-profit sector as only being concerned with making money,” Stacy said. “But today, that’s just not true. There is this wonderful intersection that is established and growing in the areas of corporate social responsibility, sustainability and social enterprise. GivetoGetJobs.com represents that you can have both, not just one or the other.” Betsey and Stacy come from experiencing this intersection personally and professionally.
After working for 18 years, Betsey Epstein left her day job back in 1992 to take on the most rewarding career of her life—that of full-time mother. Betsey packed school lunches, participated in carpools and even made time to volunteer at Meals on Wheels. Things were picture perfect, or so she thought until divorce came along and changed everything. The economic crash soon followed which left Betsey, a baby boomer, feeling lost but never hopeless.
Armed with a determination to reenter the workforce, Betsey, began to look for employment opportunities that would allow her to work while also giving back to society. “I recalled my volunteer experience with Meals on Wheels,” she said. “We were providing food to elderly and disabled people at their homes. I really enjoyed that work since the recipients were always happy to have someone to talk to, even if it was only for a few minutes.”
Soon after her parents divorce, Stacy McCoy attended Wake Forest University where she graduated cum laude in 2008 with a degree in Religious Studies and a double minor in International Development & Policy and International Studies.
She was eager to jump into the international development world, but things didn’t work out quite as planned. Stacy got married then relocated to Los Angeles, CA to emotionally support her husband while he pursued his Ph.D. Widely known as the entertainment capital of the world, Stacy was not surprised to find Los Angeles lacking job openings in the international development sector. Given her interest in global giving, she bounced back and forth between the corporate and non-profit space trying to find a “professional”
“I really wanted a for-profit job where I could give back and get paid,” Stacy said recently. “As a chronic job seeker, I knew there were jobs where I could earn a living while making an impact on the world but those jobs were very difficult to find.”
The time-consuming search turned into an idea and Stacy immediately contacted the one person that could help grow her idea into a business; her mother Betsey. “When Stacy mentioned she would like to start GivetoGetJobs.com, I wasn’t even aware of the term corporate social responsibility”
According to a millennial cause study conducted by Cone, Inc., “79% of millennials want a job that gives back.” Sadly, those 79% do not know that jobs in corporate social responsibility and social enterprise exist. The majority are unaware that they can work in industries they love while making money and giving back all at the same time. Give to Get Jobs intends to change that.
