Writing a book: Service Corps to Social Impact Career

In June 2009, I published a career book called Service Corps to Social Impact Career for prospective, current, and former participants of a wide range of service corps who want to use their service experience as a building block to their next steps.

Developing the book involved:

  • Identifying topics to include (creating an outline of the project)
  • Learning and adhering to the organization’s style guide
  • Researching, writing, and revising — meeting deadlines all the way
  • Collaborating with an editor and manager to make decisions about the final content, look, title, etc.
  • Tying content of the book to relevant resources including Idealist’s Guides to Nonprofit Careers and our podcast shows
