Are you looking to connect with authentic changemakers to better reflect your own career expectations, skills and mindset?

If you answer these questions with yes, we recommend to join the next Impact Career Roundtable. These roundtables take place each semester at SQUARE. They are always co-organized and co-created by HSG Students, HSG Alumni/ae and the Responsibility & Sustainability Team at the University of St. Gallen. Find out more about the past and the upcoming roundtables on this page. Furthermore, you can explore selected online job platforms that feature impact-oriented career opportunities.
