How do I find the right company for me?
My thoughts/My question is.. I know what I want to do in life .. for instance I want to help others and work with a company that gives back. Nonprofit, I want to work with say fair trade , sustainable companies. I also have numerous causes I want to work for /or with like the ocean, saving dogs/animals, environment , wellness, etc. I’ve been in sales my whole life -and love working trade shows, traveling and fundraising .... how do I go about narrowing down where to look and finding the right companies I want to work with??? How do I get my resume to stand out?? Thank you Kelly Hoagland

What's the best way to explain a stress-related gap in employment during an interview?
3 months ago, I decided to leave my high stress sales job before having another one lined up. I left because the stress was leading me into a deep depression, which made it difficult for me to do my job or get through the day without feeling sad or overwhelmed about the smallest inconveniences at work or home. I took this time off to focus on school, re-evaluate my career goals and improve my emotional state. Now that I have had a chance to decompress, I have started applying for new jobs, but haven't made any traction. The only thing more worrisome than the fact I haven't received any call backs is my anxiety over having to respond to the reason for leaving my former job. How should I explain my reason for leaving a company before having a new job without sounding negative or raising red flags about my "emotional weakness?"
