Quiz: What type of opportunities should you focus on?

Truth: Not all opportunities are a fit for everyone, and not all help is impactful.

After supporting thousands of individuals across dozens of sectors to find their match for socially and environmentally impactful opportunities, we’ve seen how a ‘spray and pray’ approach can undermine your momentum and potential for impact.

If you want to focus your time, growth and create real impact, take this short quiz to discover what type of opportunities suit your impact style (AKA your impact secret sauce). Plus, we’ll share some very scientific, tastey hints on where your secret sauce for impact lies. Nom nom.

Guide: 50+ scholarships and funding opportunities for young people in Aus.

Changing the trajectory of our future will take many types of interventions. We all have a unique secret sauce that can push this mission forward (or get wasted on the wrong fit). We see hundreds of new opportunities each week across dozens of sectors so we’ve designed this handy quiz to help guide you towards what type of opportunities you should be looking out for, and give you some very scientific, crafty hints on where your secret sauce for impact lies. Nom nom.

Imagine a generation unified in embodying purpose-driven leadership, permeating every facet of our workforce, communities, and civic systems. Together, we could completely shift the trajectory of our future.

"I wouldn't be where I am now without Ripple. Your investment in me since the beginning will never go unnoticed - you've been instrumental".

Jahin was trying to find his first job when he won a Ripple mentoring sesh. He landed the role in health policy but didn't stop there; getting involved in our Launchpad, leveraging this into public speaking inc. TedX + more. He now inspires thousands through his role as CEO of the Australian School for Entrepreneurs. And he's partnered with the F1, so #Ripplegoals.


"From a place of gratitude and deep, deep thanks - I have never felt more supported, inspired and uplifted in my career. The humour and humility of the team make what should be a terrifying experience personable and easy".

After being a long-time newsletter scroller, Iremide attended a Power Up and used this to help shape her application for the Plan Australia Youth Activist Series, which she was successful in. She's a founding team member of United Africa Farm, and after completing our Career Lab program she landed a role at Future Women.
