Episode 3 - Interview with Katy Hall - Newberry Library

In this episode we have an interview with Katy (Hall) Orenchuk, Vice President of Development at the Newberry Library, Chicago's independent research library.

This is the first of a set of interviews which will cover not only perspectives on work in philanthropy, but specifically the question of where do you find joy in your work and joy in making an ask.

Katy shares amazing ideas including how to market yourself when looking for new job opportunities, how to grow into a skill set which might not come to you naturally, how taking good notes is a matter of being respectful to donors, the importance of a good work/life balance, and how to graciously receive a no and not let that deter you from your work.
