This “comprehensive career resource from the leading nonprofit jobs website” does exactly what it says on the tin. Aimed squarely at recent-graduates who aspire to change the world, this guide to working in nonprofits breaks down the traditional job search tips and tricks, but with an impact-edge.
It looks at the psychology of the job search, explores the benefits of networking, gives tips on how to be a stronger candidate, identifies a host of jobsearch tools, looks at the importance of evaluating organisational culture, shows how to write resumes and do a good interview, gives advice on negotiating a compensation package, and dispels some common misconceptions about the nonprofit world. It also has a handy glossary of nonprofit-speak, which I found really interesting!
All in all, this is an excellent resource for new recruits into the nonprofit sector – though old hands and career switchers will almost certainly get something out of it too.
