Nonprofit Career Round-Up: Last Day of March Edition

It's the last day of March, and still we have reports of snow showers tonight on the East Coast.  Isn't it supposed to be Spring?  Anyway, here are your links for today...

  • 'Trends From the 2011 Nonprofit Technology Conference'-This post from NeighborWorks News isn't specifically about the nonprofit job search, but it is useful for all of you jobseekers.  Why?  It's important to know the latest nonprofit trends; that knowledge will be impressive to interviewers.  Plus, you should want to know all about the industry you want to join.  For example, you probably should have already at least had a idea that NTC was going on this week.
  • 'How to Handle Tough Interview Questions'-Since I wrote about nonprofit interviews today, I thought this article was very appropriate.  It's originally from Commongood Careers, but send thanks to the College of Charleston for reposting it!
  • 'Nonprofit Jobs: Flexibility and Opportunity--at a Cost'-This is a sort of sobering article, but it's important to read if you want to make sure you know all the risks and rewards of breaking into the nonprofit sector.  There is no doubt that there are some downsides to working at a non-profit; but of course, there is a downside to almost anything.  Read this article, weigh the pros and cons, and then you will know whether this career path is for you.

  1. Each of this organization is served and led by numerous individuals who have low salaries and even no wages at all. But look, they're enjoying their lives despite the financial constraints that they are experiencing.
