Nonprofit Career Round-Up: 5/16/2011

Just as a follow-up to my earlier post, I wanted to know if any of our readers had any experience doing national service work through AmeriCorps or programs like it?  Did you think it was worthwhile?  Your thoughts are always appreciated!  Anyway, here are the links I have rounded up today:

  • 'Four Tips Young Nonprofit Professionals Should Keep in Mind When Job Hunting'-This is another great post from Allison Jones.  If you haven't already, check out her blog.  This post offers good advice for young job seekers hoping to break into the nonprofit sector.  Basic stuff, but very well written and informative.
  • 'Tips for a Successful Job Search: Half the Battle is Knowing What you Want'-The title of this post says it all.  If you don't know what you are looking for, how are you supposed to be successful during your job search?  What I like most about this post is that it drives home that you should know what you want from every aspect of your dream job-not just what type of job it is.
  • 'Your Org's Personality in Three Words?'-Here's a post that should be helpful for any hiring managers that might be reading this blog.  Perception is key to getting people to work for your company, so it's imperative to describe accurately what it's like to work there.
