Nonprofit Career Round-Up: 5/9/2011

Hope everyone had a good Mother's Day!  If you haven't already, check out my latest post, which includes a story from a reader's experience as a nonprofit volunteer; and how it led him to a full time job.  And after you do that, you can see the latest non profit job links:

  • '4 Free Ways to Learn Code Online'-This post from Mashable doesn't directly relate to nonprofit jobs, but it is a helpful thing to read if you want to do web work for nonprofit organizations.  I would still recommend taking a basic HTML course, but the links in this article are definitely helpful to build up your knowledge of coding.
  • 'How to Make the Case for Social Media at Your Organization'-Do you work at a nonprofit that is hesitant to delve into the world of social media?  Read this blog from Katya's Non-Profit Marketing Blog to discover the best ways to convince your organization to use this technology.
  • '7 Better Ways to Thank Someone in Your Business Network'-This blog post from Mojo40 stresses the importance of sending thank you notes to people who have helped you get a job.  Not only is it the polite thing to do, but it can also help you in the future if you need to use that reference again.  After all, why is someone going to want to continue helping you if you seemingly don't appreciate their service?
