Nonprofit Career Round-Up: 11/04/2011

The October jobs report came out today, and the results aren't that bad.  On first glance, the news doesn't seem that great.   The 80,000 jobs created last month were a sharp decline from previous months, indicating that the hiring rate has slowed.  Upon further examination, we also see that the unemployment rate fell from 9.1 to 9 percent.  A small decrease, yes, but a decrease nonetheless.  It is the lowest the rate has been since April.  Still, about 13.9 million Americans remained unemployed, and that is far too high.  But we do have to take whatever good news we get in this economy. 

Here are some of today's top nonprofit jobs to get you started:

  • Development Associate at Saratoga Performing Arts Center: The successful candidate will have a minimum of three years nonprofit fundraising experience including participation in a multi-million dollar fundraising and or capital campaign. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: development and management of membership/fundraising campaign; cultivation of prospective donors and major gifts, coordination with outside consultancy for creation of planned and estate giving program; maintenance of organization’s donor database; stewardship of high-level donors, grant research and writing.
  • Director of Talent Management at Kohls Group Consulting: The Director of Talent Management will provide leadership and management for all human resource functions and will collaborate with senior management and front line employees to ensure that Starr Commonwealth's approach to human resources is innovative, state of the art and positions Starr Commonwealth as a leader in talent management.
