Many of the positions posted on this blog fall into the "typical nonprofit jobs" category. That means you're usually seeing a lot of Development Director or Director of Major Gifts jobs. It's important to remember, however, that nonprofits still have aspects of business within them.
That is made especially clear with today's featured nonprofit job.
