It’s hard to find useful nonprofit career advice. Many people just say “Stick with it! You’ll be rewarded!” But according to the Bridgespan Group, most nonprofit staff are NOT being groomed for leadership, and only 33% of the time do people from inside the nonprofit even attempt to fill senior leadership level positions. That means most of the time, you will have to make a leap to another nonprofit to move on up.
In this hands-on, how-to session by the author of The Wild Woman’s Guide to Fundraising, you will get advice and materials that are easy to use and created especially for you, the busy fundraising professional who barely has time to eat lunch, let alone search for a new job. We’ll make it easy for you to succeed in your search.
Let this session show you the right way to secure an early win. This workshop provides sound advice on must-do tasks for your first days on the job, and guides you every step of the way through the interview, as well as assists you through your first meetings with your new boss. Whether you’re looking to make that next lateral move for a fundraisingjob, or you simply want to communicate better with your boss and co-workers, this workshop will help you. Intrigued?
