Finding a Job in the Non-Profit Sector

Looking for a job? Thinking of switching careers? The Volunteer Center’s Training Program has had several requests in the past few months from individuals looking for information on employment in the non-profit sector, particularly from people transitioning from the corporate world.

If you need an introduction to the world of non-profits, then why not try volunteering first? Especially in light of the current economy, non-profits would welcome skilled professionals to work on specific projects and to serve on boards of directors. The job volunteer would get significant insight into non-profits, gain valuable experience in the sector, and begin networking in the field. And the non-profits would benefit from professional support. You can browse hundreds of volunteer opportunities at the Volunteer Center’s website, click here.

On March 30th, the Non-Profit Training and Resource Program will offer a free training entitled Be the Change: Finding a Job in the Non-Profit Sector. The session is geared toward new college grads, job seekers, and corporate workers heeding the national call to service. The training will be held at the Volunteer, for more information or to register for this session, call 201-489-9454 ext. 114 or email
