Non-Profit Job Resources -- from Idealist.org

I received this message from Idealist.org -- they have developed a new book on nonprofit careers which might be a good resource for those of you that have targeted that industry for your job or internship search.


I am writing you from Idealist to tell you about a new resource we just launched to help people understand the nonprofit sector, and the range of opportunities within it.

This free book, the Idealist Guide to Nonprofit Careers, is written for everyone from first- time job seekers to experienced professionals, and includes chapters on:

- Nonprofit Speak 101
- How to Find a Career or a Nonprofit That Is Right for You
- Networking: Is It Really All About Who You Know?
- How to Make Yourself a Stronger Candidate
- Evaluating Organizational Culture

And much more. The whole thing is online at http://www.idealist.org/careerguide

Click on the link to see the table of contents and to download each chapter separately, or the whole book as one PDF file.

If you have any questions or comments about this guide, feel free to write us through this link: http://tinyurl.com/yto65m

I also want to take this opportunity to tell you about our upcoming series of Nonprofit Career Fairs. Coming up this spring, with between 50 and 150 organizations tabling in each city, are:

- Minneapolis, March 31
- Washington , April 2
- Indianapolis, April 8
- Philadelphia, Apr 10
- Los Angeles, Apr 15
- Atlanta, Apr 22
- Chicago, May 20

Lastly, we've recently collaborated with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Meyer Foundation, and CompassPoint Nonprofit Services to conduct a survey about the future leadership of the nonprofit sector. The results, with a full report about them, are now online at:


We hope you find all these resources useful, and we really appreciate your help in sharing them with friends and colleagues in your networks.

Thanks, and all the best,

Steven Pascal-Joiner,
