Using a nonprofit job board to find a job is smart
If you currently work in the nonprofit workforce, or are looking for an entry opening, it pays to start your job search at an online nonprofit job board.
Not only will you get a job much faster, in many cases you will also find better jobs than if you go the usual job hunting route.
What is a nonprofit job board? — These are online boards that have listings of available jobs. Most job boards have listings for nonprofits all over the country, so it does not matter if you are looking for a job in your own area or elsewhere.
Registering with a nonprofit job board — Using a job board the right way usually involves registering your profile and uploading a photograph and a resume.
This allows you to not only search for and save available jobs, it also allows would-be employers to find your resume and contact you for an interview.
What types of jobs are available? — Some job boards only list executive jobs, while others list every type of job in the nonprofit industry. Register for the boards that include the types of jobs you are looking for.
These jobs can include executive director, fundraiser, development director and special events director, right down to caseworker and receptionist.
How to find the best jobs — Register with various job boards and then visit them at least twice a day.
Job boards are updated with new job listings every few hours, so you do not want to miss any new ones that may be directly related to your experience and qualifications.
Then look for jobs you are interested in and submit your resume via the job board. Accept any interviews offered to you, as you never know where your dream job may be located. Click on nonprofit job board for more details.
