If you've got a degree but are finding closed doors in big business, you may be missing another way to gain experience and leadership skills.

Recruiters suggest turning an eye to nonprofit organizations.

Broad Rewards



Nonprofits don't have rigid schedules when it comes to hiring, so almost anytime is a good time to apply. And, although nonprofit organizations may not pay as much as the big firms, recruiters say there are several fringe benefits that outshine the dollars and cents.

We all appreciate praise and positive feedback to reassure us the work we are doing is up to par. The cause you support in a nonprofit organization may appreciate you more by offering rewards that go further than a pat on the back from the boss. Knowing your job is a part of strengthening your community or finding a cure for a disease is a rewarding experience.

Learning and Networking Aplenty

In most nonprofit organizations, each job requires an employee to wear several hats. Your job description will most likely be very broad, allowing you to perform several functions. This is a great way to develop new skills that you can take to any corporation. One important function is managing volunteers for the agency. Leadership and delegation are valuable tools to take away from the job experience.

While learning new skills and gaining more experience, you never know who is watching. In most places, the board of your local United Way or American Red Cross is comprised of heavy hitters, working professionals from major companies with a conscience for social responsibility. What better way to network and prove yourself as a leader than to work beside or project-manage a nonprofit event with these board members?

More Assets of Involvement

Good corporate citizenship is a growing trend in the workforce. Recruiters have told us they like to see charitable work on a resume and will often ask about these experiences during an interview. There is no better way to learn about your community and to meet community leaders than working for a nonprofit organization.

To get started in a nonprofit organization, ask professionals in the field for an informational and informal interview. Inquire about the types of people and the roles they fulfill in a nonprofit and if there are any openings within the organization. Volunteering for an organization is also a great way to find out if the agency is of interest to you and if you agree with the agency's services.

Once you have worked for a nonprofit agency for a year or two and spent that time making the world a better place, you could also make yourself an ideal job candidate in the eyes of a corporate recruiter.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
