Just a few short months ago so many of us felt at least a veneer of job security – and career maintenance and job searching were the furthest from our minds. Today, even essential nonprofit staff are nervous for their paychecks – and there’s anxiety that your job search skills are rusty, at best.
There’s good news. You can start a campaign. A campaign? No, not to fund that much needed building, mission essential equipment, or precious annual fund. Your campaign could be for you – and you don’t even need to be a fundraiser to do it.
Career maintenance and job hunting are very similar to nonprofit fundraising campaigns. In this presentation, we’ll look at how making campaign-like preparation and actions can lead to the most important gift – your next job.
