Finding Your Next Fundraising Job

Finding your next fundraising job can be a difficult process when you are unsure of the type of job you would like to get.

When considering new career opportunities keep your options open. You may need to think beyond salary as many smaller nonprofits can’t compete on salary but will instead offer other benefits such as flextime or the ability to work from home. Similarly, you many need to think beyond title. Some organizations set titles based on job responsibilities and if that doesn’t include managing people the employer may not offer a managerial title.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Instead of focusing on salary and title, you may want to consider other opportunities a new employer may offer such as a positive organizational culture, the authority to make decisions, or the chance to learn and expand your skills. Determining what is important to you will help you decide what your next move should be.

And when you are ready to make that move, the first place to go is the jobs section on the AFP Golden Horseshoe website. The section is open to members and non-members but members get the added benefit of receiving an email immediately after a new position is posted.
 

Good luck with your search!
