Career Tips

  • How To Network Without Being Annoying

    By The NonProfit Times — May 14, 2013

    When it comes to the job search, it’s not so much what you know that is important but who you know. That doesn’t mean your career skills aren’t important — far from it — but it is true that it is much harder to get a job without a good group of networking contacts. Getting these contacts is the easy part; it’s a little harder to find a way to stay in touch with them without getting on their nerves.

    By The NonProfit Times — May 9, 2013

    What’s the feeling you have most during your job search? If your experience is like most job seekers, it can probably be summed up in one word: Rejected.

    By The NonProfit Times — May 7, 2013

    By The NonProfit Times — May 3, 2013

    One of the most important parts of your resume is the section that highlights your career skills.

Identifying these skills is only half the battle; you have to market them well if they are to have the desired effect.

  • How Qualified Are You For That Job?

    By The NonProfit Times — May 1, 2013

    By The NonProfit Times — April 25, 2013

    Money isn’t everything but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. Unless you have recently won the lottery or are one of the lucky few who are set for life, chances are you are going to want your next job to have a starting salary that is as high as possible.

  • Social Networking For A Nonprofit Job

    By The NonProfit Times — April 18, 2013
