I’ve spent most of my career working in nonprofits, and I am here to tell you that — if you care about doing something you believe in and making the world a better place — it rules. Well, it can rule, if you pick the right one. (If you pick the wrong one, it can suck, just like in other sectors.)
At U.S. News & World Report today, I talk about what you should know about nonprofit work — including what it means to be a nonprofit in the first place, what types of jobs nonprofits hire for, what’s different about working at one, what kind of pay to expect, how to find out about job openings, and more.
