How to find fundraising jobs by just doing three things
If you want to look for new fundraising jobs for non profits in your area, there are three things you can do that can make your job search a little easier. These things do not take that long to do but, once done, will enhance your job chances quite markedly.
Sign up for online job boards -- There are a large number of job boards around that country that are targeted towards non profit jobs and these include fundraising jobs.
Find several online job boards that you like and register for each of them. Once registered, upload your most recent resume as well as a professional photograph. Once this information is in the site's database, that will then allow you to be discovered every time a would-be employer searches for candidates that may match job openings he has.
With enough employers searching the database, you should quickly get interview. Be sure to also check the job listings yourself, so that you do not miss the opportunity to apply for any interesting fundraising jobs.
Sign up with an executive search firm -- The next thing you want to do is to sign up with an executive search firm and let them know how serious you are about needing a new job.
Once registered, you will usually be assigned your own account executive who will then try to find you a new job. Contact him twice a week just to check in and to keep your name in front of him so he thinks about you every time a new job arrives on his desk.
Go to every interview -- When looking for fundraising jobs, you will often be offered interviews for jobs you may not like. Be sure to accept every interview as a job may be much more relevant than it sounds in a job ad.
