If you have been working in the non profit field for a while, you may be one of the tens of thousands of people looking for a new job at any one time.
If so, and you want to be sure you get access to the best non profit jobs out there, as well as jobs that are perfectly suited to your experience and skills, here is what you need to do.
Use an executive search firm -- The first thing you should do is to sign up with an executive search firm online that specializes in non profit jobs.
There are many of these firms around the country, and all operate in a different way.
Start off with an executive search firm that has listings for non profit jobs on its website. This will allow you to see what is currently out there and which non profits a search firm works with before signing up with them.
Registering with a non profit jobs search firm -- The mistake many people make is in registering with just one search firm.
If you do, you miss out on thousands of jobs that are being dealt with exclusively by other firms. This is why you should register for as many search firms as you can find online, then look closely at all the non profit jobs they have listed.
Getting your own account executive -- Once you feel as though you have exhausted your ability to get a job through sending out resumes and making phone calls, it is time to contact the search firm and ask them to assign an account executive to you.
He will then find out what types of jobs you are looking for, then push you with specific non profits to try to get you interviews. From these, you should easily get a non profit job you love.
