HOW TO BREAK INTO NONPROFIT WORK
Presented by: Kristina Phillips, Executive Director, CRC
Nonprofits account for over 12 million jobs in the private sector. It is the third largest workforce in the US and a diverse industry with a broad array of services. It takes more than just a good heart to succeed in the nonprofit sector and job candidates must understand how the industry differs from for profit positions. As a seasoned nonprofit leader, Kristina will discuss the unique challenges nonprofit leaders face ranging from funding to performance metrics. Kristina will share her wealth of nonprofit experience and knowledge. Attendees will participate in small groups activities as well as research and explore job opportunities.
