It’s hard to find useful nonprofit career advice. Many people just say “Stick with it! You’ll be rewarded!” But according to the Bridgespan Group, most nonprofit staff are NOT being groomed for leadership, and only 33% of the time do people from inside the nonprofit even attempt to fill senior leadership level positions. That means most of the time, you will have to make a leap to another nonprofit to move on up. But once you're in your new role, how do you succeed?

In this hands-on, how-to session by the author of Get the Job! Your Fundraising Career Empowerment Guide (rated 5 stars by Nonprofit.About.com), you get advice and materials that are easy to use and created especially for you, the busy fundraising professional who barely has time to eat lunch.
