Finding non-profit jobs is not as difficult as you may think. Not if you follow these tips, and make job hunting your number one priority.
Get non-profit experience — While non-profit organizations will hire people without a non-profit background, most do prefer to hire someone that has worked in a non-profit organization before.
If you do not have this experience, do not worry, as it is quite easy to get some. Simply contact one or two of the non-profit agencies in your area offering services you are interested in and ask if you can volunteer there.
In many cases, just a few months of volunteer experience can help you at least get your foot in the door when it comes to getting an interview for a non-profit job.
Ask people who work in non-profit agencies — Jobs in the non-profit world are often filled from within. This means you should ask anyone you know that currently works in a non-profit agency, or has done so in the past, if they know of any job vacancies.
You may be surprised to find it is often easier to get an interview for one of these jobs as well. Especially if you are recommended by someone who works at the non-profit you would like to work at.
The Center for Non-Profit Management — The Center for Non Profit Management is a national organization that has local branches in many of America’s cities.
The organization helps non-profits and people that work in non-profits to become even more successful. It also has a job listing that lists many of the non-profit jobs available in agencies all over the country. Check out the website of the branch in your town, where you will usually find a job listing of all the available jobs in the area and how to apply for them.
Online non-profit job boards — There are several very good non-profit job boards online that you can search every day for new job listings.
A non-profit job board also allows you to upload your resume and a photograph, and then apply for jobs directly through their website. Prospective employers also have a presence there, so do not be surprised if you are contacted by one after they have read your resume, and asked if you would like to have an interview.
Register with several of these boards, however, as they will often have listings of different jobs.
Register with several executive search firms — There are a number of very good executive search firms that place employees in non-profit jobs.
These are especially good places to register with, as they will often represent organizations that do not advertise for staff publicly. That means you will usually have less competition and, in many cases, the jobs that are filled through these firms are higher-level and pay more.
Again, just be sure to register with several of them, as they will all represent different non-profits, and you do not want to miss out on a job you could be perfectly suited for.
Selling your home can be one of the most stressful things that you engage in, particularly if you need to do so quickly in order to finance the purchase of a home that you will be moving into. Many factors, both which you can control as well as those that may seemingly be beyond your control can pop up and limit your ability to quickly sell it. There are thankfully a number of steps that you can take to overcome these and sell your home quickly and painlessly.
Know the Market and Price Accordingly
Most buyers will do their due diligence given that a home is one of the biggest purchases that they will make over the course of their life. While, if you price your home much over the market value for it, you may eventually find a buyer, it may not be the fast house sale that you think you can otherwise get. If you, instead, price your home according to market value you can sell it quickly and efficiently and move into your next home. Get pricing comparisons and statistics and know how low you may be willing to go before your house is listed so that you can jump on any offers quickly.
Due Your Diligence on Buyers
When someone makes an offer, even if it is in the price range that you want to sell your home for, you should perform some basic due diligence on them and make sure that they are a good fit to buy your home in terms of income levels, credit checks, references, and so on. Even though these are more of a concern for a mortgage company that would be loaning the money to a buyer, if the mortgage company were to balk at financing their purchase, it can possibly set back the sale of your home by quite a significant period of time. Avoid this by getting pre approval letters from those who make an offer and performing some background checks on them as soon as they are getting ready to proceed with the offer.
Staging and Presentation of Your Home Is Important
The look and feel of your home is important on a quick sale. If you have any existing and noticeable problems that may be spotted by a buyer or upon inspection, be proactive and get these problems addressed before you sell your home. Have termite inspections done, broken devices repaired, and the home repainted to neutral colors. While this may result in an initial cost for you as a seller of your home, it will often save you a significant amount of time when you are selling your home as you can avoid the delays that will arise when they spot these issues and then ask you to have the home repaired to get it into condition for them to buy. Staging of your home is important and have it looking fresh and smelling good by a professional home staging company. Addressing these items early and often can eliminate these delays and help you to sell your home much faster than you otherwise would
