About this Session: If you are in a place of transition in your career, the next steps you take can make all the difference. This workshop is designed for those thinking about switching to a career in the nonprofit sector, those thinking about new career opportunities within the sector, and those in transition. With a hands-on approach, we’ll tackle the following key questions: What is a career map? How do you put one together? At what point in your career do you need one? How often should it be revisited? Do you need one even if you don’t want to be a CEO? Uncover these answers and more at this workshop.
Who Should Attend: Anyone desiring a roadmap for their nonprofit career
