Find inspiration, or be the inspiration, at the 20NTC Career Center

Looking for advice or inspiration in your nonprofit job search? Or have you been there, done that, and came away with a bucket of real-world knowledge you’re excited to share?

The Career Center returns to the Nonprofit Technology Conference, March 24-26, after an overwhelmingly positive response over the past two years.

Every day during lunchtime, the Career Center will be open from 12:15 to 1:00 pm. It’ll also be open on Tuesday and Wednesday, 3:15 to 4:45, during exhibit hall activity time.

How it works: Mentee Edition

Sign up if you’d like to work with a nonprofit professional to improve your job-seeking chances, advance in your current organization, or find a new role. Bring your résumé or your professional profile like LinkedIn (on-screen or printed out). Our pros will help you position yourself in the industry, level up your skills, and advise on how to network with your peers.

You’ll spend 15 minutes with your mentor, but that time should give you a solid base for professional growth. We hope you’ll feel refreshed and excited, with action items to make your résumé or profile shine.

How it works: Mentor Edition

You’ve been at this for years. You know what management wants when searching for strong candidates, and you want to share this knowledge with the NTEN community. You’re dedicated to helping good people find great opportunities, either in their current jobs or future ones. Up to the task?

Many community members are looking for your help. They love what they do, they love nonprofit work, and they want to improve their chances of advancement or improve themselves professionally. Our mentors help to polish résumés and improve online profiles, while at the same time offering advice and general knowledge about the nonprofit landscape.

Sign up to be a mentor and share your experience with the community.
